Not appropriate: Lice medication is over the counter and has multiple names. See your drugstore. If you are uncertain about the diagnosis see your doctor and she will prescribe medication for you with detailed instructions regarding your clothing, sheets, towels, and laundry in general as well as your household. It is infectious and contagious.
