At this point you may need some special care, but don't lose heart. It can be fixed. ...Read more

Using a lice shampoo afterwards can kill what's left or there are prescription lotions that will. ...Read more

Get him to sit still: The biggest problem with 9 y/o boys is getting them to stop moving for a second so you can get a good look.
