Need special shampoo: A medicinal shampoo, such as Nix (permethrin), is needed to kill lice and their offspring. There are several over-the-counter products to choose from. The key is to get rid of the eggs and kill the hatched lice before they reproduce. If any eggs survive (they are on hairs, near the scalp), the cycle just begins all over again. Without Nix, a person must pick off every egg and crush every louse. ...Read more

I do not know: Young infants generally generate a lot of body heat, and if you are keeping her bundled up as well, she simply may be sweating as she loses body heat through her scalp/hair, causing the wetness. Fevers can do the same thing, so just make sure she is not febrile. Best wishes. ...Read more
