I have only found nits on my child's head and treated her once with nix, (permethrin) do I need to re-treat next week?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Treat twice

It is recommended particularly with nix (permethrin) to repeat the treatment one week later. The most important part of treatment however is " nit picking"
