What do I do about lice infestation?

Lice. Tx of lice requires accurate identification of nits & / or lice. A pediculicide is usually used- otc like nix (permethrin) or rid or prescription meds like lindane or malathion. Work carefully through hair & remove individual nits. Purchase a special lice nit comb to aid you. Check for nits & remove as seen over the next 7 to 10 days. If there are nits after 7 to 10 days – a 2nd pediculicide tx may be needed.
See your doctor. If you have not already done so, you should be seeing your doctor. Often when lice infestation is severe, multiple treatments must be employed simultaneously. These include prescription creams/lotions, pills and a nit comb. See your doctor.
