In brief: Manual Labor

Lice have been becoming very resistant lately to normal treatments, like rid and nix (permethrin).
Even to prescription lindane. Some of the newer Permethrin free remedies like lice md and ovid offer alternatives that will sometimes work. However, nothing helps more than spending the hours with the nit loosening gel and that little comb getting out every nit and louse you can find, then repeating it daily.
