In brief: Tx environment too
Wash clothing or linens in hot water. Soak personal items like combs or brushes in hot water for at least 10 minutes (or throw them out if this is an option).
Vacuum floors, carpets, mattresses, upholstered furniture & your vehicles.

Tx of lice requires accurate identification of nits & lice. A pediculicide is usually used- OTC like Nix 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.

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.
