In brief: Many things
First visit your doctor for proper treatment (scabicide) and advice about preventing a recurrence.
Next boil or dry clean sheets, pillow cases, blankets, or any clothing exposed to the lice. Don't forget luggage). Finally, be sure all contacts/environments are treated simultaneously. These infestations usually occur in crowded settings such as barracks or camps.

In brief: Scabicide
A scabicide medication is used for the individual and any intimate contacts.
At times the hair is shaven to remove all the nits. Your doctor can certainly help you with this treatment.
