In brief: Treat it

This involves: treatment of actively infested people, killing of lice from clothing, and prophylaxis of close contacts.
Pyrethrins, malathion, benzyl alcohol, and lindane are examples of medications used for lice treatment. The space limitations here cannot do justice to this topic- go to the cdc website for the most comprehensive answer- http://www.Cdc.Gov/parasites/lice/head/treatment.Html.
