Can someone tell me how long will it take to end a lice infestation with rubbing alcohol?

3 doctors agree

In brief: Long time

I don't think rubbing alcohol is strong enough to kill lice.
If you had short hair and carefully removed all the lice and nits it might work. But i would recommend a prescription lice product (and removal of all nits). Best to treat again in 8 or 9 days to be sure.
