• doesnt the lice shampoo kill headlice eggs?
  • They make commercial sprays that state that they do just that, but I would be skeptical. The only way to kill them is to be rid of them completely...removing them from the hair and very throughly washing and vacuuming linens, carpeting and furniture. I've treated dozens of children in the past at previous jobs and those are the only ways to get rid of remove them.
  • Hmmm...I know you can use mayo or olive oil, and of course the shampoo you get from the pharmacy, I know those things will kill the bug, but I'm not so sure if they kill the eggs, because your supposed to do them again in like a week.
  • Yes, Last year we used this to terminate those pests and it did an acceptional job of doing so. When we ordered it it came in a matter of two days or so. The company rushed it to my home. I had used the stuff the hospital gave us and that did not work, for those pests were immune to it. We made sure we took all the precautions of bagging stuffed animals/toys, bedding and clothing/coats, mittens and scarves. This place I ordered from is called Licex Here is a tip though as you use this. When the treatment is in your hair use a showercap and leave in longer then the time it says. Why? well i found it to be more thurough and less messy. This stuff kills those buggers with natural oils, no harsh chemicals, straight to the nits it decentagratres them to the ecosceletin. This stuff is affective. If you don't beleave me read the testamonies on the site. Beleive me, this stuff works.
  • For head lice problem wash your hair with vinegar. It will kill all the nits in two days. Apply coconut oil to your head after shampoo and condition. Add ten to fifteen drops of tea tree oil into shampoo bottle and use it daily. Rub listerine mouth wash on your head. This will kill all the lice.
  • Vinegar does not work I used that on my 6yr old. I used every over the counter remedy under the sun in her hair last year. I even used shampoos and sprays in her hair that are supposed to repel lice, but it kept coming back! I knew that Kwell worked but none of the pharmacies here carry it anymore and my doctor did not want to prescribe it because it contains pesticides. I was picking eggs out of her hair for a week when she first got it. Going thru her hair for 6-8 hours at a time. You just miss just one egg and boom they are back. Then I found this stuff called Ovide (Malathion), it is prescription strength and you have to leave it on for 8-12 hours and it smells like gasoline, this worked it not only killed all the live lice but killed the eggs too! I have not seen any live bugs in her hair since and it has been 6 months now. I have suggested Ovide to other people too whose children have come down with it and they were all lice free after using it. Since it is a prescription your insurance pays for it. The generic Malathion only cost me $10 (a lot less than that stuff on the internet!). Most doctors will not want to prescribe it until you try something else first due to the pesticide content but I rather use that once than all the other stuff 20 times. Another friend of mine came back from camp recently and both her and her daughter had it! They both used Nix and used it 3 times in a 10 day period, she was just checked again and she still has live lice even after using Nix 3x in 10 days. Her doctor told her that RID is better. Thats funny cause when RID didnt work on my child I was told NIX is better! (What a crock of B.S. huh!). She finally got a prescription for the Ovide yesterday so hopefully it will work like it did for my kids and for my other friends kids. I would never want to go through this again especially after my child was treated by ADULT family members after catching this, even for months after it was gone from her hair if someone came down with it my child was blamed!
  • Try some home remedy instead of over the counter chemicals.
