Lice are common in children and can usually be treated at home without medical intervention. The first thing that you should do is to purchase lice shampoo and a nit comb. Make sure that you follow the directions on the shampoo carefully so that you will treat the problem properly. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Using the nit comb is very important because it will help you to get rid of the nits or the lice eggs. Grown lice that are already hatched are fairly easy to get rid of and will usually disappear after one or two washings with the shampoo. However, it can be difficult to get rid of nits with shampoo alone.

You will also need to treat the soft items of your home as well. For example, wash any stuffed animals, bed linens and curtains in hot water. You should also replace your combs and brushes or at least soak them in hot water for 10 minutes.

Finally, make sure that you are checking hair daily for signs of lice. They can be extremely difficult to get rid of and you must be diligent when you are looking to get rid of them for good. You should also keep an eye on the other members of the household because it is easy for them to spread from one person to the next.
