Sarah, you need not worry.As kids and teenagers, this problem is quite common. As you grow up, this problem will get resolved permanently.For the time being, you can use Nit removing shampoo / hair oil and use the Nit picking comb.

We have an infestation right now (3 out of 5 members) and we treated with R&C on Monday morning. One of my daughters found another live louse on her head last night (36 hrs later). Should we have retreated her right away? I was hesitant because the chemicals are so harsh and I also heard it can take a while to kill the lice. At the same time I am nit picking and found 5-10 per session (less last night).

My granddaughter has been dealing with head lice off and on since April. I ve only found the adult lice (6) once, however, I consistently find nits. I have applied otc Nix, Lice free, home solutions, consistently comb outs, washing beddings, pillows, coats, clothing, vacuuming couches etc. Today, after another Lice Free Shampoo hair washing, I found nits again. Not a lot but enough to trouble me as well as my poor granddaughter. I am repeating all the suggested cleaning etc. I am at wits end!!! What else do I do? Is it common to find some nits on our heads? I hope not. This is so stressful and causing us anxiety. Please, any suggestions are greatly appreciated. If there is a charge for this service, please do not respond as I am on social security and money is tight.
