Hi, Welcome Immediately after the contact of an anti-lice preparations (within 10 minutes contact), adult and live lice will be killed if you apply properly. But these preparations will not destroy the nits. If you apply consecutively for three weeks as a weekly once application, then it will eliminate new hatching and thereby the total infestation. All contacts are to be treated simultaneously

doctor1 MD

Oh- these white spots can very well be eggs of lice. Get the treatment done. Gamascab lotion or antilice shampoos.
