    Default Head Lice

    You should repeat the process again in 7 days to kill the cycle in case you missed any eggs! It only takes one louse to hatch from one egg and they can lay 100's of eggs in a single day!

    Default Head Lice

    So I just checked ds's hair just then while he's sleeping and I can still see some eggs there. Is that normal or does that mean I didn't do it properly? Should I wait for 7 days before another treatment or do something about it? Eg put conditioner in his hair and comb it? Or go through his hair manually and try to get them out one by one? Will the eggs still hatch now that it's been treated?

    Default Head Lice

    With my kids I used to remove the eggs by hand because the metal comb never seemed to get them. If they are away from the scalp it means they're old eggs but i removed them anyway. If you get an egg use the comb and press down on it - if it clicks its live...
