The best treatment I found is just conditioner and a metal comb. It doesn't kill them but it makes it easier to get both nits and the live and dead eggs out

The first time we got them i actually didnt know what to lool for or what they looked for. Coop had them a few days by this stage. In the end we got rid of them and have had them back a few times since but definately havent had them for over a year ir close to it. Last time i remember seeing them was when a kid come to sleepover and his mum didnt tell me he had them. I treated us but we never had them and did the house out too as i have a very strong dislike to them. Reminds me i should prolly start spraying coop again each day.

My daughter has had them several times. First time you freak out for sure. But after a while you realise its not that you're a bad parent. Its just part of having a school age child.
I use store brought nit defence spray and as long as DD uses it every day before school she is usually fine.
PS Please be careful with how much tea tree oil you use. It can be quite harsh if you use too much.
Good luck and dont feel so guilty

It's been a day I tell you!!! I think the main thing is I've been so stressed and behind in all the cleaning for ages and I'm so disorganised that I really didn't need the pressure... Thanks for all your support, I think I just needed to talk about it...
