Horror of horrors, we have an invasion!! The school has been a hotpot of lice for years but we have managed to avoid. The last term, my dd, has gotten very independent and taken on, doing her own hair. During our holiday, she started to scratch but on inspection, she had burnt her head right through her hair. Two weeks later, scratching still and her brother started to scratch – so major investigation of heads launched. She is absolutely riddled, he had a few and I had three – arrrgh!!! This was discovered last night – so went with the wet hair, conditioner and nit comb. Stripped every bed and towel in the house and doing mammoth laundry today. All teddies, hugging and sharing of beds banned!!
DH went out and bought Nitty Gritty – which hopefully will do the trick.
