it is headlice and a pain to clean the house and everything. We all have it and I had to cut my long hair short. Sad cause it was being grown to donate for lock of love.
According to CDC(centre of disease control), intense itching (“pruritus”) and rash caused by an allergic reaction to the louse bites are common symptoms of lice infestation. Wash the Clothing, bedding, and towels in hot water and dry them in sun after machine drying them. Topical permethrin or Lindane cream may be needed which are available by prescription only.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
I've been putting the bedding in the dryer every morning since we found them and I'm also vacuuming the couches and soft chairs. I've been combing every morning everyone's head (husband at night since he's gone to work when we wake), finding nits. But for two days I haven't found any. Oh, and we have been doing an oil treatment every 2 days to suffocate larva and adults.
Yesterday, we did the second treatment and I found 2 eggs on my son, none on my daughter, one one my husband and two larva. My husband found many larva on my head.
I've got questions for you. 1. Since we didn't find any adults lyce does it mean that the product worked and should be all gone or could there still be some live one and should we do one more treatment in case we missed some eggs that hadn't hatch or in case some larva survived.
When combing we are finding lots of dry skin, dust and some looks like nits and louse. How can we tell them apart, we don't see anything on the hair but finding some when combing. I figured that the louse will be on the head to feed and not on the hair.
I really want this to end. I have a daycare to run too. Feels like all I'm doing is lyce prevention.
so what did you do? did you find out its lice for sure? or some other bug insect?
