    Don't be embarrassed. This happens all the time. It does not matter how clean you keep your house or your child. Those little buggars can really jump. Call and speak to your child's principal or the school nurse. They HAVE to keep things like this confidential. A note will be sent home with the children and your child is probably not the only one that came down with them over the weekend.

      I think it great how everyone here helps out with kind words and advice no matter what someone's situation may be. From serious medical issues, to lice, and even what someone's precious little girl should be for halloween. I love this place and all the people here. You guys are the best. (Whoa, I am starting to sound like Eye, huh?) hee hee

        My mother was a beautician and she said that Lice can jump up to 8 FEET. They just have to be in the same room with another child who has them to get them, too. You can walk by someone at the mall and get lice. Of course, then they take them to school and everyone has them because they're always together. Don't worry about it! That was one of those stories that we didn't want to scare you with. But as you can see, everyone knows someone who's had them.

        In case I go missing call Moonlightpearl, Granny, twpclerk or Smile! Then have them call Crops because we're probably together at the Yoville Races!

          OOPS or GOOF OFF is my FAVORITE LiCe Killer

          Like the many of you have experienced...my daughter kept getting them OVER and OVER again..being sent home from school each time..Couldn't figure out WHERE she was getting them from..til observing her normal pleasures of laying on our Golden Retrievers NECK often.. That is where she was getting them from..Wasn't supposed to be able to get them from dogs..but..DID!!

          I found that putting OOPS or Goof Off ( That adhesive remover stuff) on a cotton ball..and putting on the roots and strands of hair...killed the lice instantly! and did not irritate the scalp because I only had it on her for a brief time before washing off.. Saved TONS of time and effort!! Boys never got the lice..

          My Doctor was not pleased with the school telling me I had to take her to the Doctor to get treatment...she fussed that the lice are not disease problems..just a nuisance.. Far worse problems than that needed attending to besides simple case of lice she used to say!!

          Bless you!! Frustrating!!

            Here we are discussing the dreaded little buggers and it seems that any child who has dry clean hair is bound to get them some time or another after several times of a child or grand child or a individual I had worked with came down with them, I would go ape and treat everything in site, poor kids didn't know what was going on but they put up with it so now as I have gotten older and got more info on the bugs, and that they are becomming more resistant to the pesticides, new ways of treating these with out spending ungodly amount of money they say use vasaline or mayo leave in for about an hour comb thru and then wash hair withan dish soap like dawn I now too put just a Little baby oil or a anti frizz oil in the kids hair about twice a week save a lot of time as those little bugs can't lay eggs on oily hair shafts.

                Ok since you asked. I did another treatment last night and they are GONE! We were the first ones at the school this morning so he could get checked, and she agreed that they are gone! She told me that there were I think 3 4th grader's who have it (or had it, I am not sure). Then it hit me, Cameron's best bus buddies are in the 4th grade!!! Then another thing hit me, if the school KNEW there was a case of it, why didn't they let other parents know or at least do an in school head check. Oh well, I think now that they have at least 4 reports, that there will be notes sent home and some head checks done. I hope so anyway.

                    I thought head lice were breeding in England only as we seem to have had the infestation for the last two decades! We used to have Nitty Nora the nit nurse who inspevted heads in the 50's. Then she was needed no longer......and guess what he problem is worse than ever! hair conditioner is a brilliant lice remover , put on hair and comb through, the little blighters can't hold on. They are resistant to normal hairwashing but they can't fly or be caught from jumping. The following link is quite a good article.
