    Well if direct contact with mineral spirits does them in not sure why 190 proof Everclear or moonshine would not also work..and be safer. If a person had any left they could have a screw driver or two.

    Meant to fit a cure for lice an old pal used to recommend years back. He say.."They are real easy to cure..just paint one black then the rest of them will refuse to eat with him..and they will all leave." lol. Whatcha think? Hope that wasnt too horribly politiical incorrect. There were several other fairly exotic remedies floating around back in those days.

    If you want medical treatment, call your pediatrician and ask for Sklice (ivermectin). It works.

    If you don't want to use medication, go to nuvoforheadlice.com and follow the directions to the letter.

    I thought the idea of these forums were to discuss ways to do things in SHTF or when normal services weren't available....if a pediatrician is still on duty at the office and you have internet access...then why would someone bother asking a forum full of non pediatricians medical advice? And why would we give the advice of call a pediatrician? When did we become just a dr referral site?

    Jeez-louise.....just saying.

    I have a sister with two young girls. She swears by the use of lavender shampoo and conditioner before there's a problem. If she doesn't have the shampoo/conditioner, she adds lavender oil. Swears it helps and she hasn't had a problem in quite awhile. I would also agree with the post that said don't allow them to use brushes, hats, etc. from others. I know they can be pesty once you have to deal with them.

    I used the head lice shampoo from Walmart on my kids heads. Worked fine. I keep a few bottles on hand at home. The school nurse told me that using the blow dryer helps somewhat. Also lavender shampoo.

    Parents always forget about the car. It's a prefect place to get a little guy back on your head and have a problem again in 2 weeks.


    My suggestion would be not to wait and just get the Nix stuff at the store. You really don't want a nasty infestation. We've been seeing a new improved lice around here and they are twice as hard to kill.

    My wife got it from school, she runs a Pre school so you know how she got it, we tried all the over the counter stuff and me picking the dam things out. That did not work, maybe just slowed them down a bit. We went to a specialist hair place here in Los Angeles call the Hair Angeles or something like that. This is ALL they do, nice folks and they guarantee their work, but it wasn't cheap. My wife has long brown hair and she spent two Saturdays in the chair at their salon, special shampoos other stuff, total bill was just under $500, yeah that hurt, but she was completely clean.
    I was pissed and wanted to hand the bill to the school but that idea did not go very far if you know what I mean...........
