Anne, my kids brought home head lice this last summer (I never had them as a child so this was mine and my kids first time) and it was horrible. I didint know that lice could make you feel like you have the flu, so now every time my head itches just a little I freak out. But just so you know, we tried the mayo thing and it didnt work, til I read somewhere onine about
virgin olive oil, and it really worked!!! Also ALOT of picking out the eggs one by one, it took a couple of weeks (because kids dont like to sit still long) of picking out the nits one by one in a very lighted area outside. My daughter had hundred's of louse, everytime I combed through, the comb was covered in them, and me and her had thousands of eggs, it wasnt a very fun summer, so I feel for ya.
