My stupid brother in law just called... My wife is incensed!! We spent boxing day at her parents for their families Xmass.....we even stayed overnight..... Today he calls to tell us that his 6 year old HAS HEAD LICE!!! AHhhhhgg...... My wife is currently washing EVERYTHING!! I am off to the laundry mat with the bed comforters!! Yee Haaa... The worst part of it is.....my wife playfully scratched his head on Thursday.....to which out of the blue he said....." I don't think I have head lice". His parents said that this was due to them recently checking at school..... I think the little SHIT knew it!! Damn.....ever since the call my head has been itching!!! AHHhhhhh I think I need to go to the range for a while!!! We checked our kids and so far we seem to be ok...................... DAM!!

I heard in a news story not long ago that current over the counter "cures" will be rendered ineffective in about 4 to 6 years because of resistance developed to them. Nice huh? Bob

You and your wife should just shave your head and be done with it! [img]http://www.dmccully.com/nohair110.jpg[/img]

Head lice are a sign of good hygiene. Head lice don't like dirty, oily hair. The cleaner your kids' hair, the better chance they're gonna get them at some point. We've been thru the ritual cleansings about four times.

When I was a kid, my little sister dragged head lice home from school. Everyone in the family got infested except for me. I used a blow dryer with high heat setting and everyone else air dried their hair. I guess I cooked the buggers and the nits before they could really breed.

Now my head itches. Dam you! My stepchildren had them so bad. We just couldn't get rid of them. This was almost a four month battle. We ended up doing the house, and treating everyone once every six days for almost two months until we finally got rid of them.

Oh well... IIRC, there were quite a few lice scares when I was in grade school... My parents would get a call from the school that this or that kid in my (or my sister's) class had lice, and so on... More hair washing, my mom developed a taste for crew cuts, and such... I never got lice, though... Then again, niether of us got chicken pox (we both got the vaccine a few years ago, just in case we wern't really naturally immune) although everyone we knew did...

These cute little guys live in almost everybody’s eyelashes. The mite Demodex spp., which belongs to Class Arachnida, Order Acarina, lives around hair follicles (Demodex folliculorum hominis) or in the secretory ducts of sebaceous (fat) glands connected to the hair follicles (Demodex brevis) of humans. The preferred sites are facial skin, forehead, cheeks, eyelashes and external ear channels. The size of demodices varies from 0.1 mm to 0.4 mm. Adult parasites have four pairs of short legs. They can slowly move on the skin especially during the night. In humans, the infestation is known as 'demodicosis' and occurs world-wide.

Thanks Alot...the pics really are awesome.

I knew I should not have read this post. (scratch, scratch) Not that it wasn't informative (scratch, scratch), but it makes you think of things (scratch, scratch, scratch) that you normally wouldn't have. Oops, gotta run and (scatch, scratch) take that scalding shower, followed by the body blowdry on high, then the vaseline body wrap.

I've never had lice. I can't think of anyone of my friends through life that have had lice, though I'm sure there were a couple. I do remember one poor kid that got sent home everytime they did a "lice check" in 3rd grade. Maybe Florida just has more lice?
Link Posted: 12/31/2002 6:19:30 AM EST
Well it looks as if we got off lice free... Its been two days and not a bug... WHEW! We bought the NIX shampoo but did not use it....the smell was horrible....and it warns that some might react to it....my wife is alergic to all sort of things so we decided to wait it out.....WE WON!!!! Thats two kids aged 12 and 9 and two parents that are glad to remain nit free... Never had em.....never want em.
