  1. Hi I need your help so my daughter has got a lot of head lice and now she has sores on her scalp which is really bad I dont how to get rid of her head lice and her sores at the same time but her sores are from the head lice

    1. 1. See your physician. Always start there…..
      2. Treat with anti-lice shampoo (from pharmacy as recommended by a physician, not some nutty naturopathic thing that won’t work).
      3. Use a lice comb to get rid of eggs and lice….the LiceMeister is one that actually works.
      4. Wash all bedding and clothing with hot water and vacuum the place throughly.
      5.Check all family members as well.
      6. Use the lice comb regularly for a while to be sure.
      7. Let other parents with children your daughter plays with, and the school, know about the issue so they can also check/treat.
