Your number one priority is to get everyone checked and cleared by a professional.
If that’s not possible, treat everyone in your family as though they have it.
When people try to treat it themselves and realize a month or so later they still have it, they often think they got it again, when in fact they never really got rid of it.
They just got rid of part of it.
The most common reason people fail to get rid of lice is thinking “That person probably doesn’t have it.” And not treating them.
It can take just one bug or two eggs to keep an infestation going.
If you haven’t verified for yourself that every hair on their head is free of lice and eggs, assume they still have lice and treat them.
Otherwise, you are rolling the dice on giving lice time to make the problem harder and more expensive to solve.
This is a case of where a pinch of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
We’ve had clients come to us after a year or more of battling lice because they made this mistake over and over again.
That’s usually over a hundred hours of their time and hundreds of dollars of various products and DIY methods wasted for no good results.
Don’t make the same mistake.
Treat everyone in the family as if they have it. This may sound overly dramatic, and it is a little bit, but this is war.
That’s the mindset you need. Don’t take half-measures.
