Doctors' Answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" - Head Lice

These comments are made for the purpose of discussion and should NOT be used as recommendations for or against therapies or other treatments. An individual patient is always advised to consult their own physician.

Question:I have shampooed my children's hair twice with Ridd and used the Ridd spray in my house.I also washed and disinfected sheets, clothing, combs etc. So why do I still find nits in their hair and they still are scratching their heads?

Answer: Inability to clear lice infections usually indicated re-infection. For children, this usually means that one of their cohorts is still infected and reinfecting them. Contact your neighbors, teachers, etc. and keep at it until they are disease free.
