1. Get your head checked by a professional as soon as possible. There are numerous cases where the person is misdiagnosed. We always head screen each person no matter what they tell us or who referred them to us
2. If there is a confirmed lice infestation, have the entire immediate family checked and any other caregivers-babysitters, nannies, etc. This helps to ensure that lice is taken care of the first time you are treated.
Many of the families we have seen have been battling lice for days, weeks, months, and even years because they are not aware of the re-infestation within their own family members and have not used effective treatment methods to begin with.
