Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

then opt fa home remedies..anti-lice shampoos r nt safe..
firstly wet baby's hair using warm water and apply some baby hair conditioner/shampoo also can be used then start combing by fine toothed comb gently making sections..and detangle hairs..after this wash it thoroughly and dry hairs and comb it by normal hair comb..and make sure wash combs and towels used during this process..repeat this alternate days fa one week..it ll give u result..

my doc suggested perlice lotion. please check with Ur doctor if u can use any. don't comb Ur baby's skin too much as the cradle cap can get scraped and cause deeper wounds. please buy 2 big bottles of medikee and give to your maid. little children cry a lot because of love bite

Dr. Payal M

check with ur pediatrician abt using anti lice shampoo. they r very effective ( perlice is v good) with results after first wash itself. may need only 1 or 2 applications.
give anti lice shampoo to all adults who r handling baby including urself (since lice may have spread to others) as u dont want the baby to b cured and then reinfected frm any of u.

Those lil devils still exist. I thought it's extinct. Oh dear baby... how much itching it will be for it.
Follow as all others said. check in clothes as wel then.

application of neem oil helps in getting rid of lice. mix 50:50 combo of neem oil and coconut oil apply daily and wash off as and when required. This procedure is natural and helps 100%.
