Confirm Lice: Verify that you or the person with lice has lice. Itching, red scalp lumps, and little white or yellowish eggs
Isolate Infected Items: Lice live on bedding, clothing, and personal items. To kill lice and nits, wash and dry the affected person's bedding
Use a Lice Treatment Shampoo or Lotion: Buy a doctor-recommended over-the-counter or prescription lice treatment.
Use a Lice Comb: Apply and rinse the treatment, then comb the hair with a fine-toothed lice comb while wet.
Depending on the intensity of the infestation, you may need to repeat the treatment after a week to kill all lice and nits.
Manual Nit Removal: Nits are tough and may not come off with combing. Carefully remove them off hair shafts using fingernails or a nit-picking tool.
Notify Close Contacts: Tell classmates and family members who have been in close touch with the lice-carrier so they can check for infestations
Contact a Healthcare expert: If over-the-counter medicines don't work or you're concerned about using them
Remember that lice removal and prevention require thorough and regular treatment and prevention. To achieve lasting eradication, be patient and persistent.
