This story is from England, so i'm not sure if it applies here. Each of my 3 kids has brought home 'head lice' from school. It happens. In Englend, the little bugg-ers have become resistant to most chemicals. interesting story for those who still have to deal with this each year.

Yeesh! I remember when my oldest girl was in daycare - she came home with head lice. We spent hours and hours having to go through her long hair! It was awful!

I remember visiting a few hippie habitations in the late 60's and 70's where mutual grooming was down to an art form....like watching chimps....

Talk about nit picking.... :lol:

one has to keep in mind that, in the commune, the kids had head lice, and the adults usually had to contend with Buster the body crab...

and most times, they all had both.....

Many communes had all the sanitary amenities of a downtown Calcutta alley. It was a time where everyone thought the sex was free, while paying for it with a host of STD's.....and some serious guilt for us Catholics...or former Catholics...

Thankfully, few of those diseases actually killed, the way they do today.

No worries - the little buggers are in Canada now.

Ont. was the first province to find resistant lice - BC was next. I believe they are now pretty wide spread across the country.

There is a cure that I read about - involves (if I remember rightly) vegatable oil rubbed into the head and a swim cap. Seems it smothers them.

I remember way back in a previous live in relationship - and sitting at the dinner table talking to her 7 yo when I noticed that one of her eyebrows was migrating over to the other eyebrow. Blue soap time.

I also remember reading an article where lice is one of the oldest creatures on earth. Right up there with cockroaches and rats. Rats, cockraoches and lice are the only creatures that can live on the nuclear atolls in the Pacific. Stands to reason - they each live off each other.

Oh man... I've had both lice and scabies... No idea where the lice came from, but thankfully I was the only one in the house that got it.. hell to get rid of the little buggers... but anyway..... the scabies, however.. there was a huge outbreak on the Island in the mid 90s... and myself with a compromised immune system.. had little to fight them off with... week after week of treatments for over a year... and everyone else in the house having to be treated too.. and ending up in the hospital in Halifax with a bout of rejection.. I was isolated and not allowed to shower any of that crap off... think that's what actually killed them finally... I wore the Nix cream for about 4 days... you're only supposed to have it on for 24 hours... I was in the hospital for a week in isolation... when I left, I no longer had scabies, and no longer smoked.... so, I guess the rejection bout was a good thing.. *L*

I traded winter hats with my buddy Willie French in Grade 3 Sherwood School and then had to stay home for 3 days so it didn't spread. When our friends came to our house looking for my brother and I we told them that were weren't allowed to come out and play because we had COOTIES! My Mother still pisses her pants every time we mention head lice.
