whats a treatment for lice?

my child has lice, shes had it sense she was in pre-k we’ve tried alot of things , & most things get rid of it for like two weeks, whats a way to get rid of it for atleast a lil longer?

  • Apply the mixture of water and vinegar in the ratio of 3:1 on scalp for 12 hrs. The head should then be shampooed thoroughly with head lice shampoo, like Rid or Nix and hot water and then remove nits with a lice comb dipped in hot vinegar. It should be repeated 2-3 times a week.
  • Try to remove the live lice and nits manually.
  • Be sure to wash your child’s clothing and bedding in hot water and vacuum to remove lice and nits from furniture, carpets, stuffed animals, car seats, etc.
  • Keep the hair short.
