My 4 yr old daughter got nits for the first time a few weeks ago. I treated her and myself and my husband and we found I also had a few. My husband didn't find any although he was a little itchy before treatment. We seemed to have got rid of them.

One afternoon about a week later we were all playing outside and found later that my baby daughter got bitten by mossies or sandflies on her head. She's alergic to mossies. Since then, I have been really itchy on and off on my head. I didn't know if the lice were back or if I got bitten by sandflies. We can't see any bites on my head, but have seen lots of white nit shells. But I can't see it being lice as for weeks now, I have been itchy and no one else I have close contact with; husband, 2 kids, are itchy or have signs of lice.

What is going on?

  • Sometimes you need to re-treat your hair, if you did not get rid of them completely. Make sure you wash all clothing in hot water, boil brushes in hot water as well. Make sure all teddy bears are bagged in garbage bags and tied tightly for 2 weeks. Also use tea tree oil shampoo between treatments. If you do all this you should be able to get rid of those little bugs!
