Lice can be a troublesome worry for many people. And continous therapy is the need here. Weekly therapy is required for atleast 2 -3 months, may be more sometimes. First and safest therapy is to apply warmed coconut oil mixed with mahabhringraj oil to hair wait for upto an hour and do a lice comb. (steel). Every week. For 6 weeks. Then seventh week apply perlice rinse cream for 30 mins and use lice comb. Then shampoo. Perlite or other therapies can't be misused so please follow this. Properly and read inserted paper also. Better to consult any dermatologist near your house.

When lice start living in hair, they also start to lay eggs, or nits. Lice can survive up to 30 days on a person's head and can lay eight eggs a day. Lice attach their nits to pieces of hair, close to the scalp. Let's have a detailed discussion for better advice and medication plan.
