New here. I've got a question on lice and since it looks like you all were discussing it recently, I thought I'd ask here.
I have soon-to-be first grader and fourth grader and we were exposed to lice over the wknd when we were visiting some friends. It turns our my 6 yr old was sleeping in the same bed (one night) as the girl with nits that they just discovered on Sunday morning. My fourth grader may have had less exposure, but I'm worried about my six yr old and myself since she snuggled in my bed with me from 4am on.....
I've been combing her hair with a lice comb, using eucalyptus spray and NOT shampooing her hair for the past two days, and I don't see anything, but I feel like our heads are ticking lice bombs!
Could it be that I don't see anything yet she will get lice? I've tried looking up incubation periods for lice, and it says 5-7 days, but I don't see any nits..... but it seems too good to be true that we may have dodged a bullet on this one.
To make matters more stressful, we are off to visit family on Tuesday and I do NOT want to bring lice on vacation to someone else's house. Suggestions/BTDT experience, pls.
