Head lice

My daughter complained of an itchy head yesterday, checked head, couldn't see anything. Today get call from school to say they had found a few eggs behind ears. 😩
She has blonde hair, super thick hair to her waist. Always tied back. I had sprayed hair tonight with Hedrin, and painstakingly used the nitty gritty comb through her hair (1 hr to do)
I found 1 massive nit and about 3 little ones just behind the left ear area and hardly nothing else. So.... can they be localised to just one area?

Lice are most commonly found around the ears or at the back of the head or that's what I was told anyway. Obviously they can be in other areas, but these are most common. She probably just had a mild case! 😀
