Help, I'm mortified.

May be completely overreacting but for the last week or so I've had a seriously itchy head. Ran a comb through and found a nit, I've since found 2 more. I'm absolutely mortified and feel so dirty! I've checked my sons hair and can't see anything.

But what is the best treatment to use? I need them gone asap.

It suffocates them and destroys the eggs. You can be nit free in 15 minutes, they can't become immune to it.

It's like magic.

We've all been there, I second Hedrin. I'm sure I had them when my son was riddled in reception and I didn't notice confused. My head itched like mad but I couldn't see any on the comb. I used Hedrin on both of us.

Don't be embarrassed I was 69 when my 7 yr old DD (don't ask!) kindly shared her infestation with me....not DH he has no hair. Hedrin was excellent!
Good combing grin
