Last time dd2 had headlice we had a "kit" from the chemist which included about three different combs, a plastic cape and a "calendar" thing noting when you had to comb and for how long. It was really good, but I lent it to a friend and never got it back . Does anyone know what it is? I seem to remember it had a picture of a louse with a red circle crossed through on it (like a road sign), and that all the info was on the net too, but I can't find it.
