Please don't worry about Danni spreading lice to your child, we are working very hard to keep the louses off as soon as they become nymphs. Her heart would break if she were ostracized. At the same time, if your kids have had contact with her in the past week, might want to check their hair:-)

I have learned a lot about this nasty 4 letter word! A louse is an adult lice, a nit is an egg of lice, a nymph is a baby louse. An adult an live 30 days on a human head. A female can lay between 100 and 300 eggs during her lifespan. The most harm committed where lice are involved is the products used to kill them. Bill used to work for Terminex and recognized the ingredients in the treatment shampoo for lice, he wore gloves and masks when using them. So we are bathing Danni twice a day and combing her hair with a lice comb while wet to remove the lousy lice. A miracle: No other person in our home has lice, and the girls sleep in the same bed. I just feel bad that I didn't catch this quicker, poor girl has been scratching her head raw. It took 18.7 years of having children for this problem to arise in my home, I'm glad it's happened now instead of back when I would have been horrified and doused my child with chemicals.
