Comment from: jamess, 45-54 Female Published: October 07

My sister, niece, nephews, cousins all have a history with some kind of lice and never follow thru on the complete treatment. I spend all my time cleaning my house and my hair and body every time they come over. They are also in denial of it, I'm really depressed. These lice seem to be everywhere and gets on my face which leaves bites. I do all the treatment then they're back with a visit if I forgot to put my cover in dryer or one of them riding in my car.
