Help, My Child Has Head Lice!
The most important measure to get rid of head lice is complete hygiene, says Rolf Stühmer in his book The Big Book of Health. Take the plunge and have the hair cut as short as possible, or comb it several times daily with a special comb.
Wash the hair with coal tar shampoo or warp the head in a cloth soaked in hot vinegar.
It is also important to boil all clothing which could have come into contact with the lice, or to treat them with a suitable disinfectant or insecticide from the drugstore.
