What do I do when my child keeps coming home from being with the other parent?? This has happened several times and it keeps reaccurring.

My daughter keeps coming home from her Mothers with lice and we have treated her several times. She is always nit and lice free and then she goes for a visit. Low and behold she comes back home exposing everyone to it again. I really could use some advice on this situation!:(

Amanda, how old is your daughter, how often does she go for a visit and how long is she there? I only ask because there are a number of preventative measures she could take that you could teach her, but if she isn't old enough, it may not be possible. I guess you could send her with her own tea tree oil shampoo and conditioner - lice HATE tea tree oil. But what measures you can take depend on her age. Also, is she receiving the repeat treatments?

Does her Mother realise you need to wash, clean and sterilise everything? I mean everything, Toys, bed sheets, doonah, pillows etc etc. Have you spoken to her Mother about this issue? I'd suggest having a talk to her and seeing if you can resolve it that way.
