What Can I Do After my Treatment?

- Brushes and Combs may be boiled for 20 minutes or Soak in Alcohol for 1 hour.
- Clean your bed linens, clothes, jackets, hats, backpacks, stuffed animals, dolls, etc. Vacuum, or put aside in a bag for 48 hours prior to using.
- Wash all bedding and clothing used within the last 24 hours in the hottest setting. Pillows, comforters and stuffed animals can be placed in the dryer, on high for a minimum of 20 minutes.
- Vacuum floors and upholstered furniture in commonly used areas, do not forget about your car. Child car seats can either be lint rolled or vacuumed.
- Wipe down surfaces such as leather.
- Early detection is the most important step in the fight against lice, make lice checks part of your routine.
- Notify friends and family who may have come into contact. This includes school, camps, and daycare providers.
Wet Head Lice Check:
- Wet hair with olive oil, conditioner, lice oil or coconut oil. Be sure to not over saturate hair.
- Comb hair to remove all tangles
- When all tangles are out, use Terminator Lice Comb to perform check.
- Hold lice comb parallel to the scalp
- Comb from the bang area to the back of the hair and one side of hair to the other, wipe comb on paper towl and/or dip in bowl with water while running finger nail thru terminator comb to release any findings.
- Make sure to comb behind the ears and nape of neck. For longer hair, clip up back of hair and comb underneath. For thicker hair, divide hair into quads and comb bigger sections of hair.
- Remember to sterilize comb between uses. Boil for 20 minutes or soak in Alcohol.
Be aware that your child may still come in contact with the source of your infestation during the weeks following treatment. Continuing to comb after treatment is an insurance for you and your family that re- infestation will not occur.
