    Hi, I have recently caught head lice and I hate them! I wouldn't advise to use chemicals because they are expensive and as you have said, the headlice get used to them. Simply wet your hair and put conditioner in it and run a nit comb through it. Hope this has helped xox

Good luck!You can sort them out! your not stuck with them! xxx

    UPDATE!! Tomorrow will be 2 weeks since we started using dermallay and I have only good things to say about it! I would say 80% of them have gone away at this point, and the rest have scabs on them that look like their about to fall off any day now! My son's face is completely clear and there are thankfully no marks or scars!! Wish I had bought this one first instead of trying ACV, definitely worth the money and time it takes to ship to the UK!!

    I used tea tree oil either in the bath or directly dabbed on spots then a savlon iodine spray the spots soon scabbed over and disappeared within a week. You need to use both the tea tree does not work on its own. Keeping the area clean is very important but I made my daughter bathe every other day to stop the area and scabs getting soggy and they healed more quickly.

    I used the tea tree oil and savlon spray on my daughter who had mc spreading across her tummy and one of her thighs. After 2 weeks it has completely cleared up. The 'spots' dried up and fell off. Many thanks for the tip, invaluable after the doctor told me there was no treatment to give.

    Hello, my son who is 10 months as MC. I am going to try the tea tree and savlon. Did you just spray the area quite liberally? he has a cluster. Really hope it works.

    Sadly, it is not true that everything works better when circumcised. Over time, as the head rubs against the underwear, it dries out, scabs over, and loses sensitivity. This makes sex simply the satisfaction of an urge, not the refined sensual experience it is supposed to be. Multiple male orgasms are much easier in men who have not been circumcised. Women who have circumcised partners complain of pain and dryness during sex much more, and are much more likely to refuse sex altogether. The foreskin holds in lubrication, preventing this pain and dryness that is so common.

    my daughter is almost 14 and started with what looks like eczema about 2 years ago. doctor gave her emolient creams & anti histimines. it clears slightly on face then returns with a vengeance & looks like bad sunburn on eyelids & cheeks. Joints on arms & neck affected, sometimes scabs on head, lips. Really uncomfortably & psychological at that age & its not improving. Rasp blood test negative so doc says shes not allergic to anything? we stopped her swimming at school as that makes it unbearable. Any ideas would be great as lost confidence in our doctor.
