That same thing happened in Dallas several years ago.

I went through the lice thing with the boys for about three months once. William kept getting them at Kindergarten. I never thought of resorting to that, though. I knew parents who were using Zodiac dog shampoo, though.

That is a very sad story.. :(


But speaking of MM I am almost to the desperate stage that if I don't get to a stylist soon I may have to try jello or kool aid.. I wonder how purple will look :???: :p

I can see why this poor girl can be nominated for the Darwin Awards, but I can't help but think that maybe the AMA and the EPA shouldn't at least get a nomination for the Golden Pork Award with their successful efforts in outlawing Lindane. Lindane is the best treatment for lice and up until a few years ago it could be purchased for about $40/gal. Now, you can only get it through a costly doctor's visit and then and only then are you allowed to purchase this treatment for a mere cost of $100/ounce ($12,800/gal) I just hope the AMA doesn't get their sights set on gasoline.

she should've just saved herself the trouble and shaved her head to begin with.
