I treated my daughter about a month ago and have checked her consistently since then because I am so paranoid. She found this last night, and I am pretty sure that it’s a head louse. I searched her head and found NOTHING – no nits, no other bugs. I am going to treat her again anyway, but I wanted to be certain that I am right because it is driving me INSANE.

Dear Erica,
You are wise to retreat your daughter.  This is in fact a Human Louse.  Your previous treatment may have worked, but if your daughter is in contact with an infested individual at school or at play, she was probably subject to a newly introduced Louse.
