Would you send your child away for the long weekend with a friend that was just treated for lice 2 days ago? (1st treatment, she still needs to do the 2nd treatment next week)?

Nope! I am pretty sure most will be gone after first treatment- but the reason for the second is that if there were eggs that survived round 1 you get them with round 2. It depends how quickly after the eggs hatched that they started treatment.

from the internet

"The nits hatch within 7 to 10 days. After hatching they take 8 to 9 days to become adults at which time the female louse starts laying more eggs and the cycle repeats itself"

Heck to the no. My dd has had lice twice and it is PURE TORTURE. Anyway you should be nit picking and not doing a second treatment.

Now you may need to do a second treatment but if you are not diligent with nit picking you will get a reinfestation.

For that matter, run, get yourself a lice comb and comb your dd's hair DAILY with it. I use the "LiceMeister" and it is fantastic.

Blah...Shudder....Ick....scratches head....

No. First, it's not fair to the other family.

Second, even though I know it's not right, there can be a stigma around lice. It can be embarrassing to the child and/or the family.

Okay, just wanted confirmation that I'm not overreacting by keeping DD home now. It was supposed to be several girls going away for the girl's birthday.

When the mom told me, she kept trying to assure me that it would be okay to stick to the plans, they treated their DD, cleaned the house,( they're going to another house for the weekend)bought some kind of lice repelling shampoo (not the pesticide treatment stuff) that the girls could all use over the weekend etc, etc. but would leave the decision up to us.

It just didn't sit well with me and I told her DD wasn't going because I just didn't want to take that chance and she seemed to get mad at me I don't know what the other parents have decided.

You are definitely not overreacting! I do feel bad for the birthday girl, but maybe her parents should just reschedule

Yikes, I'm itchy just thinking about it!

I might. It depends on how close I was to the mother and how careful I thought she would be. Lice are mostly spread through head to head contact, they don't fly. I think she would be less likely to pick up lice from this girl that she would on a random school day with classmates unaware of their infestation.

If she spends a lot of time with this girl (before her mom found the lice), I would check your daughter carefully. She may already be affected.

Lice are gross and annoying, but not fatal. I give the mom great credit for being honest with you about the whole thing.

There always has to be one dissenting vote

I agree and it depends on the ages of the girl. If I were the mom in question, I would have just re-scheduled and solved the whole problem. I would not want to be responsible for potentially passing it around.

My oldest got them from daycare many years ago and while it was a huge pain, the rest of our family and her BFF never got them.

A lot would depend on sleeping conditions and the types of activities the girls would be doing. I would want the girls to be aware though because you can't police them all the time and you don't want them doing each other's hair over the weekend or sharing brushes, hats, etc.

I don't blame you for not sending her though. They are not fun to deal with!
