hi guys ive thought hard and long as to whether or not i should ask this as im worried that i will get the piss ripped out of me but what i was wondering was.



being a father of young children in the uk it is a common occurance for children at school to get headlice, (thankfully mine havent so its not a problem)and i was wandering if they were to catch them would the over the counter treatments be ok to use on a grown out ht patient or would the stuff be too harsh.



sorry for the daft question folks its just my daughter had them six months ago and fortunately they were easy to get rid of with full marks solution but it has bugged me ever since as to whether a ht patient could use the stuff.;;D

no daft comments please im not spiderman and im not crawling im just curious, as in the years ive been on the forums ive never seen this asked before lol)(_::

Lol, awesome question. Anyway personally I wouldn't bother. Get a fine (nap) comb and wash the hair over a sink or bath, then use conditioner and comb through. The little critters slide straight off. They either drown or you can crack then with your nail. Oh by the way the teeny weeny little white eggs may hang on in there so you'll need to keep doing it for a while. If you don't the eggs grow into bugs that suck yer blood then lay more eggs and it starts over again....doh! Why do I know so much about this? *nl Peachy

Lol Peachy - why do you know so much????

Thanks for the info.

I can't see it as a problem. Your follicles are the same as your native follicles basically after transplantation.

c;;9 Headlice like hair. HT patients don't have hair, so you're safe Janna. But ofcourse after they have had a procedure.....
