The Costco Connection
Members can find products that treat head
lice at select Costco pharmacies.
rinse lice and nits off the comb under running
water or wipe them off the comb with a tissue,
dropping each tissue into a bag; when you’re
done, tie the bag tightly and toss it out. Soak
the comb in hot water for 10 minutes or store
it in the freezer for 24 hours before reusing it.
Comb daily between the initial and the second
treatment, which occurs seven days after the
first. The adult lice die in the first treatment;
the second application kills any eggs that have
hatched since the first treatment.
Steele adds there’s very little risk of lice
spreading through toys. To be on the safe side,
parents can put toys in a sealed plastic bag for
a week to make sure all of the bugs die.
Let other parents, or the school or daycare, know about the infestation. Keeping
mum means your child can spread them to
playmates and be reinfested later.
