I had a message from my sons school today telling me I needed to pick him up because he had nits. I went to pick him up and we briefly discussed it but there were a lot of kids around so I didn't want to have her go into detail or show me where they were. After we left I checked his head and didn't see anything so I took him to my moms and she didn't see anything. I called to tell her I could not find anything but she was adamant that she saw them under a magnifier, felt them and counted 4 eggs and stopped looking I went to Rite Aid and picked up a comb and all I was getting was dandruff. I had a doctors appointment that happened to be in the same area as pediatrics. I stopped by and explained the situation and they checked him. TWO nurses checked his head and all they could see was dandruff as well.



If this was to ever happen again I would make her show me. I had to leave work four hours early for this crap!

I'm the official lice checker at my school haha. When i find nits they are definitely diff than dandruff haha. And nits are dead eggs so idk why she'd send him home for that. Eggs pop between your finger nails. And when I find live live or nuts I pull one off, put it between two pieces of tape, and give it to the parent. That way they know what it looks like and have proof I found it.

I checked what looked like possible nits and they didn't pop. I have seen my fair share of nits and lice and I didn't see any of that in my sons hair. I am just glad I had him triple checked and was cleared.

Some people have no right to check for lice. Most people don't even know what they're looking for. They're hard to see!!! You really have to know what you're lookin for.
