Wet combing best to rid head lice

Fine combing of wet hair is far more effective than pharmacy-bought chemical lotions for eliminating head lice, say researchers.

Head lice have developed resistance to common over the counter products.

The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine research is published in the British Medical Journal.
