Last week's article on head lice sparked a range of other suggestions to rid our children's hair of these horrid visitors.
One reader suggested a product called Delacet, a completely natural product that kills the lice and their eggs, so presumably no combing is required afterwards. It's been tested by magazines such as Woman's Own and Family Circle, says our reader, and even by our own, sadly departed, Natural Parent, so it must be all right then.
Another reader shares with us the recommendation of Dr John Dillon, a GP in Castlerea. Dr Dillon suggests a herbal product called Antelice, a combination of Western and Chinese herbs.
