Thank u so much for the prompt responses moms! I will try the camphor and oil trick.. how do I use the camphor? As in should I grind it and mix with oil or any other method? I really hope it's not lice eggs though !! I thought shampooing more often will make her hair/scalp dry so wasn't doing it frequently.. let's see will ask her paediatrician too.. Thanks again!

Hi Abha, it may be lice or due to sweating. wash her hair daily or alternate day as its very hot. If she is scratching continuously then please consult the doctor.

hi Aabha! it could be nits (lice eggs) which one has to carefully prune by manually picking, one by one. one has to really have a good eyesight to find these and Combs are not effective in pulling these out. also u could use medicated shampoos or home based treatments to get rid of these. I have no idea about how effective these are but u can still give it a try. fellow parents please give some suggestions on home based treatment for lice. Thanks!

hi worried mothers if v dont wash shampoo properly this happens and dnt alow her scalp to b dry because dry scalp also irritates due to dead skin cells. if you think problem is due to lice mix camphor in castor oil and apply her scalp rest for an hour and then take her for shower. if finds useful please follow.
