I have no idea about the lice/mikvah....never thought about that before, although I imagine thate that if you you use the lice comb and get the nits out ...your'e good to go
btw, neem oil is the best long term treatment/prevention for lice....totally disrupts their reproductive cycle as in they cannot multiply....no more lice!!!!!
I have personally used it one year after spending the summer in Israel and besides dh an done ds everyone else had them....
I added neem oil to every shampoo and conditioner bottle in the house for a while after too. for ds who was the most infested we lathered his head with neem conditioner after a good combing and sent him to bed with it on, voila he was lice/nit free after. btw,neem is very safe and is even used on infants for excema etc;
I always laugh when I think of names.....I like unusuall or just more modern names and dh loves very traditional conservative ones.....some of my kids have names I never dreamed I'd name any child of mine....and yet these names are so perfectly suited to them and I absolutely love them now!!!!
Each time one of our kids were born we really felt that they help to choose the name and there names had such meaning for us at the time of their birth, like being born with the first sun rays shining through the blinds (Keren) or being the "ben zekunim" and acher and mwntioned in that weeks parsha etc; like Yosef
it's really cool!!!
btw, Rivka, one of my ds had hives for 3 days about a month ago and the dr. said that it was a virus and it really disapeared as suddenly as it appeared...
after I had racked my brains to figure out what it was....
I have since found out that it is more common than not.
hope she is doing better.
btw, there are some really infornative threads here on mdc in the allergies forumm on opening up detox pathways, nutrition,supplements for helping allergies etc;
