I meant that since the OP seems to be from a culture in which having lice is considered something highly unusual that must be swiftly dealt with, judging her from the perspective of someone living in a culture in which it's thought of as something that is just going to happen from time to time and it's not a big deal isn't totally relevant.
My son got lice a few weeks ago and i pretty much expected it to happen. there was an outbreak. i checked his head daily, dealt with it, its gone.
i did freak out because he had only been in school two weeks and got it, but the lice thing..eh no big deal.
whereas my british hubby freaked out. he was disgusted, etc.
i did tell people, hey , my son has lice lets not play etc, even though i knew he had been treated and stuff, i didnt mind telling people.
youre right, our culture thinks our crap dont stink and when it does they bury their head in the toilet.
