Try Nitagon which is available from your pharmacy. This whill help for both the lice and the nits. FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS CAREFULLY. If your daughter is younger than 5 it should best be avaoided. Another option would be Lyclear,
Your pharmacy will also stock some natural products - The efficacy of these are not nearly in the same league as the chemical products, but it is safer to use.
I further recommend using a tea trea oil shampoo afterwards - This will prevent re-infection.
