Pubic Lice
Dear Dr

I am a 26 year old man and recently came down with pubic lice. I have tried to wash with the shampoo called " No Lice"  and even though that did decrease the number of lice and eggs significantly, they are still present. I have washed 3 days with this shampoo and even changed beds!

In what other way could I treat them (pref. non prescription drugs)?

Dear Lice
Try Paraspray - you can buy at pharmacy. Remember that all clothes and bedding should be treated by washing it with very hot water
