PLEASE PLEASE TELL ME THIS IS NOT A LOUSE

I've been checking DDs head like crazy and found this in her hair. I cannot get a closer picture but I am thinking its too small to be a louse. This is all I have found

Lice no doubt! Sorry get washing! Check her hair well daily for two weeks. I would treat with lice MD or something like that. Good metal nit comb to.

Oh yeah that seems to be adult size. If you treat her and see no more in 2 weeks of checking it could be just that one. I have gotten lucky once with DD.

My mom freaked when we got them once. She soaked our heads in raw apple cider vinegar. Covered that with a shower cap for about 4 hours and then washed us with shampoo that had been spiked with tea tree oil (and let that sit for awhile too!)

Yup. Sadly I know lice all to well. Thankfully been lice free for a while but we take extra precautions. If she goes to girls inc..place she gets it here, her hair is up and hair sprayed. I promptly check her when we get home.
