my dad used kerosene on us when news spread of lice at elementary school.
me and 2 brothers were kneeling outside of the tub with our heads bent forward as dad poured kerosene over our heads. we were told to cover our eyes as he massaged it in.

Mark Ratner: DNRTFA...did she get rid of the lice?


We know she did for sure on at least on 60% of the child's body.

F*cking awful parenting. So sorry the kid started out life like that.

I come from a countrified family and I've never heard of this treatment.

Wow, that's really sad. And dumb. But sad for the little girl.
 
2013-08-01 01:09:49 AM  
Well, in her defence, before it became a source of portable energy for vehicles, gasoline was sold as a treatment for lice.
When Mrs. Benz made the first recorded road trip in her husband's newly-invented automobile, she would have stopped at pharmacies to fill-up.

Sounds like the method of getting rid of crabs that I shared in a previous Fark thread.

First you will need lighter fluid, matches, a razor and an ice pick.

First you shave one side of your pubic region.
Next you douse the unshaven side of your pubic region with lighter fluid.
Now you light the unshaven side on fire and once the crabs run from the fire on the unshaven side to the shaven side you stab them one by one with the ice pick.

When I was 11 I went to a church camp for a week. The very first day, as a prank me and a friend put soap on our hands and high-fived a few guys. One of the guys, a large football player a foot taller and a few years older, didn't take a liking to that and shoved me face-first into a concrete wall. My left cheek swelled up into a huge contusion and remained that way for the entire week. I had no shortage of awkward stares, ogling and giggling directed at me that week by strangers my own age. Children can be cruel..I can only imagine what this girl will go through for the rest of her life. Horrible.

The little girl had second and third degree burns over 60% of her body, she'll be spending the rest of her life dealing with painful surgeries and the emotional damage of being disfigured.

I think life in front of a firing squad would be appropriate for the mother. Life in jail is too good for her.

If anyone cares to know, an overnight treatment with smearing mayonaisse and wearing a shower cap works wonders.

Agreed. She should have to volunteer to help severe burn patients for the rest of her life.

Head lice are a b#tch to get rid of, but there are safer, less flammable ways of doing it. My daughter spent a horrible 4th grade fighting them. Same kid kept bringing them back.

Those pharmacists must've thought her family had lice ten layers deep when she'd buy 5 gallons in one shot.

my dad used kerosene on us when news spread of lice at elementary school.


Kerosine is the go-to flammable for pest removal.  Mom had bed bugs as a child and they soaked the mattresses with kerosine as part of the treatment.  I assume she used gasoline because its easier to find.

The key difference between you and the mother of the year was your dad had enough common sense to keep you away from heat sources.  If he's still alive, he deserves to be applauded for his common sense.

Got crabs. Shaved it bald after my second "re-infection." Farking things. I'm quite hairy so the itch of razor stubble was worse than the crab bit, but I'm not hosting more organisms than I'm naturally supposed to. And no, there was no crotch touching that gave me crabs, just an unfortunate evening in a bed someone else had slept in a few times.

Nothing like going to the doc, prying one of those damn things out and saying, "WTF do I do about these d@mn things?" then getting a prescription for nix on the nads. It magically went over the counter slightly before embarrassing the hell out of myself to a doc and a pharmacist. Just made me even more pissed off at my chicken shiat wife for forcing me to find "our" treatment.

In the end it was shaving bald and nix. Fark the little comb.

OTC lice treatment is not cheap, especially if you need multiple treatments.  Our daughter came into our custody with a severe infestation that took 3 treatments to completely remove (along with 20+ hours of combing).  For a low income family, you're looking at roughly $60 in OTC treatment, plus running to the laundromat numerous times (if you don't have a washer/dryer).

That said, gasoline is not a good alternative.  You'd think that would be obvious.  Vaseline will smother them and is fairly safe- you just need to let it sit for a while (which is hard, depending on the child's age).

Gross little critters..... yuck.

Our kids got lice in early elementary school. The best treatment,which works,is to buy cheap hair conditioner and completely soak the hair with it.After about 30 mins the lice seem to dislodge and go to the surface. Comb thoroughly,rinse and repeat for the next couple of days. It's cheap and the bugs will be gone within 2-3 days depending on the degree of infestation.

I remember a story about kerosene lice treatment in our school "reader" (what we called the book for the "reading" section of the day).  That required several levels of explanation to our [relatively] well off class of white kids.  First the teacher had to explain lice.  Then she had to explain why mom didn't just take the kid to the doctor.  Which required explaining that there was a time when MediCal and similar social welfare programs didn't exist.  If I remember right, that story got axed from the curriculum because it took way too long to put the story in context for our demographic.

This.

I don't know why, but sometimes it seems like men have more common sense when it comes to flammable stuff.  Maybe it's because we deal with them more.

The distaffbopper once brought the lawnmower inside the basement (we have a walk-out basement) because it was starting to rain and she didn't want to have to put it under the tarp we used to protect it while it was still hot, which is sensible enough.

So what did she do?

She parked it right next to the hot water heater.  The *NATURAL GAS* hot water heater.  You know, the one with the little pilot light that's always lit?  When I found out, I moved the mower to the opposite side of the basement, and made sure a couple windows were open.

She had no idea that gasoline created flammable vapors that could be ignited by the open flame of the pilot light on the water heater.  Hell, she didn't even know the water heater *HAD* a pilot light.
