So I have an itchy scalp.. that seems to be the only side effect that I am really experiencing other than dry lips. It drives me crazy. Even with all the moisturizing shampoos and head and shoulders it just never seems to not bother me.....
This morning during circle time we were sharing what we did over the 4 day weekend (I teach 1st grade) and one of the kids announced that they got to have those bugs in their hair and were bragging that they got to put mayo on their hair. The kids were seriously impressed with that. Then another kid announced that they had the bugs too! Every one thought they were pretty awesome... how cool are bugs? Especially in your hair. Ummm not so much.
So of course I completely flip out and insist on having the whole class checked including myself. Some of the kids were freaked out and so to alleviate their fears I volunteered to have my scalp checked first.. in front of them. I am about done and the nurse thinks she found something... the kids all clap (WTF? Don't they know what lice is??) and I start to sweat but lucky for me it is just dry scalp pieces. Super gross.. but way better than lice.
