Make sure you see live lice along with nits. Use of nix shampoo followed by combing with thin spaced comb will remove the lice, however, the nits will remain attached to hair shaft. Repeat the process after one week. The whole family has to be treated at the same time. The clothes along with bedding has to be washed in hot, hot water. There are other options also if this does not work. READ MORE
The first thing is to hydrate the child by giving lots of water, then treat if there is constipation.Tylenol can be given if the pain is severe, but the most important thing is to get a urine test for analysis and urine culture and drug specificity, and, depending on results, treated further with appropriate antibiotic if needed.

Ear fungus is a very common cause of outer ear infection, also called swimmers ear, by swimming in dirty water. It causes intense pain.
