no zakham on the head?
if not, then apply lotrix lotion on head every wednesday night, and wash off with shampoo in morning. apply conditioner and comb the lice and nits out with fine toothed lice comb.
do this for 4 weeks.
and take tablet zyrtec every night for 20 nights.

She is a breastfeeding mom of two month old. So would it be fine for the baby to sleep with mother while the lotion on her hair? Hair should be covered after applying and what should be the amount of application.

Any scabicidal lotion is fine, you can ask the local pharmacy for a scabicidal lotion.
Tab zyrtec is safe to take.
Just enough amount to apply on the scalp.

Need proper regimen of treatment with antilice shampoo. Treatment of
contacts is also required as u might be getting reinfested after treatment.
