Use a lice comb to remove the eggs from the hair. The shampoo makes the eggs not able to stick properly and can then be easily removed. Ive had lice before, this work on me.

Body Lice
Body lice are extremely difficult to eliminate, and they will eventually get to your scalp, where they are extremely difficult to kill. Take extra measures to enhance your immune system, especially if you have a compromised immune system. (Contact Herb Bar in Austin for their supplement)
Herbal remedies exist, try Good Riddance! from the Herb Bar in Austin.
EPSOM SALTS KILLS MOST OF THEM:
use epsom salts baths to soak your body and hair, this will kill most of them. Keep a towel nearby; do not get this in your eyes, though you will want to cleanse your eyebrows with it too. do not rinse the epsom salts from your body, leave the residue on your body, this will help prevent them from living on your skin. Do this twice daily. Dab your fingers in the epsom salt bath and clean your ears with them to leave a residue there, and prevent the lice from coming in there to evade the other epsom salt covered areas. If you do this in your nostrils, you must use a light touch as the mucous membranes there are more sensitive than the ears. Use Licefreee on your hair every other night until the lice there are dead. Use vaseline around your thigh area to trap the lice, and physically remove them with your fingers. Place the picked lice in a cup of water with an emersed paper towel so it will attach to the towel. The cup of water can also include rubbing alcohol, baby oil, or some other product that will prevent the lice from climbing out.
MOP YOUR FLOORS TWICE DAILY OR VACUUM (IF YOU VACUUM, CHANGE THE BAG DAILY). MOP WITH LEFTOVER EPSOM SALT WATER, IF YOU CAN. IF NOT, ENSURE THAT YOUR MOP IS CLEANED WITH THE HOTTEST WATER IMAGINABLE SO THAT YOU CAN KILL THE ONES THAT NOW CLING TO THE MOP, AND THAT WILL COME VISIT YOU when the mop dries.
Of course, the daily change of sheets, bagging cleaned items to keep them separated from others that haven't been washed in especially hot water for TWO concurrent washings, followed by 45 minutes on extremely hot settings in a dryer. (some suggest using commercial dryers because they are hotter).
