Hi there ...
Benadryl is antihistamine and is used to overcome allergy .
As far as head lice is concerned this is not indicated to control itching secondary to lice .
She may need shampoo containing Permethrin that will kill lice and Ovide is a prescription medicine used to apply over head to kill lice and control itching .
I will suggest you to ask her dr to prescribe such drugs .
Good luck .
Please leave positive feedback for me .
Respected customer ...

Benadryl is not indicated under one year child , so please don't give him again Benadryl at any dose before one year ( 48 weeks ) .
