Oh gosh I am sorry you have to deal with this. It's a HUGE pain but you can't just use the shampoo.. you need to gather up all your bedding, and where your cousin slept and wash it ALL. Adding some pine sol or other cleanser to the wash will help kill anything in them. You also need to go to the store and get some fabric spray made for killing lice and spray the couch, any chairs she sat in... the rugs.. *everything*. While you are doing this use the shampoo again.. then your mom needs to get a nit comb and comb all the eggs out of your hair. (you may have to do this whole procedure a few times over the course of a couple week because these things are HARD to get rid of) Just keep at it

Go to the local drug store and buy the kit, it comes with the chemicals and the comb.

Sevin dust 5% works well and is not expensive. You will still need a nit comb afterwards.

I had lice when I was in 1st grade and I remember my parents putting mayonnaise in my hair and then I had to sleep with a shower cap on... 'from what I remember it worked. Now as for your stuff put them in big plastic garbage bags and should suffocate the lice. I think I also remember my parents putting tons of stuff through the washing machine and dryer trying to kill them off. Good luck. It's a pain I know.
