Do lice eggs (nits) grow?
I know a somebody who's been dealing with lice for the past half year. She has long and thick hair, but it's been recently thinned and cut short, in hopes of making the process go easier. She's used Nix, CVS, and Liceadex, but they just keep coming back. She has her hair searched three times a day for eggs. There are often small white dots on her scalp that I used to belive are small lice eggs, and they'd grow to be bigger lice eggs. But there are never as many large as there are small, and if the small grow to be large, there'd be more. So do they grow? Or are there still live lice on her head?
Additional Details
Thank you for all the answers, but the question was, "Do nits grow?", not "What should she do to rid herself of the lice?". Although if you can suggest something that she hasn't tried, that would be very apreciated. :)

lice eggs (nits) won't be on the scalp, the nits are on the hair shaft itself. They look like a small white dot, but it won't move easily when you try to remove it like a dandruff flake would.

Those buggers are all over her house, much like flea eggs, that's why she is having such a hard time ridding herself of them. Eggs hatch and the larvae grows and they continue to reproduce.

I had lice before but I don't know if they grow. The eggs might hatch though.

Yes. You need to wash your hair with warm water, like shampoo and conditioner. Vacuum the entire place, and put all combs in a sink wiht warm water. :)

This is a horror story. She needs to clean her couches and chairs with the vacuum and lice killing spray. She needs to wash all sheets, blankets, pillows in house then spray with the spray. She needs to vacuum and spray her carpet once a day as well. She needs to comb through her hair once in the morning and once at night with a fine toothed lice comb that you buy separately from any formula box they are like $5. Anyone else in the house or who is a regular should go through the same procedures if need be.

Lice lay eggs. They hatch and make more lice which lay more eggs. If she is treating for lice and they keep coming back, then she is being exposed to someone else who has them or she's not cleaning her bed or house since lice can be on clothing and furniture when moving from place to place. She needs to clean up.

That poor girl. 6 months is a long time to fight a lice problem.
She needs to make sure she washes her sheets and pillowcases, hats, scarves, and jackets every day because she is reinfecting herself.
She also needs to buy a metal nit comb. The metal combs are more effective at pulling the nits and lice off the hair shaft.
Also make sure it isn't dandruff you are seeing on her scalp, The nits stick to the hair shaft and can't be flicked off. Dandruff can be flicked off with your finger.

No, the eggs do not grow. The size that they are laid is the size that they are. In addition, they are cemented to the hair shaft, at approximately the same distance from the scalp, for each egg. Thus, they are not ever on the scalp, per se. It sounds as if she has a different scalp problem, and not lice.
