The problem might not be on his head, with lice you have to bleach everything!

Head lice live for about three weeks.
The female lays up to six eggs a day,
which she attaches to the hair near the
scalp. The eggs hatch about eight days
later, days after hatching the new lice start to lay eggs - and the cycle begins again. In a person with an infestation, there
are usually about 10 adult head lice on
the scalp at any one time, although
there may be many more in some cases.

I am sorry to hear that. My children came home from school with them as well. You need to check with the school if other children still have it or not. And make sure no one else in your famly has it. Also dont share your brush at this time. There is a kit that will dected when you find a egg in there head. Make sure you look very well. I am not sure how many. I am not being mean but I dont think that how many is the issue here. Please take this serious. You may have to toss out your brushes and wash all bedding. Once again make sure other people around your child are not still caarrying it. Even check your self it your around this child. Very time worthy job to do, but dont let it get out of hand. The RId solution is very easy to use. You might even have to use it a couple of times. GOOD LUCK

the small ones lay more eggs than the large ones. lay up to 100 eggs in 30 days

Lice eggs on the hair very close to the scalp are the primary sign of an active infestation. A female can lay up to 50-150 eggs in its life, but it can lay up to 100 eggs in 30 days.
Please see the web pages for more details on Head louse.
