Sorry, with my zoo, I've been ill myself: and die-off causes me to doubt every thought in my head. I have stopped adding to my website, but it is morgreport.com. There is info on there about the creatures you are fighting, and I have 100% confidence in the info I have published on that site. It is free and I am not selling anything.
(BTW, I believe you can access all of my posts on curezone by going to the bottom of this post and clicking where you see "find and order all messages by maybelle", since I have stopped adding to my website, here is where you will find current info posted.)
In terms of baking soda: understand this: It is completely uniform in consistency...there is nothing in it that would cause it to clump. If it contacts something on your scalp, causing it to clump, it is containing something that it has drawn out of your scalp which = "dandruff." The other dry shampoo you used did the same thing.
The dandruff is BAD....it makes you contagious because EVERYWHERE it falls, there is now ANOTHER dehydrated parasite waiting to be picked up by whomever contacts it. Vacuum your hair if no time to rinse.
The way I know they are on my skin-- the bites, or burning, as you describe it. When I get bit, I know that there is a tiny parasite that has just latched on to my skin....possibly because I was careless with baking soda and let a few particles get away. Rubbing alcohol will stop a new biting invader in short order: rub the spot gently with a tissue saturated in alcohol until the little hard grain is released from your skin, and be sure to capture that grain in the tissue. Anywhere there is a "hair", same treatment should work. You can rub gently, but do not put pressure on it while attempting to remove it. Recall that smashing them will only cause them to break apart which = cloning. Dispose of all such contaminated tissues immediately in ziploc bags.
Another fact: The burning you feel when applying baking soda is NOT actually the sensation of your skin being damaged. The burning sensation is a reaction by the parasite who is being dehydrated by the baking soda (think of wicked witch melting). I realized last year that baking soda, hydrogen peroxide (3% solution) and rubbing alcohol do NOT actually damage our skin when applied topically...when your skin tingles, it is because something ON your skin is being bothered/killed by whatever you are applying. If the thing is killed or removed, the burning stops. True story.
For kids: Keep their fingernails short, their hands clean with hand sanitizer, and their hands OUT of their mouths. The nasty taste of hand sanitizer will do this for you.
As far as other treatments that the children will put up with, I would go with the traditional tried and true baby formulas of Johnson and Johnson....or Burt's Bees if you have the finances. I think the old formulas are proof that we have been dealing with the likes of the morg for a long time....and people stuck with what worked. Baby oil and baby powder are likely the gentlest ways to effectively boost the skin barrier.
