Unhappy lice problem, need help

I've discovered the other day that my mouse family has lice. I've been to the vet and was given a powder to put on the mom. I'm to put it on her once a week for 4 weeks. When I apply it, I'm to keep her away from the babies for an hour. Have you ever tried to powder an active mouse? I ended up getting powdered too. :LOL:
I'm concered that Speedy (the mom) is grooming the powder off. I can't stop a mouses normal instinct to clean itself. I've seen the babies trying to scratch. I'm concered that once their nails get a little sharper, that they may do damage to themselves over scratching. Is there anything else I can do?
