HEAD LICE
Many head lice infections cause no symptoms, probably less than half cause itch. So it’s important for you to examine your child’s hair. The easiest way to do this is to apply conditioner to wet hair and comb with a fine tooth lice comb then wipe the conditioner from the comb onto a tissue and look for lice or eggs, they stand out quite clearly this way. Should you find lice or eggs, your child should be treated. This is also an ideal way to check your own hair as you can do it yourself. If you find head lice DON”T PANIC, most families get head lice at some stage of their children’s school life. It’s no big deal. The school and pharmacy stock products recommended for the treatment of head lice.
What about bedding? Much confusion surrounds this issue! As lice cannot live off scalp for more than 24 hours, carers should not go to great lengths to treat bedding or the environment. So drastic is the dehydration of a louse that after 12 hours away from the scalp it cannot resume feeding. Simply denying lice the food they require (human blood) is sufficient to kill lice.
