Head lice are a common nuisance. Researchers estimate over 12 million individual cases of head lice each year throughout the United States. Many of these cases are children. Kids do not have the same inhibitions as adults. They share their favorite hats or scarves and play with other children too closely on the playground, which in turn spreads head lice relatively quickly. When an infestation arrives, we as parents work hard to prevent the spread of head lice.
Useful Steps to Prevent and Control Head Lice
When it comes to preventing and controlling a head lice outbreak, we recommend the following steps:
- Avoid head-to-head contact: Kids are kids, and telling them to avoid head-to-head contact with other children may not be met with much agreement. Still, tell them anyway. Head lice cannot fly, hop, or jump; they transmit via direct contact.
- Avoid sharing hair products: Tell your children not to share their combs, brushes, bandanas, hair bands, or towels – anything that would go on their head.
- Act wisely: If lice enter your home, act prudently. Extreme cleaning does not help. Washing your pillowcases, on the other hand, is useful. Spending time and money on housecleaning is a waste and not necessary.
The most efficient method to control and prevent the further spread of head lice is to seek prompt treatment from a professional. You will want to undergo a thorough comb-out, followed by non-toxic treatment solutions.
A 3-step treatment method will ensure lice are gone. One in-office treatment will be accompanied by at-home follow up steps. It’s crucial to follow all directions from your treatment specialist.
