Please be reminded that head lice can happen to anyone, anywhere. While lice remain alive on the infected person's clothing or hair until they have been destroyed, it is communicable. As a reminder, several treatment's are often necessary to cleanse the hair. Please read instructions carefully, unless nits are removed, they can re-infest.
Washing all personal clothing with hot soapy water and a disinfectant should destroy any lice. Remember to check the seams of clothing. The use of a dryer (high heat for at least 20 minutes) will also facilitate destruction of adult lice and nits. If clothing is not washable it should be dry cleaned.
While observing your child, please be aware that lice are small brown bugs, nits or eggs are white, filmy and stick to the hair and must be combed or slid off the hair strand by hand. There is no reason to panic; however there is a need to be aware of the possibility of pediculosis. Your daily inspection of your child's hair will help ensure quick action if needed.
