Do you know what to do if you have been around someone with head lice? Most people aren’t lice experts and freakout at even the thought of being near someone with head lice. The bugs aren’t dangerous, but they certainly cause a major itch and nuisance when they infest your hair. Most commonly experienced by children, head lice feed on the blood from the scalp and can rapidly multiply.
If you’ve been around someone with lice, you probably won’t know unless they tell you or you develop lice. So, that’s probably one of the lesser worries you have. Maybe someone told you that the person had lice after the fact. Maybe it’s just gossip, but is that a chance you really want to take? It’s probably a good idea to have someone inspect your head for lice to be safe.
It’s a good time to talk to your kids about lice and their dangers. Teach them not to share combs, brushes, hats, scarves, etc. with other kids and not to throw their coats into piles. Hang up the coat instead. Lice are easily transmitted via these methods. The best prevention method is to avoid risks.
The home is at risk if you invite someone inside who has lice. Make sure you keep people out of the house unless you know them well. Head lice live in the scalp most often but can get on beds, pillows, clothing, pillowcases, etc. and it is a nuisance to rid them from the home.
Remove lice promptly if you have this bug or if your children’s heads are infested. A nit removal comb takes care of dead lice and their eggs after treatment. Other products for lice help prevent the bugs from returning again in the future. If you choose a headlice removal business to assist in this process there is even more assurance that the lice won’t return in the future.
