What to do about head lice?
Hello, this months post will be about Head lice. We will include some basic information on Head lice and how it can be treated. Head lice are generally spread via head to head contact as they cannot swim, fly or jump. The simply climb from a infected head to another. All types of hair can be affected and it has nothing to do with how clean the hair is. Head lice can only affect humans so it cannot be spread to animals. Head lice will often cause a person to itch which is a result of the person being allergic to the lice as they suck blood. It is important to know that some children may not be allergic, therefore they will not itch the scalp so they need to be checked. In addition it can take up to three months for the child to start itching the scalp. To detect a active head lice infestation, a live louse must be caught, A method called detection combing should be used. The steps are: Wash your child's hair with ordinary shampoo and apply conditioner. Do not dry the hair. Use a wide tooth comb to remove any tangles. Switch to a louse detection comb making sure the teeth of the comb slot into the hair at the roots with bevel edge of the teeth lightly touching the scalp. Draw the comb down to the ends of the hair with every stroke. Remove lice by wiping or rinsing the comb. Work methodically so the whole head is combed through, this takes about 15 minutes. Rinse out the conditioner and repeat the procedure in the wet hair. Head lice should only be treated when a live louse has been detected. All family members and friends who have been in close contact with the infected child should be treated. Sprays and lotions designed to kill head lice can be used they need to be applied correctly and thoroughly. Our pharmacist can give you advice on which product is best to use for your child.
