1. Anyone Can Contract Head Lice
No matter your race, gender, height, weight, as long as you have hair, you can get head lice. Head lice are most common among children in elementary school but if an adult makes head-to-head contact with a child who is infected, then the adult can get it as well. Head lice have absolutely nothing to do with cleanliness or hygiene. A less common way to get head lice is by sharing items such as combs or brushes but only if they are used right after the infected person used it because lice can’t survive more than 24 hours off the head. Lice cannot jump or fly, they can only crawl.
2. If Your Child’s Head Starts To Itch From Lice, They May Have Had It For a While
When a child’s head is itchy because of lice, it’s usually an allergic reaction to saliva from lice bites. It often takes three or four weeks for the reaction to kick in and start itching.
3. Regular Head Checks Are A Good Way To Find Lice Early
The sooner you catch head lice, the better. It’s best to treat lice as soon as possible before it gets even more severe (although we can treat lice no matter how severe it is). Quick head checks once a week are a great way to catch lice early on. Make the head checks more regular if there’s an outbreak at your child’s school.
