Tips for Avoiding Lice This Spring
Adults are much less likely than children to contract head lice, so we’re going to focus on lice prevention for kids in today’s post. Your child probably enjoys playing with others during recess at school, and they may even participate in after-school activities or sports in which they could come into contact with other children. You should never discourage your child from playing with others, but you should let them know that lice can easily be transferred from one person to another via head-to-head contact.
On a related note, speak with your child and make sure that they know not to share hats, helmets, hair ties, or any other accessories that come into contact with the scalp. Your child might play football or another sport that requires them to wear headgear, and you should make sure that they know not to trade or accidentally pick up another child’s headgear. This point is particularly important if your child’s school or camp recently has recently had, or is currently dealing with, a lice outbreak.
Remember That Lice Don’t Take Vacations
Lice are probably the last thing on your mind if you’re planning a spring getaway. Between making plans, packing, and getting excited as your vacation approaches, it’s easy to forget that lice thrive in close-quarters situations. Whether you’re planning a spring break trip to a beachside resort, visiting family in another state, or camping for several days, come to Lice Treatment Solutions for an inspection before the trip if your child’s school has recently had a lice outbreak. We’ll provide you with fast and affordable treatment so that you can enjoy a lice-free vacation with your family!
Watch for the Most Common Symptoms of Lice
When it comes to health-related matters, there’s no treatment more effective than prevention. If you catch wind of a lice infestation at your child’s school, or if someone else in your life has recently been diagnosed with lice, be sure to look out for the following three symptoms:
- Itchy scalp: While dry skin and dandruff can cause an itchy scalp, severe itching along with the symptoms listed below is a strong indication of lice.
- Red bumps: Lice bites are small, but they do cause inflammation. Keep an eye out for small red bumps on the scalp, neck, and shoulders.
- Tickling sensation: Lice are tiny parasites, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you won’t feel them crawling on your scalp.
