Lice Prevention Tips

Don’t Share Hats

While the fall and winter in Houston aren’t exactly ideal for beanies and other cold-weather headwear, your child may still find themselves wanting to wear their favorite hat to school. Maybe they want to support the Houston Rockets with a brand new hat, or maybe they have an older Dallas Cowboys cap. No matter what your child chooses to wear to school, make sure they know that sharing hats is off limits. Lice are commonly transmitted from objects to hair, and hat sharing is one of the most common ways lice are spread.

Keep Belongings Separate 

Sharing hats, combs, and other head-related items are all fairly obvious ways that lice are transmitted from person to person, but lice can also spread from objects like backpacks and blankets. While children in junior high and high school probably have their own lockers, children in elementary school often store their backpacks together in cubbies or in a corner of the room. Speak with your child’s teacher about how belongings are stored in the classroom, as they may not be aware that lice can spread through personal belongings.

Play Carefully

Hats and belongings spread lice indirectly, but head-to-head contact puts your child at risk of direct exposure to lice. Young children — especially those in daycare — often touch heads and come into close contact with one another. It’s impossible to eliminate this risk entirely, and you certainly don’t want to limit your child’s social interactions at school. In light of this fact, you should remain vigilant and look for signs of head lice as the school year goes on. We have a great resource about the symptoms of head lice on our website, and you can always call our lice treatment center if you need further guidance.

It’s always better to err on the side of caution, especially if a lice infestation could prevent your child from attending school.
