Even though they might now want to admit it, many kids are really excited to be back in school with their friends. All those kids in close contact can have a downside – LICE! Head to head or hair to hair contact is the number one way lice are spread, so with all the selfies and hugging, plus the fact the lice have mutated where they no longer respond to the over the counter products, it’s no wonder the back to school time means lice outbreaks. Your best defenses are to teach kids about personal space and how lice are spread, but also to perform a weekly head check on your child. If you hear rumors of lice in the school or at a recent sleep over, call us right away and have your child come in for a professional head check, before the infestation multiplies though the entire house hold.
