Summer Lice Concerns
Even with the school year finished, your children risk exposure to lice over the summer. Head lice infestation is an issue whether your kids will be visiting cousins, taking classes at a local community center, or spending time at summer camp. When kids play together, lice can spread the same as they do when they interact in school.
Your kids have fun spending time with their peers, and summer offers memorable experiences they’ll cherish for years to come. But, you don’t want any of those memories to involve lice. If your child has contracted a case of summertime lice, ending the infestation becomes a top priority.
So, we’ve got the information you need to deal with an infestation and help your kid get back to enjoying the summer. Here are some steps to keep in mind to prevent outbreaks in the first place or to stop them if your child starts itching:
Key Tips About Head Lice
- First, keep in mind that lice are not as threatening as people often think. They do not spread disease and a child contracting lice does not indicate bad parenting or a messy home. Kids get lice from other kids, not from any wrongdoing by their parents.
- Talk with your children about head lice and how to prevent infestation when a peer has a case of them. Most of the time, infestations occur from direct head-to-head contact. So, it helps to prevent lice problems if you instruct your kids to avoid such contact. Instruct your kids to be especially careful with children who are known to have lice.
- It helps to check your child’s hair when they return from a gathering with other children. If you have a lice comb at home, you can do a thorough comb-through and ensure that they are lice-free.
