Prevention is the best medicine for any head lice situation. (NAPS)
(NAPSI)—Head lice love every season and anyone with a head of hair.
They’re not going anywhere. If you find lice, treat with a product that
kills both lice and eggs to avoid needing to retreat seven days later for
hatching eggs that combing may have missed. Fortunately, if you want to
reduce your head lice infestation odds, you can be proactive when it comes to
preventing head lice.
Whether the family is heading off to school, spring break or to camp, have
a lice prevention plan in place. You want your kids to make friends but not
with lice. The most common way children spread head lice is from direct
head-to-head contact at social gatherings or school. Not only are nits and
lice so small that they can be easily missed, but it also takes four to six
weeks for itching symptoms to start.

One” to bring lice home.
1. Perform head lice checks before
and after your child is in head-to-head contact with other children.

to camp and conduct weekly head checks throughout the year. Many camps and
boarding schools do head lice checks when your child arrives; you don’t
want that to be when you find out you have a problem.
2. Reduce risk by putting long hair
in a braid, bun or ponytail. The longer the hair, the greater the risk
for contracting lice from head-to-head contact.
3. Be proactive. Once a child
returning from spring break or camp is diagnosed with a lice infestation, family
and friends have already been exposed for weeks as the infestation was
growing. That’s how lice outbreaks multiply.
If you’ve been exposed, switch to a daily shampoo designed to kill
undetected lice with each wash so any potentially contracted lice don’t
build into an infestation, and use a daily repellent spray to keep lice from
