Can You Go Swimming After Lice Treatment?

Can You Go Swimming After Lice Treatment?

Summertime is a time for relaxation and having fun, and in some situations escaping the heat. Before you go to that pool party you might want to check to see if you have lice, and if you do you might want to wait to jump in that pool. Some chemicals and toxins might help kill lice, but chlorine is not one of them. 

Lice vs Chemicals

Over time, over-the-counter products have become weaker on lice, most likely due to adaptation of the lice. Even chlorine, which is somewhat acidic, does very little harm to lice nowadays. Some of the chemicals in these products that could kill these lice and nits can be extremely harmful to your hair and scalp. Also, many of these products might be able to kill lice, but not the eggs they lay. So after a few days, the problem is still there, and if you are to use the same methods again then you are in a terrible cycle. 

Swimming After Lice Treatments

If you are using some kind of home or over-the-counter method then enjoying a day on the water after the treatment might become an issue. It is recommended that you wait 48 hours after treatment to enjoy the pool or any other kind of water. This is because over-the-counter products have become less effective over time, and the chlorine affects the other chemicals that you might have put on your head. The chemicals you might be putting on your head could cause a bad reaction with chlorine.
