Head lice is an inconvenient problem that can affect everyone specifically school-aged children. Because these young children interact so closely with one another, one child with head lice that comes in close head-to-head contact with others could leave their friends with the same issue, bringing rise to a lice infestation!
What to Do If You Suspect Your Child Has Head Lice
If you have a child that has caught head lice from someone at school, don’t worry! Luckily, lice don’t spread all that easily and there are measures you can take to prevent other people in your home from becoming infested as well. Keep reading as we shed some light on the precautions you can take until the infestation is cleared after head lice treatment.
1 – Take Early Action
Parents who hear about a lice problem spreading in their child’s school may want to take early action to prevent the spread from happening in their own home. One of the best ways that residents of Jacksonville, Orlando, and Savannah can do this is by getting a lice Protection Plan offered by Fresh Heads Lice Removal. All for one price, this ensures your child and any other family members on the plan receive a monthly head check and, if needed, treatment.
2 – Talk to Your Child
It’s important to sit down and talk to your child about their head lice. Inform them about the measures you’re going to take and make it clear that they can contribute to the prevention of spreading lice by avoiding head-to-head contact. If they’ve been confirmed to have lice and will be undergoing treatment, it’s important that you help them understand what this treatment will entail. Fortunately, comb-outs and dry heat treatment options such as our signature AirAllé are painless, fast, and convenient.
How to Lower Your Odds of Getting Infested with Lice
There’s really only one step to keep from getting infested with lice and it’s avoiding head-to-head contact. If anyone in your household or in your child’s class has head lice, make sure no one comes in close contact until they have been confirmed lice-free!
Work with a Professional
If you’ve heard that there’s a lice outbreak at your child’s school, you may be able to take action before the situation escalates, especially in your own home. Avoiding head-to-head contact with any affected individuals will greatly decrease your chances of getting lice.
If someone in your household is suspected to have lice, be sure to have a plan in place. It’s best to seek professional treatment such as a comb-out or, even better, find a specialist near you that offers AirAllé treatment which is non-toxic and involves the application of warm, dry hair to kill all nits and lice.
