A head lice outbreak in your family is the last thing you want to worry about. With school break coming up and kids spending more time with friends, the increase in the number of head lice cases can plague families. It’s important to understand how this happens and what to do when faced with head lice. Here at Fresh Heads Lice Removal, we are dedicated to providing information and offering solutions.
The Warm Weather Increase
A noticeable aspect of lice infestation is that during warmer months, head lice outbreaks spike. Warmer weather gives lice an ecosystem where they are breeding and thriving. Spending more time with friends, family, and playing sports can increase the possibility of an outbreak as well. It is essential to understand how to avoid this unpleasant infestation.
Lice Love Vacation
Taking a vacation, spending the night at a friend’s house, or sharing a bed are all factors that can spread head lice. While the only way to contract lice is through direct contact, it can be easy to overlook specific actions. Adults and children alike should avoid sharing pillows and blankets to reduce the risk of an infestation. To make sure that you do not have head lice, you can come by Fresh Heads Lice Removal for a checkup.
Itching, Scratching Signs
The issue with head lice is that symptoms may not present themselves until around a week after exposure. After being laid, lice eggs need a few days to hatch and begin to feed by biting into your scalp. It may take longer than a week to experience symptoms, but they are hard to ignore:
- Tickling sensation in the hair
- Intense itching from feces, saliva, and bites
- Difficulty sleeping
- Sores caused by scratching
