Learning what you can do and what not to do can be tricky in the head lice world, especially if this is your child’s first time getting lice. The number one thing we recommend to you is to not panic. We know this has completely turned your life upside down and now you don’t even know where to begin. Lucky for you, we’ve got some tips to help you navigate during this time.
Ways To Avoid Lice
There are precautions you can take to avoid getting lice. First and foremost, head lice are only spread through head-to-head contact. Regular checks at schools and at home are always a great first step to help catch lice and stop the spread. It is not very likely that lice will spread by way of inanimate objects but it is not impossible. Below are some precautionary measures you and your family can take to avoid lice:
- Avoid head-to-head contact
- Do not share hair accessories
- Do not lie on bedding or couches that have recently been in contact with someone who has lice
- Wash your clothes and bedding frequently
- If someone you know has lice, wash all clothes and bedding on the highest heat setting
What To Do If You Get Head lice
You or your child has lice, and you’re not sure what to do next. The very first thing you should do is to isolate your child and let others know who have come into contact with them. Next, you’ll want to wash all bedding and clothes in the highest heat setting in the washer and dryer. Then, you’ll want to contact Lice Clinics of America in Greenville, SC to make your one-time-only appointment to completely cure your child of head lice. You will also want to check the other members of the house for lice
What Not To Do If You Get Head Lice
We know it will be hard to not freak out, but you must remain calm. There’s a high chance your child is already upset because they have bugs in their hair. You won’t want to get a lice treatment over-the-counter due to it being time consuming, expensive and most importantly ineffective. Also, do not act like it’s nothing either and that you won’t have to do anything to get rid of the lice. Lice do not go away on their own and will only die if given proper treatment.
