- Inspect your child’s head, especially if your child has an itchy scalp. Look for eggs, nymphs, and adult lice. One female adult louse can lay about 100 eggs during her life span. That’s a lot of new lice.
- Call the parents of your child’s friends and have them check for head lice, remembering that earlier intervention can help to reduce the infestation level. Lack of communication often allows head lice to spread in secret.
- If you see lice—or if you are unsure whether you have lice—visit a professional lice treatment center, such as Lice Clinics of America.
- Traditional over-the-counter treatments contain pesticides that are no longer effective. Lice have evolved into “super lice” and have developed resistance to those pesticides. Find a treatment that is safe and effective. Lice Clinics of America provides a number of options.
- Be safe by starting your child on a lice prevention regimen using trusted lice prevention products such as shampoos, conditioners, sprays, and hair bands that will help to keep lice away from your child’s scalp.
