Spring is almost here.
Was any else caught off guard by yesterdays Nor’Easter? I guess the old saying is true “March Comes in like a Lion…” Yesterdays storm definitely roared like a lion. Let’s hope that is the last of it.
Spring is on its way. What comes with Spring? Lice. You can take some steps to prevent lice:
1.Avoid head-to-head contact
Advise your child to avoid head-to-head contact when playing with others, whether at school, on a playground, or during sports activities. Head lice can’t fly, hop, or jump; they spread from one child to another through direct contact.
2.Don’t share what’s on your hair
Ask your child not to share combs, brushes, hats, scarves, bandanas, hair bands, ribbons, barrettes, or towels—basically, anything that is worn or used on the head.
3. Don’t use pest sprays and fogs
Do not use pest sprays or fogs in the house. They’re not needed and can be harmful if they’re inhaled or get on the skin.
4. Say “no” to sleepovers for a while
If there’s a head lice infestation at your child’s school, it’s recommended to put sleepovers on hold for a while. This will help to avoid head-to-head contact with other children who may have lice.
