With another summer coming to a close, it’s that time of year for buying school supplies and doing anything else needed to get the kids ready for school. As a parent living in Ocean County, you may want to consider that one of these necessities may be to check your children for head lice. If your kids are like most, they were playing with other children throughout the summer, and the chances for physical contact with each other and, therefore, the spread of lice is quite high. Each year, millions of children throughout America become infested with head lice, and the following are a few tips to deal with this situation.
Establish That There Is a Situation to Deal With
The first thing you should do, as a parent, is to perform a lice head check. Before discussing technique, it would be helpful to know what you’re looking for. Head lice are about the size of a sesame seed, have six legs and range anywhere from a beige to a dark brown color. Nymphs, or baby lice, are especially hard to spot because they are very tiny. Lice eggs, or nits, can be various shades of brown in color and are attached to the base of hair follicles by a glue-like substance. It can also help to simply do a Google image search for “head lice”, and you’ll get a good idea of what they look like pretty quickly.
To check your child’s hair and scalp for lice, simply use a comb to push their hair aside and look closely to try to spot the lice and their nits. It is helpful to wet their hair before performing this lice head check. If you see what you believe to be lice, then you should handle this problem quickly before they spread to anyone else.
Seek a Professional Head Lice Removal Service
As a parent who has to make every dollar go as far as possible, it may seem more cost effective to simply go to the store and buy some over-the-counter product that claims to kill head lice. A true remedy for any problem, however, is really only cost effective if it actually works. Most lice today have become immune to the toxins used in retail lice shampoos available at stores. Thankfully, there are services that specialize in head lice treatment, and because this is all they do, their remedies are effective and can also be very affordable.
