Head Lice

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This ten-page handout educates people about head lice, which are tiny parasitic wingless insects that live in the hair and bite the scalp to feed on blood. It describes head lice and their eggs, known as nits, and explains how lice can spread quickly from one person to another, listing signs and symptoms. It discusses treatment using a nit comb and medicated lice shampoo, cream, or lotion, providing step-by-step instructions for use of Nix Creme Rinse, and what to do after treatment. The document identifies who should not use lice products, and who should check with their doctor first. It recommends ways to clean in order to remove lice from the home, communicate with school and other parents, and prevent the spread of head lice.
