During summer vacation, you don’t see kids itching. However, as soon as the vacation is over and they return to school, you see them scratching their head again. Millions of students every year get infested and parents have to look for a treatment to stop head lice from spreading.
See, at school, kids study and play together, mostly in groups. When they play and when there is a head contact or even body contact, head lice get a chance to move from one child to another. Since lice can multiply in number at a rapid pace, they manage to grow and infest more and more students.
Other than head and body contact, head lice get a chance to move through different objects as well. So, they can be anywhere. They can be present in clothing, brushes, combs, towels, bed sheets, pillow covers, etc. So, when these things are shared, these monsters get a chance to find a new home.
So, this is how kids mainly get infested at school, because these blood suckers can’t jump or fly. You should educate your kids that they should avoid head contact and stop sharing their clothing, towels, hair bands, brushes, etc.
Adults get infested mainly through kids at home. So, if your child has been infested then it’s best to exercise caution. You must also avoid sharing clothing, bed sheets, pillow covers, towels, brushes, etc.
Treat your kid who has been infested. Do not treat your hair if you don’t have any lice or nits in your hair.
