Head Lice Information

Steps for Safe Use of treatment – Follow these steps to use any head lice treatment safely and appropriately.

  • After rinsing the product from the hair and scalp, use a fine-toothed comb or special “nit comb” to remove dead lice and nits.
  • Apply the product only to the scalp and the hair attached to the scalp-not to other body hair.
  • Before treating young children, talk with the child’s doctor or your pharmacist for recommended treatments based on a child’s age and weight.
  • Use medication exactly as directed on the label and never more often than directed unless advised by your health care professional.
  • Use treatments on children only under the direct supervision of an adult.
  • Teach your children to avoid head-to-head contact during play and other activities at home, school, and elsewhere (sports activities, playgrounds, slumber parties, and camps).
  • Teach your child to not share clothing and supplies, such as hats, carves, helmets, sports uniforms, towels, combs, brushes, bandanas, hair ties and headphones.
  • Disinfest combs and brushes used by a person with head lice by soaking them in hot water (at least 130°F) for 5-10 minutes.
  • Do not lie on beds, couches, pillows, carpets, or stuffed animals that have recently been in contact with a person with head lice.
  • Clean items that have been in contact with the head of a person with lice in the 48 hours before treatment. Machine wash and dry clothing, bed linens, and other items using hot water (130°F) and a high heat drying cycle. Clothing and items that are not washable can be dry-cleaned or sealed in a plastic bag and stored for two weeks.
  • Vacuum the floor and furniture, particularly where the person with lice sat or lay. Head lice survive less than one or two days if they fall off the scalp and cannot feed.
  • Do not use insecticide sprays or fogs; they are not necessary to control head lice and can be toxic if inhaled or absorbed through the skin.
  • After finishing treatment with lice medication, check everyone in your family for lice after one week. If live lice are found, contact your health care professional.

Check list for cleaning:

Wash bath towels, coats, washable rugs, hats, scarves, sheets, blankets and pillow cases

Sanitize brushes, combs, nit combs, barrettes and other hair holders

Vacuum car seats, chairs, couches, pillows from couch or bed, bed mattresses

Remember to comb and pick nits twice a day for two weeks, even if you don’t see nits!!

Good Health Habits

 

Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.

If possible, stay home from work, school and errands when you are sick. You will prevent others from catching your illness.

Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing, use the bend of your elbow if no tissue is available. This may prevent those around you from getting sick.

Clean your hands!

Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.

Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose or mouth.
