Lice Giving You Trouble
Lice are a social nuisance, not a health problem. Their presence has nothing to do with being dirty or clean. They don't carry disease or cause illness. Knowing this, they do cause itching and redness on a child's scalp. Parents should: check their children's head weekly for signs of an infestation. Notify the school when their child has lice, as well as others who may have come in contact with the child. The school will send home Form 321-1 for parents to complete and return to the school.
Lice are tiny insects with flat bodies and claws. "Nits" are lice eggs. They're white to grey and they glue to the hair. They can look like a fleck of dandruff, but you will not be able to move it off the hair strand.The first sign may be itching and scratching. The best way to know for sure is to look for live lice on the scalp, particularly around the ears and back of the neck, Using a magnifying glass makes it easier.
Remeber, None of the products on the market kill 100% of the nits. That's why a second treatment is needed. Read the attached article Lice giving You Trouble for more information.
