Are you worried that your child may have head lice? Don’t despair. It can happen to anyone, and these little creatures are easy to deal with. But first of all you will need to be certain that head lice are actually the problem. Itchiness is certainly the first sign. Is your child scratching its head a lot? Run a detection comb over the scalp and through the hair when dry.
Step 1: the detection comb
It is important to use a fine-toothed detection comb. Search for lice one lock at a time, paying particular attention behind the ears and around the nape of the neck. This is where head lice tend to lay their eggs.
Step 2: prevent infestation
Have you searched your child’s hair with the detection comb? Don’t forget to clean the comb afterwards. Use tepid soapy water to prevent further infestation .
