Home - 8-12 years - Lice


How can we get rid of lice?

  When we seem to have lice, the following parallel steps should be taken:

Prevention (to avoid contaminating others): our classmates must be told about the problem, and we must also observe some measures of hygiene:
* Let our parents examine our scalp, especially behind the ears, at the back of the head, and front region.
* Wash our hair often: two or three times a week.
* Comb our hair daily. Clean our comb or brush frequently.
* Do not pass your personal cleaning items on to siblings or classmates.

Treatment (to eliminate them): Contact pesticides are available that cause the death of lice by paralysis.
