Home - 8-12 years - Lice



  Now that you have learned about the life and activities of lice, remember that they must be eliminated as quickly as possible, and above all:
1.- Consult your doctor or pharmacist
2.- Consult your doctor or pharmacist

Note for teachers and relatives:
* Children without lice do not need to be treated. The parents should watch out for the presence of eggs. This can also be encouraged from school.
* At school, it is important for all infested children to follow treatment simultaneously, since contagion may occur between infested children who have not yet received treatment and children already treated.
* Affected relatives are to be treated at the same time, since they may transmit the parasite to healthy children and thus spread the problem throughout the school.

It is advisable for infested children to stay at home and not return to school until effective treatment has been started.
