Lice are not a sign of poor hygiene but rather evidence that the person concerned maintains close social contact.
An accumulation of infections with lice infestation occurs, especially after the summer holidays.
Because although in many places, there is still the belief that the lice jump from person to person or transmitted via pillows.
Frequent hair washing doesn’t help either: from the 9th day of life, the female louse lives five eggs the size of a grain of sand, which she sticks directly to the hairline with a glue-like, water-repellent substance.
This substance prevents the nits from coming loose through contact with water or with regular shampoo.
Lice infestation is not dangerous but very unpleasant because the lice feed on human blood.
These are the tips to act immediately:
If it appeared in the social environment (kindergarten, school, sports club) or if your child frequently scratches their head, you must check the hair carefully.
Take enough time for this. Work in a good light. Comb through your hair with a nit comb, strand by strand. The effectiveness of the combs varies.
If there are only isolated nits, it is sufficient to remove them and continue to check the hair regularly.
Only use the louse shampoo if you have found lice that are alive. Preventive treatments are of no use.
If live lice still found after the chemical treatment, they are resistant to the active substance contained in the shampoo. Change the shampoo.
Notify the nursery, school, after-school care, and the parents of your friends immediately if you find lice or nits in your child.
