Information about Head Lice
Head Lice are a common problem in school aged children. They can’t be prevented, but
regular checking ensures early detection and treatment if necessary. Parents and carers
should check their children’s head once a week during hair washing. You need your
usual shampoo, conditioner, and a detection comb – ask your local pharmacist to
recommend a suitable one. Remember that you are looking for living moving lice, the
only evidence that your child is infected.
If you find a living louse, ask your local pharmacist, school nurse, health visitor or GP for
advice regarding treatment.
