When should you check for head lice?

Head lice isn’t always noticeable immediately. In fact, in most cases many people aren’t even aware that they have lice until they have had it for a couple weeks. Lice can be somewhat sneaky and hide in places you wouldn’t regularly check or might be covered, such as behind the ears or at the nape of the neck. If you are doing a check and you do find a nit or a louse don’t panic, Lice Clinics of America is here to help treat your family. Before you come to us, here are some tips as to how to check at home.

How often should I check?

If your child is around a lot of kids on a daily basis such as school or after school activates, it is recommended to check them at bath time once a week. It can be especially hard to see those tiny little eggs on the hair so we recommend that you use a nit comb. Using the comb will allow you to potentially pull out any nits or louse. We still recommend that you check your child’s hair even once they have passed grade school.

What do you do once you have found lice?
