Health Tip of the Day

Tips to Deal with Lice

  • Tell your children never to share any hair items.

  • Watch for scratching.

  • If someone in your family has head lice, check all family members for lice and nits (eggs) once a week.

  • Don't confuse nits with dandruff or dirt. Dandruff and dirt can be brushed out of hair; nits cannot.

  • Consult your pharmacist or physician before using lice treatments.

  • Use any product correctly and with caution.

  • Remove nits with a fine-toothed comb or fingernails. Rinsing hair with distilled white vinegar can make nits easier to see.

  • Wash bedding and recently worn clothing in hot water and dry it in a dryer. Seal unwashable items in plastic bags for two weeks.
