A NOTE FROM THE SCHOOL NURSE:
The cold weather is upon us! So....it's time to discuss head lice again. I’ve included a few facts from the DPH Website and would recommend you check your children’s hair as part of your daily hygiene routine.
What are head lice?
Head lice are blood sucking parasites. They are approximately the size of a sesame seed, 1-2 mm. They do not have wings and, therefore, cannot fly. They also do not jump. They do, however, move quickly. The nits are attached to the hair shaft with a waterproof, cement-like substance from the adult female. Thus, nits cannot be simply washed or brushed out of the hair.
How are head lice spread?
Head lice are usually transmitted through close personal contact with another infested individual or through use of common combs and brushes; through sharing hats, caps, coats; or through co-mingling of these items at the homes of friends, at school, at church, or other public places.
What are the symptoms of infestation with head lice?
The major symptom of head lice is itching, which is due to the presence of salivary fluid produced by the insect as it feeds.
How do you eliminate head lice?
Individual treatment usually requires using an over-the-counter (OTC) or prescription medication and a nit (head lice egg) comb. THEN: Decontamination of Personal Articles and vironment:To kill lice and nits, all washable clothing and bed linens should be machine washed in hot water (130°F). Laundry should be dried at high heat. All clothing, stuffed animals, comforters, etc. that cannot be washed or dry cleaned can be stored for 2 weeks in a plastic bag that is sealed with tape.Combs and brushes can be soaked for 1 hour in rubbing alcohol, Lysol*, or wash with soap and hot (130°F) water. Vacuum the floor and furniture, and cars!
Prevent Reinfestation! Avoid head-to-head contact during play at school and at home (on a playground, sleepover party, camp, sports outing).Do not share hats, scarves, hair ribbons, coats, etc. Do not share combs, brushes, or towels.
