Why wait for your child to become infected
It's difficult nowadays to imagine allowing our children to play in the sun without protection. However, even as little as twenty years ago, many of us were still largely unaware of the long term damage to their fragile skins. Today, we know better with a wide variety of sunblocks, lycra sun suits and beach shades available to help us protect our children.
Protecting our children against head lice is the same sort of thing. Why wait for your childen to become infested before taking action? The bane of many of us, the head louse, is a very common problem, especially for kids aged 3 to 12 years old. It's now thought that more than 1 in 3 children in the UK are likely to get head lice at some time during the year.
Head lice are highly contagious and can cause irritation
Although they aren't dangerous and don't spread disease, they are highly contagious and can cause your child's scalp to become itchy and inflamed. Persistent scratching can be extremely aggravating and can lead to skin irritation and even infection.
Hard to get rid of
Once your child is infected , there's no doubt that they can be hard to get rid of and can be a persistant nuisiance, especially in group settings such as schools and play groups. This could be because:
- some nits were left behind
- your child is still being exposed to someone with lice
- the treatment you're using isn't effective
- the head lice are resistant to the treatment you are using
No more bad hair days
I'm sure we can all remember nighs combing, treating, washing, conditioning and re-combing our children's hair. Tortuous both for our children and us as tired parents after a long day! Also after treatment - it doesn't prevent re-infestation.
