Are head lice contagious?
Head lice can spread extremely quickly, especially in children’s group settings likes schools and nurseries.
They aren’t able to fly or jump from person to person, but they can crawl and cling onto hair through head-to-head contact and sharing clothing, bed linen and hairbrushes.
You can prevent the spread of your child’s head lice by making sure they avoid head-to-head contact with other children and by tying long hair back into a bun or braid.
How do you treat head lice?
Head lice and nits are very common amongst young children and they can cause unpleasant itchiness.
To treat head lice, start by washing your hair with regular shampoo and applying lots of conditioner, then comb the whole head of hair while it’s wet with a detection comb.
If that doesn’t work after a couple of weeks, your pharmacist may recommend a medicated lotion or spray to kill the headlice within a day.
