Nothing causes as much absenteeism in our schools as head lice. Head lice are very common; in fact, infestations are so commonplace that the experts are recommending keeping kids in school when they have lice. This recommendation comes from the reality that the kids have already been interacting with their peers for several days. So, any transfer of lice from one child to another has most likely already occurred.
It’s up to you whether your child stays in school while they have lice or not. Losing valuable educational time because of a head lice infestation can leave your child behind in their studies, affecting their grades. But, you also don’t want your child to be socially affected by the stigma of head lice and exclusion from contact with other kids.
Whatever choice you make as a parent, there are new, more advanced treatment options available today that are guaranteed to eliminate the lice. But, you need to check to be sure that the problem is lice, and not something else.
The Hallmark Symptoms of Lice Infestation in Children
The first sign in many children of head lice is itching of their scalp. But, some children do not itch at all when they have lice. Depending on the child, they may itch a lot, a little, or not at all.
The good news is that the second significant sign of head lice is plainly evident in any infestation. That sign is the presence of nits and lice which are barely visible, seen attached to the hair shaft of the sufferer. When you spot the tiny white nits and grayish lice, you know that the problem is lice. So then, what are the best treatment options to ensure that your child does not miss any more school days?
