Incubation, Signs and Symptoms

Incubation Period: The nits (eggs) of lice may hatch in 1 week. Sexual maturity is reached approximately 8-10 days after hatching.

Signs and Symptoms: Infestation of the head and hairy parts of the body with adult lice, larvae and nits. This results in itching and irritation of the scalp and skin. Female lice are generally the size of a sesame seed. Eggs or nits are tiny tan or pearl-gray specks that attach to the hair shaft close to the scalp.

Methods of Transmission

Transmission occurs almost exclusively by contact with an infested person. Transmission can occur from sharing hats, combs and brushes, or by other articles recently in contact with the head of an infested person. Lice DO NOT jump or fly. Hair length does not influence infestation.

Minimum Control Measures

Communicable Period: From time of infestation until after completion of initial treatment.

Control:

This is because an individual with a head lice infestation has likely had the infestation for several days or weeks, and at this. On the day of diagnosis, the person infested with head lice should be allowed to remain in class

or in day care, but should be discouraged from close direct contact with others.point poses little risk to others.

The child’s parent or guardian should be notified that day by telephone or a note sent home with the child at the end of the school day stating that prompt, proper treatment of this condition is in the best interest of the child and his or her classmates.

Once home the individual with an active head lice infestation should be EXCLUDED from attendance until after first treatment with a medicated head lice product. Parents of affected children should be notified and informed that their child must be properly treated.
