STAY AWAY!We know that it is particularly disturbing to think that these little suckers are feeding and crawling on your child’s head. The good news is that we know exactly how to get rid of them. The second piece of good news is that while lice are admittedly yucky, they do not carry disease; basically they are a nuisance.

LICE STILL CARRY A STIGMA (ALTHOUGH IT IS LESSENING)

You may be worried about the stigma associated with head lice. closeup of someone holding finger up to lips suggesting silence SHHH.True that they are very contagious, no one wants them, and your child may end up in the “do not play with her” list, for a short time. Here’s the thing: head lice are so prevalent today, that chances are many of your child’s friends have already had it. It is becoming more understood that nits (lice eggs) are not contagious, just the live bugs are, and also that having head lice does not suggest poor hygiene. In fact, head lice are just part of today’s social landscape.
