Head Lice Information

Head Lice are a common problem in school aged children. They can’t be prevented, but

regular checking ensures early detection and treatment if necessary. Parents and carers

should check their children’s head once a week during hair washing. You need your

usual shampoo, conditioner, and a detection comb – ask your local pharmacist to

recommend a suitable one. Remember that you are looking for living moving lice, the

only evidence that your child is infected.

If you find a living louse, ask your local pharmacist, school nurse, health visitor or GP for

advice regarding treatment.
