TIPS FOR CLEANING HOME AND PREVENTING REINFESTATION:
- Until they have been properly cleaned, do not allow family members to lie on pillows, beds, furniture, carpets or stuffed animals that the infested person has been in contact with.
- Wash all clothing, bedding, towels and any other items the infested person was in contact with before treatment. Set washing machine to hot water cycle (at least 130°F). Dry items in clothes dryer, set on the high heat cycle for at least 20 minutes.
- Dry-clean the items that can't be washed, or place them in a sealed, air-tight plastic bag and store for 4 weeks.
- Vacuum furniture, carpets, rugs, floor, car seats and any other place the infested person sat. Dispose of vacuum filter immediately.
- Soak the infested person's brushes and combs in hot soapy water for at least 10 minutes to disinfect them.
CHECK FAMILY MEMBERS FOR HEAD LICE:
- Under bright light, check every family member for lice and lice eggs for 10 days. Watch for movement, as lice will quickly travel away from the light.
- Part hair and examine scalp. Eggs and nits are about the size of a poppy seed and are white or yellowish-brown. Eggs are located on the hair shaft, near the scalp. Eggs often look like dandruff, but cannot be easily removed.
- Pay close attention when examining the nape of the neck and behind the ears. Eggs that have recently been laid are nearly transparent, so it's best to examine the hair from different angles.
- Itching is the most common symptom of lice infestation, but some infested people do not experience itching- so it's important to check all family members whether they complain of itching or not.
- Vamousse can be used as often as needed if reinfestation occurs.
HOW ARE HEAD LICE SPREAD, AND WHO GETS HEAD LICE?
Head lice do not jump or fly; they walk from one hair to another. The most common way head lice spread is through direct head-to-head contact with an infested person. Sometimes they are spread by sharing a comb, brush or clothing with the infested person.
Anyone who comes in contact with head lice can become infested. Infestation is not a result of poor hygiene and can exist on any type of hair. An infestation of head lice is known as pediculosis capitis. If your child has head lice, you're not alone. After the common cold, head lice is the second most common communicable disease affecting school-aged children.
WHAT ARE HEAD LICE?
Head lice are parasitic insects that only affect humans. They survive by sucking blood from the human scalp. Head lice can't be caught from animals, or passed on to animals. Head lice are about the size of a sesame seed.
WHAT ARE NITS/EGGS?
A female louse will lay approximately 6 eggs per day. The eggs are white, brownish, yellowish, or grayish. They are firmly attached to the hair shaft, close to the scalp, with a waterproof, glue-like substance. At first glance, they may look like dandruff. Eggs hatch in 8-10 days.
Once hatched, lice enter the nymph stage, and are smaller than adult lice. Lice reach maturity in about 12 days, and live about five weeks. Because they prefer a dark, warm environment, lice are often discovered behind the ears, under a ponytail, or at the nape of the infested person's neck. Head lice only survive 1-2 days if they have fallen off a person and cannot feed.
