Hair Lice Lessons

Posted on Mon, Apr 16, 2012 under

When we learn about lice in school generally the extent of it is important lessons like not sharing hats and not touching our heads excessively. Little did we know then that our simple proximity in classes and in school in general would ensure that any incident of hair lice in the school could very quickly escalate and make its way onto the vast majority of heads in a given grade.

In my time at school there were even bouts of school wide head lice inspections administered by the school’s own nurses on every child in the school. These inspections made me wonder about a lot of things not the least of which was, if you are searching for lice with the same tools how are those tools not becoming breeding grounds for the lice?


Still there was an element of scared straight-ness to the measures taken to try and stamp out lice in the school. If nothing else it bred an inert awareness of the critters and in general has informed my knowledge about the best and most effective lice treatments available. These days I no longer have the fear of lice I once did since I am aware of how to handle them.
