How Did I Get Lice?

Treating Head LiceThe first thing to do when you have head lice is to find an effective lice treatment and rid yourself of all lice and nits. The next thing to do is check your kids and partner because lice spread quickly. Lastly make sure you check your hoods and pillow cases for head lice. After you are sure you have rid your person and your space of lice you need to do some investigatory work to make sure you don’t fall victim to lice again.

 

Children are often the vector between lice in the community and lice in the home. If you have a child, that is where your investigation should begin. Children are packed into close quarters at school and camp so they can easily get lice from one another or a communal rug. If your child gets lice alert school officials because chances are other kids have lice as well.

 

Next think about where you could have contracted the lice. Did you lay down on a rug? Share a hooded jacket with a friend? Maybe you let your hair down at a theater? There are a lot ways to get lice so try to think about what you were doing right before symptoms began.
