If you think your child may have headlice, or you get a message from school about a case of headlice in your child's year group, the information below will help. We have asked the school nurse for the best course of treatment and she has advised to wet comb the hair, as below;
WET COMBING ADVICE
This is the best method for detection of head lice and should be done at least weekly.
This method is also recommended if head lice are found -
• wash the hair with shampoo
• towel dry
• apply lots of conditioner
• comb hair with a normal comb
• section off the hair like a hairdresser does
• go through the hair with the comb
• inspect comb after every swipe of the hair
• rinse the comb with water
• if lice are still present in teeth of comb use an old tooth brush to remove
• continue until no live lice are seen
• rinse out the conditioner
• dry the hair in the normal way
If live lice are found this process will need repeating every 2-3 days and for 2-3 weeks after the last louse are seen.
All the close family and friends will need to be checked also.
Please contact the School Health Team if you would like further help and support in this matter.
