Tips to Deal with Lice
Tell your children never to share any hair items.
Watch for scratching.
If someone in your family has head lice, check all family members for lice and nits (eggs) once a week.
Don't confuse nits with dandruff or dirt. Dandruff and dirt can be brushed out of hair; nits cannot.
Consult your pharmacist or physician before using lice treatments.
Use any product correctly and with caution.
Remove nits with a fine-toothed comb or fingernails. Rinsing hair with distilled white vinegar can make nits easier to see.
Wash bedding and recently worn clothing in hot water and dry it in a dryer. Seal unwashable items in plastic bags for two weeks.
