Head Lice: The Epidemic Rages

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

As school begins, so does this year's epidemic of lice. Find out what to do if your kids have 'em.

Brace yourselves for one of THE most annoying conditions your kid can get at school--lice. In a recent study, reported that between 6 to 12 million kids ages 3 to 11 are infected every year. These are bugs that have grown resistant to most medications and are extremely difficult to get rid of. They spread like wildfire (actually, they spread by crawling ... eeww)--and in many cases, students are forced to stay home from school to prevent further infestations.

How do you fight these annoying beasts? First, check your kids on a regular basis when you notice signs of irritation. Lice are usually found on the scalp, behind the ears and on the nape of the neck. The school nurse should be able to provide guidance to help you find a company that gets rid of them for you, like "Hair Fairies."  It's a full service salon located in several major cities that's dedicated to removing head lice safely, effectively and with all non-toxic products. Over-the-counter creams and shampoos typically don't do the trick--and need to be repeated numerous times. Several additional products are currently awaiting approval by the FDA--but until then, check out Hair Fairies' tips and techniques below--so you can know how to fight these buggers.

To find a location or to buy their products to use at home, check out the Hair Fairies Web site!
