Head Lice Don’t Take Vacation During Summer in Bellevue – Tips for Parents
It’s summer, and lots of kids are off to summer camps. Families are going on their yearly vacation while the kids are out of school, but unfortunately head lice don’t take any time off as kids and parents do. Even during the months when your kids are enjoying their time off and having a great time with friends, screening for lice is important. While you may not know it, there are natural products designed to help you in preventing an infestation, along with treatment should you discover your child has become a victim of lice while at summer camp or on vacation.
Summer camps are a prime breeding ground for head lice, who love nothing more than a crowd of kids. Before your child heads off to camp pre-screening is important, as most camps don’t allow those with an infestation to attend. Prevention of head lice isn’t guaranteed, however you can reduce the odds of your child becoming a victim by providing guidance regarding the sharing of brushes, combs, and other hair accessories in addition to warning about touching heads or taking “selfies” of the fun at camp, photos in which heads touch.
Summer vacation for your child may mean attending camp, playing with the neighborhood kids, or even having sleepovers every week or two. Hot weather and humidity are conditions lice love, so be sure if your child is going to a friend’s for a sleepover to send along a pillow, comb/brush or other hair tools, and his/her own pajamas. Better to be safe than sorry!
