The 411 on lice
The head louse, or Pediculus humanus capitis, is a parasitic insect that can be found on the head and, more rarely, the eyebrows and eyelashes of people. Head lice feed on human blood several times a day and live close to the scalp to maintain their body temperature.
You may suspect that your child has lice if he or she has any of the following symptoms:
- Tickling feeling of something moving in the hair.
- Excessive itching, usually caused by an allergic reaction to the bites.
- Irritability and difficulty sleeping; head lice are most active in the dark.
- Sores on the head caused by scratching.
Here's what to do:
First, look closely for crawling nymphs or adults. Finding them can be difficult. There are typically few of them, and they can move quickly. However, they are usually visible to the naked eye. Using a magnifying lens and/or light may help.
Next, look for nits (eggs). In an active case of head lice, you'll most likely find nits within 1/4 inch of the scalp. If you only find nits more than 1/4 inch from the scalp, the infestation could be old and may not need to be treated.
If you are still unsure, take your child to the doctor, a school nurse or other health care provider.
Natural lice treatment
Many claim that natural remedies are 'anecdotal' (unreliable) and are not scientifically proven. But independent studies of parents and caregivers show that there are many different natural therapies that are completely effective. Ladibugs pesticide-free products prevent and treat lice without pesticides or toxic, harsh chemicals. High quality ingredients and essential oils naturally eliminate and prevent head lice infestations.
