 Here’s  a followup to our Lice presentation  

Image result for lice cartoonImage result for lice cartoonImage result for lice cartoon

Lice Happens is a lice removal service owned and operated by a Registered Nurse and other professionals that help families with lice.

During the meeting we learned that most kids get lice from direct head-to-head contact.  Although they are not against over-the-counter medicine treatments. They find that the most effective head lice treatment method is manual removal with a professional nit comb, as risk to your child is minimal and nits can be removed, breaking the bugs’ life cycle.  Therefore a weekly thorough comb through is highly recommended.

Don’t forget to let your child’s teacher and the school know if your child happens to acquire lice as it is becoming a common thing these days.   Sometimes lice just happens.  It’s up to us as a community to help each other stop the cycle.

Please follow the link below to see more questions and answers the people of Lice Happens have to offer.
