We get asked this question all the time, especially in summertime when Grandma and Grandpa are visiting. The answer is no, grandparents rarely, if ever, get head lice. Lice are very picky about new hosts and kids heads are warmer than adults. Most grandparents have thinning, or no hair, rendering their scalps an unattractive choice for a louse to travel to.So all grandparents can continue to hug and cuddle their beloved grand kids, without the fear of contracting head lice. Instead of worrying about getting lice themselves, grandparents can offer to assist in the job of head lice removal treatment for their grand kids!
