Head Lice Cleaning. No cleaning of the house is necessary with lice! That’s right folks lice are not in your house. That is the wrong bug. That would be bedbugs or fleas or dust mites. Cleaning the whole house and laundry and bagging all the stuffed animals would be appropriate if you child had bedbugs, fleas or dust mites. However, you child does not have bedbugs, fleas or dust mites. So you can relax and take a deep breath.
Head Lice Cleaning. That’s right. We are Moms and our hair is a big deal. The idea that our kids or, OMG, ourselves might have head lice in our hair is absolutely horrifying to all of us. In fact we’d rather not think about lice, ever. When the lice letters come home from school week after week, we are not even sure how to “check” our kids for lice! Have no fear, head lice is manageable. Head Lice removal treatment is possible without pesticides! Also you can skip going nuts cleaning your house(wrong bug!).
Head Lice Cleaning. Head lice still carry a strong social stigma connoting poor parenting and poverty. This stigma is outdated and inappropriate. Head lice thrive in clean hair and clean houses. All of the laundering, cleaning and bagging would only be necessary if your child had Body Lice (genetically distinct from Head Lice). Your child does not have Body Lice.
Head Lice Cleaning. Pesticides used to work on head lice. 40 years ago people were using DDT to get rid of head lice. Now the pesticides available are pyrethrin and permethrin, neither of which work. Head Lice have become resistant to pesticides and the lice shampoos containing the pesticides are not effective. In fact when parents utilize pesticide shampoos for lice, it gives them a false sense of security, because they feel they have dealt with the problem, when in fact their child still has lice.
