White Head Lice. I am seeing little white things in my child’s hair. Could it be nits in hair? Many families actually send us photographs using their smartphones, of what they are seeing in their children’s hair. Often mistaken for lice, dandruff and hair casts can result in kids being kicked out of school due to no nit policies. This is unnecessary and unfortunate. The CDC says children should not be missing days of school because of head lice.
White Head Lice. Parents often ask how to kill the lice and nits on their children’s heads. There is a surprising amount of confusion and misinformation about how can you get lice on the internet. These urban myths and conflicting head lice information creates additional stress for parents when their kids get head lice. Parents keep hearing about “Super Lice” and this makes them even more fearful that they will never be able to get rid of lice!
