Head Lice Check List

As a parent, one of the many jobs on your endless ‘to do’ list is to discover the best ways to protect and care for your little ones. You hear so much conflicting advice about what to do and what not to do it can sometimes feel like you’re trying to decode a complex maths equation. But when it comes to children’s skincare, your mission is simple – to keep their skin as soft, supple and hydrated as it was the day they were born.

Is an itchy head the main symptom of having head lice?

No, not necessarily. Itching only appears in 30% of cases, so you can have head lice and not have an itchy scalp. Contrary to what you may have heard in the past, an itchy head is not a result of the lice biting, but instead an allergic reaction to secretions made by the lice. Share this fact with your child to induce immediate groans of disgust!
