Finally the house back to myself during the day, back to school season is back! As a parent, you know that will get you smiling🙂 but get ready to turn frown upside down with reports of a SUPER lice in 42 out of 48 states! First thing I thought about was super lice? Are they wearing a cape? HA! I’m laughing now but having lice is no laughing matter☹️. Back to school means kids are exchanging everything from germs and hairbrushes, jackets, hats and anything in between.
Reports are saying that these lice in particular are called SUPER lice because they are resistant to the over-the-counter medications that everyone has come to use. The best advice now is to go to a doctor if your child has them to make sure they are eliminated effectively and immediately before they spread. Of course it’s also very important to teach your child not to share those items, (in a nice respectable manner) but we as parents must be diligent in checking for head lice in our children on a regular.
