It’s the topic no one wants to talk about, yet it happens – often: head lice.
With back-to-school season in full swing, here are four things all parents must know:
1. Lice are attracted to clean hair, so don’t be embarrassed if you spot them on your child.
2. Lice can’t live off a human for more than 48 hours.
3. Store-bought kits work, but they are pesticides, so understand the risks.
4. There are places dedicated to removing lice. In Pittsburgh, check out Center for Lice Removal.
If your child is scratching, do a thorough head check.
