Some of the most common activities that kids do in Summer is to go to camp or go to a sleep-over. If your child is not very careful; they may return home with a head lice infestation.
Head lice are one of the most contagious health problems affecting our children, only second to the common cold - six to 12 million children catch head lice annually in the U.S. - spreading easily among children in group settings - at school, camp, etc. About 1 in 10 kids will contact lice by the sixth grade. Lice are spread by head to head contact with infested individuals, or they hitch a ride onto a new head on clothing, combs, helmets, head phones, towels, hair ties, brushes, hats and/or backpacks. They can crawl, but they can't jump or fly. While there is no absolute way to prevent head lice infestations but, simply avoiding shared personal items will definitely help to reduce the incidence of head lice infestations.
About the size of a sesame seed, head lice are six-legged parasites that live on the human head. And nits – eggs that females glue onto hairs near the scalp – can be difficult to spot. "The nits are usually sort of like a clear-looking, light color, tannish," The itchy condition is most common in daycare centers, schools and Summer camps because of the close interaction among children.
Excessive scratching should be investigated further and the return home and/or the beginning of the school year is when head lice are often discovered. Don't expect the school nurse or camp counselor to monitor your child for these critters. Take a few minutes and peek at the areas of the head where they like to hang out, that being the nape of the neck and behind the ears. Adult lice may or may not be visible, and nits are usually seen on the hair shaft close to the scalp.
Head lice are perfectly evolved human predators. They establish and maintain their homes on the human head. They copulate and reproduce on the host. The host’s blood nourishes them. Their success in infesting people far exceeds other human parasites such as pinworm or hookworm. Achieving control of these parasites can be difficult, time-consuming and frustrating, especially if you use the wrong/dangerous products.
If you continue to be infested with live lice after pediculicide (POISON)treatment after treatment, discontinue all use of these synthetic POISONS and don't use any other synthetic POISONS in the vain hope of trying to kill the head lice. Remember, these products are not mere shampoos, medicines, crèmes or lotions, they are really pesticide POISONS.

Is there any way to stop them? coz it’s kind of annoying when they are living on you, your scalp will be itchy and sometimes you can’t concentrate on your works.
