Thank goodness my son is older than pre-school/elementary school age, when the most dreaded phone call was “Mr. Reeves, your son has head lice.”
A neighbor recently went through the anguish of such a call. I thought I’d collect links to the latest control information.
Note: mayonnaise, olive oil and petroleum jelly probably won’t work…they just incite false hope that something inexpensive will work.
By the way: my neighbor hired a local company to search her daughter’s scalp. Here’s a link to local head lice control companies.
Second note: Neither the CDC or the American Academy of Pediatrics advocate keeping children with head lice out of school.
