Headlice advice

 

Subject: Headlice.

 

 

 

 

 

Dear Parents,
As headlice can spread quite quickly I would ask you to be vigilant and check your child’s hair regularly.  If headlice are found it is important that all members of the family are checked and treated if necessary.


The advice from the school nurse is to put lots of conditioner onto DRY hair, part hair into small sections and comb through from the scalp to the tips with a nit comb.  This should be carried out every 2 to 3 days for at least 2 weeks.


For the most up to date advice on treating headlice please talk to a pharmacist.  It is important to follow the instructions carefully.  You can also look on the website www.nhs.uk , click on Health A-Z for Headlice information and treatment.

Yours Sincerely,
