? To Get Lice When
i Weather Turns
Brunswick County Schools nurse
Beatrice Flythe. R.N., says head lice
infestation is an ongoing problem
among school-age children.
Lice can infest the hair anytime of
year, she said. However, most cases
are found when the weather starts to
A single child with head lice can
easily spread the infestation among
playmates in any setting, said
More eases of head lice infesta
tion occur than all other communi
cable childhood diseases combined,
she said, which means it is quite
likely someone's child will be ex
posed at some time.
Head-to-head contact is the main
way lice spread to other children,
but not the only way.
"Sharing combs, hairbrushes,
hooded coats, sweaters, hats, head
bands and other pieces of clothing
can also spread lice." she said, as
can car seats and headrests and air
line seats, pillows and stereo head
Itching is often the first clue that a
child has lice ? especially itching be
hind the ears, at the back of the neck
and sometimes along the upper back.
"Any child who complains of
such itching should be immediately
checked for head lice," said Flythe.
"If you suspect that your child has
lice due to frantic scratching of the
scalp or your finding small flat bugs
in the hair, treat with a pediculicide
"Do not send your child to school
if the child has these symptoms,"
In addition to treating the single
infestation, Flythe said it is impor
tant that every household member
be examined as well and that every
one who is infested be treated at the
Lice shampoo (pediculicide) is
available over the counter without a
prescription. It can also be obtained
at no cost from the Brunswick
County Health Department (253
4381 or 457-5281).
A pediculicide product should
never be used to prevent lice infesta
tions, only to treat a problem that
has been identified.
Some products require a second
treatment about seven to 10 days af
ter the first treatment.
To remove nits, the eggs of the
lice that cling tightly to the hair near
its roots, requires a fine- tooth comb.
First, suggested Flythe. dip the
comb in warm vinegar and then
comb the hair repeatedly. The vine
gar should help loosen the eggs.
However any nits that cannot be
removed by combing can be cut out
with scissors or picked out with the
"Clean your nails immediately if
you use them to remove nits,"
Dead eggs can also be pushed
along the hair shaft for removal.
Good housekeeping can make a
difference in whether a child is rein
When dealing with a lice infesta
tion. it's important to simultaneously
treat the environment ? either home
or school, because lice and their nits
can survive, for a short time, off of a

"The band happened to be just in
credible," said John McCar.n. who
coordinates a team of Macy's em

sophistication." He said judges also
