A reasonable solution that only few parents choose is to inform other parents and the teachers about the problem. This will increase vigilance, control the heads of children, and implement measures to stop the development of head lice.
Parents should be aware of risk of re-infestation, when their child returns to school. Thus, it is worth to use head lice prevention sprays on a daily basis to minimize the risks even more.
Everyone but especially parents who struggle with pediculosis re-infestations, agree that it is better to prevent than treat. To minimize the risk of getting infected with lice:
- tie your child’s longer hair into a ponytail or braid
- explain that he or she should not borrow personal belongings like hats, elastics, combs and hairbrushes from other children (as it is possible to get infested indirectly; head lice can survive up to 2 days away from human’s head and nits for up to 2 weeks, hence their possible presence on objects or fabrics)
- use products that prevents from infestation
Recommended for this purpose is Nitolic prevent plus, which formula was developed by the Polish company ICB Pharma taking into account the comfort of children and parents. The product does not oil the hair, has a fresh smell and it protects until first hair wash. It is 100% safe for children as it contains ingredients of natural origin. Finally, it can be used even every day if needed.
