Your Child Has Lice- Do’s and Don’ts


  • Do stay calm.If the school nurse calls to report that your child has lice, pick them up from school and try and relax.
  • Don’t tear your home apart.Only wash the bedding from the person that has head lice. You don’t need to launder every piece of clothing in their closet. If they wore a jacket within the last two days and will wear it again within two days, wash it in hot water, put it in dryer, or put it away for two days. Live lice can’t live off of the head for more than two days and you can’t catch nits.
