What You Should Never Do if Your Baby Has Lice

Baby without lice

It’s troublesome enough when your kid gets lice. But then again, you become used to knowing what to do as soon as you see that telltale sign of nits and louse.

You wash your kid’s hair, throw their pillow and clothes in the washer under the hottest setting and take them to a lice removal clinic so they can have their hair cleaned. But what should you do when your infant has lice?

Can Babies Get Lice?

Lice don’t really see age when it comes to their source of food. Even if your little one is under 2 years of age, or even less than six months, they may be susceptible to lice infestations if another person in the house has the problem. And since they’re little, you can’t really use an over-the-counter treatment to get rid of the lice (not that we’d recommend it for older people as well).

Instead, we recommend the following steps to keep your little one lice-free.

Steps to Follow When Your Baby Has Lice

· Make Sure the Baby Has Lice

Dry hair and lice often have the same symptoms i.e. itchy scalp, flaky skin etc. Babies also get cradle cap so you may need to be certain about what your baby has before searching for a solution.

· DO NOT USE Over-the-Counter Products

Baby skin is a lot more sensitive than adult skin. Over-the-counter products contain harsh chemicals that can not only cause allergic reactions, but also skin infections. Never use any such products or any home remedies. You don’t know yet what your little one is allergic to.

· Wash their Bedding, Clothing and Stuffed Animals

Wash any items that they’ve used and seal any items that aren’t washable in a Ziploc bag for 3-4 days. If they have any live lice or nits on them, this will prevent them from hatching. Also, vacuum the floor, furniture and mattress daily so there are no lice anywhere.

· Take Your Little One to a Lice Removal Expert

Only a lice removal expert can give you the best solution for getting rid of your baby’s lice. For example, the experts at Lice Busters USA use safe, pesticide free products to get prevent any allergies and to maintain hair quality. So this not only benefits your hair’s cleanliness but also your hair growth.

Come to Us for Your Lice Problems!

The best and fastest way to get rid of lice is by going to a lice removal clinic that offers natural, all-safe treatments. Lice Busters in Central Florida offers such treatments for an affordable price.

Lice Outbreak at a Daycare? Take these Steps Before it is Too Late

Mother takes children to kindergarten

Is that the ‘someone in your class or daycare has head lice’ letter in your backup already? Yay” said no mother ever.

Lice are contagious creatures, and certainly not very choosy. These blood-sucking critters can live in anyone’s hair! Head lice are especially common among kids who are in daycare, preschool, or any other type of group setting.

Did you just notice lice crawling in your child’s head? Or maybe the day care reported an outbreak a few days ago and you are still unsure what action should be taken. Discovering your child of any age has lice is a lousy feeling as well as upsetting!

However you can prevent a full blown infestation with these steps:

Steps to Get Rid Of Lice

First of all, parents receiving notice of head lice outbreak at the daycare must not get into panic mode. This won’t help get rid of the problem but make things more difficult.

Secondly, you won’t know the extent of any infestation if you don’t conduct a thorough lice inspection. What to do?

Check Hot Spots

Don’t forget to check lice hotspots the first thing after finding out about the lice outbreak. The best spots to check for head lice are – behind the ears, part lines, and back of the neck.

Look out for tiny specks glued on an angle about 1-1/4 inches from the top of the head. Those specks are called nits or lice eggs. Conducting weekly lice inspections is recommended by Lice Busters USA…

Manual Nit and Lice Combing

Scratching and itching don’t always point towards head lice… This is why parents must wait for a physical sign before treating the scalp for head lice. Using toxic and chemical based lice removal solutions isn’t a good idea due to obvious reasons! So what can be done by parents?

Only manual nit and lice combing can remove and kill lice thoroughly – diminishing the need for an anti lice shampoos. However DIY nit and lice combing also offers uncertainty in lice removal i.e. even one left behind can grow another infestation on no time.

Using Preventative Measures

Beginning lice preventative measures will offer an additional layer protection against head lice infestation. There are many lice repel products available in the market, made from natural ingredients that can be used. However, it’s a good idea to choose alternative preventative measures such as:

  • Place hair in a tight bun, pony tail or plait before sending her off to daycare
  • Regularly inspect hair for lice nits and crawling lice
  • Don’t share headbands, ponies, and helmets/hats with other kids

Once you are sure about lice even after all these measures are taken, head towards Lice Busters USA. Be calm and call us when lice make your life difficult!

How To Clean House After Lice Infestation?

Cleaning House After Lice Infestation

Before we get into the details of what you need to do to clean your house after lice infestation, we would like to reiterate the importance of making sure your household has been successfully treated.

After all, it’s not your house that is the source of infestation.

That first louse, A-lice in wonderland, did not leisurely come crawling at your doorstep; someone in your family got infested, and it turned into a domestic epidemic.

So, yes, focus on heads first.

Everyone has received their certificate of clearance?

Great. Now we can track and hunt those lurking lice in your house – and clean it to prevent any fresh infestation.

What You Will Need?

  • A vacuum cleaner
  • Plastic bags
  • Warm and hot water
  • Natural floor cleaner
  • A household disinfectant
  • Dedication and time

Step #1: Fill Everything in Plastic Bags

Pillows, combs, hair brushes, clothing, blanket, your kids, stuffed toys, barrettes, headbands—everything that you can find—seal them in plastic bags.

And then safely store the plastic bags in a cupboard. Make sure these bags are airtight.

Step #2: Vacuuming

Start with your, and your kids’ bedroom. Vacuum the mattresses, paying close attention to the seams and crevices. Then your carpet. And swiftly move to cushions, couches and sofa sets.

Vacuum every piece of furniture—tilt them, turn them upside down.

Step #3: Mop the Floors

Prepare a dilute solution of warm water and natural floor cleaner. Use this solution to mop all the floors. Make sure you cover every corner—you never know where a louse might be hiding.

Step #4: Spray the Disinfectant

Once you have mopped the floors, spray them with a household disinfectant. Its preferable to use a disinfectant that has a pleasant fragrance—you don’t want everyone to be choking in the house.

Step #5: Take Out All the Sealed Items and Wash Them

Once the floor has dried out and you have allowed yourself enough rest, it’s time to take out all the sealed items and wash them with hot water. Items such as combs, hair brushes, barrettes etc. should be soaked in a bowl of hot water for about 1-2 minutes. Clothing, beddings and plush items should be washed in a washing machine, filled with hot water.

Dry them out and keep everything back to where it belonged.

And you are done—your house is free from lice infestation.

Too Much Hassle?

Don’t worry, Lice Busters USA has got you covered. We provide lice inspection and cleaning services to make sure your house is completely cleaned from any laid nit or a lurking louse.

Terminating The Lice Taboo In Schools

Lice taboo in schools

Schools are a place for children to learn, play and discover the world together with their peers—and therefore a place where lice fare very well. Playground tumbles, coloring in art class, having lunch—every single one of these occasions is an opportunistic moment for head lice.

That being said, it is imperative that children, parents and teachers all learn how to deal with lice. More than that, it is crucial that they know how to react to lice. One clue that a child has lice is enough to send teachers into frenzy.

A Stop To The Blame Game

Over the years, a number of academic institutions have gone as far as to enforce the controversial no-nit policy. The inherent conflicts of the rule are perfectly justifiable—lice are no one’s fault. Contrary to a ridiculous yet still remaining belief, lice have no connection to hygiene, or the condition of living.

The conjectures about a child with head lice only serve to keep them from gaining education, and depressing parents. The no-nit policy has only served reduce the burden on school nurses and teachers, not reduce lice.

Over 6 million children in the US, between the ages of 3 and 11, become victims of head lice infestations each year. It is time that as adults, parents or teachers, you zoom out and shift your perspective on head lice.

Instead of condemning a child and their parents, impart compassion. The sooner you realize that the only reason for lice was an unfortunate head-to-head contact, the sooner you can deal with a possible outbreak.

Work Through The Lice Outbreaks

Parents of children with lice should take the necessary steps to contain the spread.

  • Inform your child of their head lice, without adding in the unnecessary misconceptions.
  • Your child can still go to their school, only make sure the lice cannot get out of their head. A beanie or scarf is effective coverage.
  • If not, then make sure that your child’s hair, if long, is tied into a bun or braid. Girls are more susceptible to contracting head licethan boys, given the more voluminous locks.
  • Finally, get your child’s lice treated as soon as possible.

As far as teachers are concerned, a little arrangement is in order.

  • If they aren’t already, make sure the children are seated apart from each other. Advise them against jumbling hairs with any of their classmates.
  • It is ideal to bag up the kids’ belongings, or put them in separate cubbies, while they are at school.
  • Call in a lice screening service. Lice specialists are trained to conduct lice inspections with understanding and discretion. That way you can single out the children who have lice, and inform their parents.

All the while, it is important you maintain a sense of calm. Lice are not hazardous to health, and the children should know that.

At Lice Busters USA, we understand the ordeal faced by children, parents and teachers during a lice outbreak. For that reason, we offer lice screenings in schools and summer camps.

Participating schools also receive discount coupons for affected kids. At our lice clinic in Hollywood, Florida, we provide comprehensive and quick lice removals.

Call us at 800-403-5423 to book a screening or book a lice removal appointment today!

Dandruff? Nits? LICE? How Do I Tell?

Head Scratcher

It has happened to everyone once in their lifetime: you feel a creeping sensation in your hair, followed by a slight scalp itch which you disregard as minor irritation. However, the itch comes back, persisting, and you keep trying to soothe it with consistent scratching. Eventually you realize, with dawning horror, that this itch is no mere itch.

It is a lice itch. It is that cringe inducing critter-created itch.

A Head-Scratcher

Let’s face it: if we had to make a list of issues which would cause us to go home, huddle in a corner and vow to isolate ourselves from society forever, lice would take the top ranks. While there is no impending health hazard from head lice, the realization that anyone would spot one of our new hair guests, peeping between the locks, is truly appalling.

However, the reality is that people do not immediately realize that they have lice. Sure, constant scalp itching transpires now and then, but given deteriorating environmental conditions and the randomized climate we live in, it is often dandruff that takes toll, not lice.

But what if it really is lice?

Unfortunately, lice and dandruff are often mistaken for one another, which means that a person is either too calm for their own good, or too scared to think straight.

Fortunately, while somewhat similar, the symptoms of lice and dandruff can be distinguished.

Here Is How You Know It Is Dandruff:  

  • Dandruff does not stick to hair strands. It is flaky, and can be simply brushed off the hair with fingers or a brush.
  • The scalp appears scaly, with white to pale yellow skin, as well as slightly shiny.
  • Dandruff is present throughout the hair. You can actually spot in the top of your hair. If you run your fingers through the hair, it further rises to the surface.

And Here Is How You Know It Is Lice, Or More Specifically, Nits:

  • Nits are more consistent in appearance. Pale yellow in color and defined in shape, these cocoons stick to the hair.
  • You cannot just shake them free; the only way nits come off is if these are tugged using fingers, or combed out with a professional lice comb.
  • Nits are present near the scalp (about an inch close to the roots of the hair strands).

The most certain way to determine what invades your hair is to conduct a thorough examination. If you want to be sure, a lice screening definitely helps—an expert will find even the sneakiest of critters and nits.

At Lice Busters USA, we offer meticulous lice screenings and lice removal services. Out specialists are present at our lice clinics, or will come to your home through an appointment. In no time we will have those critters vanquished with our safe and natural lice treatment.

What are you waiting for? Call us today at (800) 405-8201 to make a lice-busting appointment. Out services are available throughout Miami, Plantation, Kendall and Broward!
