Head lice are one of the most disgusting parasites that host on humans. They are extremely contagious and can easily spread from person to person. If someone at school or work has head lice, it is nearly impossible for you to not get it.

If you have them, don’t lose hope, there are ways to get rid of them, although it will take time and effort.

1. The very first thing he can do is make sure that you dry clean everything that cannot be washed in the washing machine. This will kill the live lice and the eggs that might be on your clothing.

2. Another thing you should definitely consider is washing all your clothes in very hot water and then running them through a hot cycle in your dryer. Again, this will make sure that you get rid of those stinky parasites effectively.

3. Also before you do any of the above, you have to make sure that you get rid of the lice in your own hair. Now, this is difficult, but if you go see a doctor, they will be able to recommend to you some over-the-counter medications which you will be able to use successfully. There is no point in getting rid of lice on your clothing if you still have it in your hair.

It is important for you to remember that if a two-year-old or a younger child is infected with lice, you should not treat them with any medicine whatsoever. Instead, you should get rid of the lice by hand. How do you do that?

It’s simple.

All you have to do is take a fine tooth comb and wet it. If you comb your child’s hair with a wet comb, the lice will be temporarily immobilized, which will make it very easy for you to remove them.

After you get rid of all of them, you should still check your child care every four days just to make sure that there is not any new lice present.

4. The last thing I want you to pay close attention to as you try to get rid of lice, is vacuuming everything in your house. I don’t mean only carpets although it is important to vacuum them as well, but you should not neglect your furniture. If you have any upholstered furniture, make sure your vacuum it carefully. This applies both to your home and to your car.

Remember that lice tend to migrate from the head to the furniture, and if someone uses out furniture later, those bugs will actually jumped back onto the person’s head, so again, be careful.

Getting rid of lice is a challenge especially if a child is infected, but if you follow the tips above, I can promise you that you will be successful.
