Advice sheet for treating headlice

  Additional ‘tips’ for treating headlice from the school health team:

  • metal comb instead of plastic. (finer)
  • Check and re-check hair.
  • Treatments can be obtained free of charge if parents sign up for the minor aliments scheme at a participating pharmacy e.g Tesco, Leyland
  • Headlice Prevention spray which can be obtained from B and M/Home Bargains etc for a couple of pounds and is basically tea tree oil as the base. There is very little evidence to support that this deters headlice but then again there is very little evidence conducted relating to headlice - some parents have found it to be beneficial when used daily.
  • Hair to be tied up! Anyone with hair longer than shoulder length hair I would advise should be in plaits or a bun/pinned up to best avoid headlice transfer because even if hair is in a ponytail this will still potentially touch other children's hair during play.
  • Any dressing up clothes/hats to be washed regularly
  • Winter hats - lice can live for 24 hours off the host so if winter hats are stored in the same box it is possible for these to transfer to other children.
