Head Louse Treatment Video - Good Place To Start
(Household Management 101)
Here is a head louse treatment video that I thought was helpful, even though I do not agree with everything that was stated in it.
I'll start off by saying that I do not believe that insecticidal shampoos are good to use
, or that they should be used when treating a head lice infestation, and the video (although with great caution) suggests using such head lice shampoo.
I think using these shampoos too quickly and too often has created "superlice"
which are resistant to the insecticides in them meant to kill them.
However, despite this fact I believe it is helpful and well made, especially when you are need of a good overview of information about head louse treatment.
Here are the points in the video that I especially thought were helpful:
- It emphasized that head lice are highly contagious, so if one person in your home has them everyone in the home needs to be checked for them.
- I liked the suggestion to use a well-lit room, or outdoors, to check for head lice. The lice, and their eggs, can be difficult to see and I found that natural sunlight helps you see them better.
- I appreciated that they emphasized you must comb through the hair of any infected person every single day, with a louse comb, for 2 weeks to make sure the infestation does not reoccur and to continue removing any lice or nits you find.
- The suggestion to wash all clothes, linens, etc. that have come into contact with the infected person with hot water is good too. I believe they should have added to dry in hot dryer also though.
Here is the video about head louse treatment for all the details.
