    Lice can be  very disturbing pest. It can be really difficult to control the spread of lice infestation in a school environment. Therefore, I do not blame schools which use preventative measures to ensure the spread of lice is reduced. However, I believe such examinations should not be conducted openly, to save the child from stigmatization.

      I agree with you, if the school remains firm in its decision to follow the No Nits policy, it must at least make sure that it is carried out with meticulousness and respecting the privacy and dignity of each student in a discreet environment.

    Hi Dr. Alfonso,

    Pediculosis might be a life threatening infection but it us a discomforting one at that and can hinder one from living a comfortable or make one uncomfortable in public. However, the No Nit Policy us just going to far. It consumes too much time and that adversely affects the kids. 

    I enjoyed reading this article. It is very comprehensive. Nice job.

    Thanks for writing this article on How to prevent lice according to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP).i find the article so full of information and educative things to know about lice. One of the things I know about lice is that it is better to prevent it than to allow it happen because I discover most of the time the cause of it is lack of proper hygiene 

    • Dr. Alfonso Carreon dice:

      There are a large number of cases where lack of hygiene is not the essential factor of pediculosis.

      Many times they are transmitted in spotless people, and the reason is that the louse does not distinguish between dirt or cleanliness but looks for the blood of the scalp on which it feeds.

    Informative article! It is true that there are various myths or misconceptions that need to be corrected around this issue but the information is so redundant both on the internet and outside of it that there should be so much trouble in achieving it. The essential prevention I really take note of, is avoiding as much as possible any contact of the head of someone who does not suffer pediculosis with the head or objects of personal use of a person who does. What I really find helpful is the that some studies have shown that only nits are found in the hair, and only about 20% of the children that carry them develop mature lice, which I will take serious as to wash my hair regularly and tell my junior ones in the house also as to maintain proper personal hygiene. Thanks for Sharing.

    Dear DR. Alfons,

    May I not congratulate you on your persistence in creating this helpful post. Any man who devotes that much time must of necessity make discoveries of great value to others and you certainly did it.

    Marie Curie quote is an eye-opener and made me to think deep on this subject.

    This post means a lot to me because my wife struggles with this problem (Head Lice) and in order to help her I watched many Youtube videos and tried few things still she struggles.

    Prevention is better than cure and thanks a lot for the prevention methods.

    May I ask…

    Is that lice intake blood as their food? 

    By applying Neem paste on the head will kill the lice?

    Please advice.

    Much Success!
