Methods : How to Rid Lice

So the bugs have paid you an unpleasant visit?  How to rid lice depends on how serious the problem has become.  Lice are small insect like parasites that annoy us humans by feeding on our blood.  They're not much different than fleas on our pets, just a different type of parasite. There are some effective ways and remedies as to how to rid lice ranging from chemical products, to simple home remedies like mayonnaise. Again it all depends on the individual and ones personal taste. you may want to integrate a combination of treatments. Be aware that combinations of chemicals are not recommended, as chemical lice treatments combined can be very harmful.

It's vital that treatment for lice remains urgent and that you should  report them as soon as they make their presence,  especially with school-age children. Many people notice head lice because they experience a head rash and itching. Upon close inspection, lice eggs known as nits are revealed around the roots of the hair. Lice treatment involves both killing the adult lice and ensuring that the nits do not hatch. Since nits incubate for around a week, any successful treatment will last at least a week, with two week treatments being much more common.

Lice shampoos often contain insecticides which are designed to specifically attack lice and nits that are about to hatch.  Make sure that the product you use does not cause you any allergies. Check the product carefully for this before using them. Keep in mind that these products are  not recommended for children under two, and they should be kept away from pets. Some insecticides are highly toxic for household pets, and a small dosage could be fatal. If you choose to use a lice shampoo, follow the directions carefully, and combine it with regular combing, which some people believe is the most crucial element in lice removal. Do use more shampoo than is recommended, as this can be dangerous, and if you are combining medicated shampoo and natural treatments, start with the shampoo.

 Dump the combings onto a paper towel which can be burned or flushed afterwards. Even after a lice infestation, combing a few days a week is an excellent idea.

How else might you rid lice?  You can also try applying oil or Vaseline overnight. This will suffocate the adult head lice and condition the patient's hair to a silky shine. Rinse with shampoo several times if after the first time the results aren't sufficient and combing is still required. Some essential oils also help with head lice; try tea tree oil and eucalyptus oil, both of which are natural and mild insecticides

The Head Lice FAQ

Head lice have become a common phenomenon in the United States. The majority of victims affected by head lice are school children. Extra care should be taken when the person infected by head lice is a small child. Here is a 'stop head lice' FAQ, which will help you get rid of head lice.
  • 1. What is the minimum period for the head lice symptoms to start?
    It usually takes about two to three weeks for the person to detect the presence of head lice in their scalps and the symptoms to start.

  • 2. What are the most common head lice symptoms?
    The first symptom of head lice is the continuous itching in your scalp at the back of your head and around the ears. If you experience a constant itching on your scalp, you must check for the presence of head lice or nits (lice eggs). Since lice are tiny and it is difficult to spot them, it will be better if you check your hair in broad daylight.
    3. How do lice spread?
    Head lice spread mainly when a person comes in direct contact with another person who has a lice infestation. It can also spread when you share towels, hats, combs or helmets of a person who have lice. Head lice also spread if you share a pillow or bed sheet while sleeping close to a person with lice infestation.
    4. Can head lice spread diseases?
    Unlike popular beliefs, head lice are not dangerous and do not spread diseases. However, head lice are highly contagious and their presence in your scalp can cause persistent itching. Itching leads to scratching of the head and rigorous scratching can lead to skin infection and bleeding of the scalp.
    5. How can a person prevent a head lice infestation?
    The best way to prevent someone from getting a life infestation is to avoid sharing clothes, hats, helmets, hairbrushes or combs with a person who is infected with head lice. Generally, kids are more prone to get head lice infestation from others. You must educate your children not to share thing with others.
    6. Are lice susceptible to heat?
    Yes, lice are very vulnerable to heat. Lice despise dry heat. You can get rid of lice by putting your hats, towels and clothes in a hot dryer for about 20 minutes before using it. The heat could kill the lice and the lice eggs (nits).
    7. What all are the products can be used to treat child with lice infestation?
There are many over-the-counter drugs available in the market. However, most of the drugs contain chemical ingredients and can cause harm to your child's scalp. It is better to use natural products like apple cider vinegar, mayonnaise, olive oil or green tea oil treatments. The natural remedies don't cause any side effects and help you get rid of lice quickly. Avoid buying a head lice treatment that is not recognized by the National Pediculosis Association (NPA), as it can lead to serious consequences for your child's head or scalp.
