Talking to Others about Head Lice

The topic of head lice is usually not the most popular subject, though it is a necessary one. Head lice is spread most easily between friends, family, schoolmates, and team members. The following are a few tips on how to talk to others about head lice:

1. Simply, decide to just do it. We know that talking to others about head lice is not on the top of anyone’s list of things to do but it doesn’t have to be when there is an outbreak. In fact, we recommend talking about head lice with friends before any outbreaks occur. That way, everyone is more knowledgeable and hopefully feel more comforted that they are not alone when someone in their family comes home with head lice.

2. Learn the lice facts. Have some facts to bring to the table. Some people are scared of head lice without knowing anything about them. Fact...head lice are harmless and infestations very easily treatable! Check out “Lice Info” and "FAQs" tabs at the top of the page for more information.

3. Make a plan. As well as talking about how head lice are spread or ways to prevent head lice, also make a plan for when there is an infestation. It's a good idea to discuss a plan for telling others when head lice have been discovered. Then, no one is caught off-guard. Take into consideration your school’s lice policy and know your local head lice specialists, such as Liceinators, and don’t hesitate to contact us with questions or to book an appointment online.

4. Email notification letter. At Liceinators, we offer to send anonymous notifications to those who may be affected but would not take well to a phone call or face-to-face conversation about head lice. You are welcome to use our Lice Alert Letter which is free for you to copy, making it easy to alert anyone in your community about a head lice infestation.
