Head lice in children, preschoolers

This is Lesov’s oblique Tula master easily shoeing the louse, but many parents can not only cope with pediculosis, and even see in time the presence of this disease in a child.

The point is not that they are bad parents, but that the louse itself is very difficult to detect on the hair part of the head. And it becomes clear to many that their child has lice after nits (white lice eggs) appear, with which not only hair but also eyelashes are covered.

Who can get head lice


Pediculosis can become infected and neat well-groomed child, who often washes his hands and watches his neat appearance. It’s enough to be in close contact with a sick person, most often this happens during a group meeting of children.

So, this school year in the preschool department at the lingo-aesthetic gymnasium in which I work, there was an outbreak of lice. The name of the institution speaks for itself.

The children here are all from well-to-do families, you will never see them with collar-blackened shirts or uncombed hair. However, on the day we found 2-3 new sick children in each group, who were immediately taken away from school.

Medical workers strictly monitored the heads of the children and examined them in the morning and evening. Because our preschool department works full day, there are sofas for comfortable stay of children in the corridor and cabinets, and carpets are in the bedrooms, and the beds on which they can quietly wait for their high point eggs lice left by their sick child.

Many educators have sinned in search of a guilty outbreak of pediculosis at a visiting photographer who took pictures of children to be released from kindergarten. Now, probably, many will think: And what did he bring in a box or something?

No, he simply wore a comb in the pocket of his shirt, which, if necessary, he trimmed the hair of the children. Naturally, he didn’t process this comb and didn’t even wash after each child, besides our kindergarten and school were not the only ones on his list.

So it turned out that the photographer, without knowing it, and of course, not pursuing evil intentions, may have become a carrier of lice.

Lice Control Measures


Our doctors urgently reproduced instructions, recommendations that were distributed to parents and reported on the need for daily inspection of the hair of the child’s head after arriving from kindergarten. When identifying at least one nits or louses, it was necessary to use Pedillin’s pediculosis shampoo and a special hair comb that can be bought at each pharmacy.

It was also recommended, if possible, to process all the things with which the head of the sick child touched: hair bands, hats, scarves, jackets and sweaters with hoods, towels, pillowcases, sheets. They need to be washed in hot water and dried by hot drying (ironed on both sides with a hot iron).

Those things that can not be washed (sofas, pillows, chairs, carpets, soft toys, mattresses) should be vacuumed or dry-cleaned. Moreover, after removing the dust bag from the vacuum cleaner, pack it in a plastic bag and only then throw it into the bin.

After treatment with such anti-pediculosis remedies, the child’s head should be monitored for another ten days, in order to accurately confirm the release of nits and lice. Particular attention should be paid to the skin near the neck and behind the ears.

If after a course of treatment the lice reappeared, then the treatment with drugs can be repeated only ten days later.

Prevention of pediculosis


Of course, the prevention of pediculosis in children requires special attention from parents to their child, but the child himself must understand the risk of infection and in no case should he give other children to use his hairbrushes, headphones, hairpins, hats!
