I was shocked to discover that my seven-year-old son has got head lice. I have heard that girls with long and thick hair have got a higher chance of developing head lice. But, I wonder how my son developed head lice. After talking to him for a while, I came to know that he is sitting in between two girls in the classroom. He was saying that these girls always use to scratch their head while the teacher is taking classes. He also added that he had spotted some tiny, moving creatures on their head. I think that he is speaking about head lice. He might have got head lice from these girls.
I am embarrassed about my son’s condition. I fear that our entire family will get infected with head lice. I have already booked an appointment with a clinic which provides an in home lice removal service. Is this treatment effective? Are there any natural methods to keep them away? Please share.
