Every.parents.nightmare. The mere thought of head lice causes my scalp to suddenly get itchy and my skin to feel like it’s crawling with these creepy crawlies. I feel infested nooooo! They appear seemingly out of nowhere and do not discriminate. If you’re human and have hair on your head, you’re in their sights (shudders). Thankfully they aren’t interested in your pets and more good news, they don’t jump they crawl and are transferred only by direct contact and from sharing grooming tools, personal items or from physical contact. Lice also don’t carry any bacteria or viruses.
