Head Lice



  • The most common place to find head lice is just above the back of the neck.
  • Look for little white dots on the hair which do not come off, or buy a special detection comb which has very fine teeth. Comb gently from the roots of the hair and then look to see if you can see either nits, or the little brown lice.
  • Holding the comb over a sheet of white note paper helps you see any lice.
