1.   Knowing causes
Knowing the types of lice and what causes them will keep you on your toes. Also knowing how they are spread will ensure you are more careful. There are three types of lice; head lice, pubic lice and body lice. The first two are transmitted from one person to another while body lice come about as a result of poor hygiene. Head lice tends to affect children the most as they share items a lot. In that way, a lice carrier transmits the lice to a healthy person. You should warn your children about sharing items such as combs. You should also abstain to prevent transmission of pubic lice.
2.   Knowing symptoms
When you know the signs and symptoms of lice infestation, you will be able to get rid of the lice before they spread. A lice outbreak is highly unlikely to go away on its own. It needs rigorous treatment. You should research on the signs and symptoms and also educate your child on the same. Should they notice a carrier, they will know what precautions to take to avoid infection. When you are washing and combing your child’s hair, be on the lookout to see if they have any.
3.   Hygiene
Seeing as body lice has mostly to do with hygiene, keeping clean should be a priority. Ensure that your place of residence is always cleaned regularly. Change your beddings at least on a weekly basis. You also need to shower regularly with soap and remember to wash your hair as well. Find out the areas of your household where lice are likely to breed waiting for someone to latch on. Do deep cleaning and vacuuming of such areas as often as once a month to keep the away.
4.   Correct products
There has been an emergence of products that can be used to prevent lice. These can be quite helpful. However, be careful not to use products that are too strong as they are likely to cause harm to your skin and scalp. Instead, choose the correct product that will work for your skin and scalp. It is mostly the smell of the products that keeps the smell away. Instead of drowning yourself in chemicals, you can try out some natural remedies. These include tea tree oil, coconut oil, eucalyptus oil, rosemary oil and even menthol. Don’t overuse. You can add them to your shampoo, conditioner and even some body butters.
