Here's how to deal with it. Take action: Rest assured that personal hygiene and socio-economic status have nothing to do with head lice. Head lice are simply a nuisance affecting many children, but they are not known to cause any physical harm or pain. The most common lice treatment is over-the-counter or prescription shampoos or lotions that must be applied to the scalp, left on for a specified time and then rinsed off. Often a fine-toothed comb is also needed to remove nits (lice eggs) to prevent further infestation. Ask your pharmacist for a treatment recommendation. 0 More: Daily Dose: This is why your vanilla or cinnamon flavoured e-cigarette is toxicHealth-in-Motion advertisement Other news Parenting Here's how doctors are helping babies who can't sweat Medical Artificial sweeteners won't affect your blood sugar Medical 5 foods that can cause constipation Diet and nutrition ‘I lost 9kg by making one simple change – here’s what I did’ Medical Going for an op?
