Now that the kids are back in school, a heads up for parents to keep a close eye on their child’s noggin.
FOX News Radio’s Jennifer Keiper has today’s “Housecall for Health”:
An itchy head…and it turns out to be lice. Ohio dermatologist Dr. Bob Haber says the bugs don’t discriminate:
“Head lice has nothing to do with hygiene. It has nothing to do with income.”
Dr. Haber says one bug can lay a lot of eggs quickly, so avoid sharing hats and combs. Treatments involve prescription or over-the-counter medications, and usually a fine-tooth comb to pull out the nits, which are usually close to the scalp and look like small yellow or brown dots before they hatch.
