If you’ve been in a grocery store or retail store lately, you may have noticed the holiday cheer with the sound of Christmas music playing softly through the speakers. This is a sure sign that the holidays are quickly approaching.
This is a common time for family gatherings, delicious home-cooked meals, time off work or school (hopefully), and lots of visitors. Unfortunately, it’s also a peak time for head lice. With families visiting a lot more than usual and with the kiddos attending more sleepovers than usual, it’s a prime time for lice to spread.
In addition to regular head checks, it’s important to be on the lookout for symptoms of an active head lice infestation. An itchy scalp, rash on the neck, or even sleeplessness, could all be signs of an infestation.
If you’re unsure what you‘re looking for, visit Lice Clinics of Canada for a professional head screening. We offer same-day appointments and are open seven days a week. It’s the best way to have peace of mind that everyone in your household is lice free, especially with the holidays coming up.
Often, people think they have headlice but a professional screening reveals it’s just dandruff, dry skin, or sometimes even dirt.
