Head lice

If you or the school nurse finds lice in your child's hair, eradicate them with an over-the-counter preparation bought from a chemist.


Comb your child's hair every night, strand by strand, with a fine-toothed comb until you are sure there are no more lice and you have combed out all their eggs. To prevent a recurrence, tell the child not to share combs, hats or earphones with her friends at school.
