Health Tip: Treating Head Lice Safely

(HealthDay News) -- More than 6 million American children aged 3 to 11 get head lice each year. Because children often play closely, lice can travel from child to child.

For children with head lice, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration advises parents:

  • Apply treatment products only to the scalp.
  • After rinsing the product from the scalp, remove dead lice with a fine-toothed comb.
  • Speak with a pediatrician to ensure the treatment is appropriate for the child's age and weight.
