(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.
