Step 1: Check your whole family for head lice  

  • Check all family members for lice and nits
  • Consider calling your doctor right away to set up an appointment and get treatment advice and guidance
  • If you suspect any family members have lice, it's a good idea to take them to the doctor as well

Step 2: See your doctor  

  • Ask about treatment options
  • Pick up the prescription from the pharmacy
  • Make sure you understand exactly how to use the medication before leaving the pharmacy

Step 3: Remove lice from your house

    • Pillows/bed linens
    • Stuffed animals
    • Hats
    • Scarves
    • Helmets
    • Clothes
  • Machine-wash all washable items in hot water (130°)3
  • Seal items that can't be washed in plastic bags for 2 weeks3

Step 4: Share the info  

  • Call parents of children who may have been in close contact with yours2
  • Cancel all sleepovers and play dates until you're sure your child is lice free3
  • Notify your child's school2

Step 5: Don't bug out  

  • Take a deep breath
  • Reassure your child that it's OK
  • Help your child understand that it's not their fault. Anyone can get lice, no matter how clean their hair or house is or where they live, go to school, or play

Head lice happens. If your child is diagnosed with head lice, don't bug out. Stay calm, and use a doctor-prescribed head lice treatment.
