The Facts of Lice - Prevention

Kids Heads Together LiceGuard

Avoid lice altogether.

Children and parents can take many step to prevent getting head lice in the first place.

  • Avoid head-to-head contact with others who may have head lice. Unfortunately, it is hard to tell whether somebody else has lice, so it is best to avoid head-to-head contact with other children whenever possible.
  • Avoid sharing clothing, hats, helmets, combs, or towels with others who may have head lice. This is especially common in daycare, schools, sporting activities, camps, and sleepovers.
  • Avoid sharing beds, bedding, pillows, couches, or chairs with others who may have head lice.
