Whether your child is starting camp, coming home from camp, or getting ready to start school, you'll want to get her checked for head lice—even if you don’t think your child is showing symptoms of having head lice. The biggest sign that your child might have head lice is if he’s itching his head a lot (that itching is an allergic reaction to the lice’s saliva). When you’re ready to get your child checked for head lice, visit a head lice removal specialist on Long Island. Professionals are able to diagnose head lice and use specific techniques to rid your child of the bugs. (Trying to remove head lice at home is a very tedious process and may not be 100-percent effective at removing bugs, nits, and eggs.) These head lice specialists can advise you on what cleaning measures to take at home, but the most important thing to remember is to reassure your child that she’s not dirty. In fact, head lice love clean hair! So if you’re worried about lice, visit a lice removal specialist in Nassau or Suffolk counties.
