In the United States, head lice infestation occurs most commonly in school-aged children while attending daycare, school, or after school social and sport programs.
We are told that between 6-12 million people annually become infested with lice, however, we believe this statistic to be higher for the following reasons: 1) most health departments do not require reporting lice infestations, so the data is rough at best, and 2) there’s a misconceived notion that lice of any kind is related to uncleanliness and poor personal hygiene, so families fail to report the infestation to school officials or doctors.
Girls are at higher risk of head lice infestation than boys because of their tendency to have more close and physical head-to-head contact. Selfies! The sharing of hats, scarves, combs, brushes, hair ties also plays a substantial role in the transfer of lice.
Our concluding blog post - Management of an Infestation will come out tomorrow. Thanks for reading and look forward to your comments.
