Selfies Spread Head Lice
School is in session and our kiddos are busy with homework, sports, and extracurricular activities. They’ll be around lots of friends, classmates and other kids. This is when we start to worry about head lice and educate as many families as possible. Head lice are spread most commonly through direct, head-to-head contact and in the last couple years, we’ve been concerned about a new common way to spread lice, through selfies.
How Selfies Spread Head Lice
Recently, scientists studied over 200 kids and found that those owning smartphones or tablets were more than twice as likely to have head lice as those without devices. The increase in lice infestations is a result of children taking selfies on their phones and bumping head in the process. It gives lice a perfect opportunity to move from head to head.
Selfies have also led head lice infestations to increase in older children as well, making lice a bit more common in middle school and high school than in past years. This suggests that an increased usage of the smart devices strongly correlates with an increased rate of head lice incidents. Older children may take selfies with younger children, leading to lice spreading to children of every age. This creates a domino effect as children continue to take selfies with their friends.
Although lice spread more rapidly than ever before, they are harder than ever to get rid of. Lice have evolved into super lice, making them super strong and resistant. Store-bought lice treatments are ineffective at best and harmful at worst because of their harsh chemicals and pesticides.
