Head lice is something that most parents don’t just sit around and openly discuss. It can be an embarrassing situation, and hearing about it makes your skin crawl. Seriously, I’m itching just as I write this post!
However, with back to school season upon us, it is important that you consider head lice a possibility. Small children tend to get really close to their friends, some even sharing jackets, hats, or dress up clothing. It shouldn’t be a surprise if your son or daughter comes home from school with the pesky little bugs in his/her hair.
We have been fortunate enough not to have to deal with head lice for Sawyer. There was a bit of a breakout in his classroom last year, but he was spared. In my childhood, I wasn’t so lucky!
I didn’t get head lice from school, but during the summer – after staying in a slightly rundown hotel with my grandmother. We had taken a weekend trip to the Smoky Mountains and her and her husband paid for what may have been the cheapest hotel in the area.
Nix® Ultra & Nix® Lice Tracker
Less than a week later, my mom was purchasing a box of Nix® to get rid of the head lice. That was like 18 years ago, and I still trust the brand for anyone dealing with head lice. Why?
Because their newest product, Nix® Ultra is available over the counter and it safely kills lice and their eggs. The toxic-free formula is free of pesticides, so you can rest easy as you use this treatment on your child’s scalp.
Plus, there’s something else for this back to school season… the Nix® Lice Tracker. This is an online tool that lets schools and parents monitor lice infestations as well as report any outbreaks they are personally dealing with.
The tracker works in real time, using the information added by school nurses and parents, Google Trends data, and sales data from all lice products. This is the only data-driven lice tracker out there. I think it’s a great way to keep parents and school nurses informed of infestations in the area.
More information is available on Nix® Ultra and the Nix® Lice Tracker at NixLice.com!
