Each year millions of school-aged children in the United States get head lice. The following information from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) will help you check for, treat, and prevent the spread of head lice.
Please note two things about these articles on Head Lice:
- They DO mention that you should contact your pediatrician if you have questions or concerns. Although we do NOT encourage bringing your child with head lice into our offices, we are nevertheless always happy to answer any question you have and give medical advice over the phone.
- They DO NOT mention anything about outside companies that charge exorbitant fees to check for, treat, or clear head lice. We do not recommend or endorse any private business that purports to do so. Likewise, we do not write referrals to any such business.
