Below you will information about checking your child for head lice as well as treatment information if your child does have a head lice infestation. Do not treat your child for head lice or the environment unless you see nits (eggs) or head lice. What to look for Adult lice are small (about the size of a sesame seed). Eggs (nits) are usually found firmly attached to the base of the hair shaft. Lice stay near the scalp, often behind the ears, near the neckline, and back of the head. Head lice hold tightly to the hair. They move by crawling. They cannot hop or fly (they do not have wings), but do move quickly making it difficult to find in a child’s hair.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
