Head lice

Schools and daycare centres are favorable places for lice. Since it is difficult to prevent the appearance of lice, vigilance is a must, especially during the school year. It is recommended to regularly examine the scalp in search of lice or nits.

Lice are present throughout the year and are often part of summer camps, school playgrounds or other gatherings.
