The School year has returned and so has the risk of your child getting head lice. The school year means your children being around more friends and classmates. In this day and age, kids are now contracting head lice because of a hidden head lice threat, selfies.
Scientists recently tested more than 200 kids and found those owning smartphones or tablets were more than twice as likely to have head lice as those without devices. This intrigued scientists so they dug a little deeper.
As selfies increase, higher rates of head lice infestations arise. Selfies provide a prime opportunity for head lice to spread as people share personal space, allowing the head lice to crawl from one head to another.
Older Children Getting Lice From Selfies
This also means that head lice infestations have increased in older children, such as those in middle school and high school. This suggests that an increased usage of the smart devices strongly correlates with an increased rate of head lice incidents. It makes sense that older children would take a selfie with their younger sibling and then create a domino effect of spreading head lice, bringing the lice from elementary school to middle school and even to high school.
The not-so-fun part about head lice being more rampant than ever before is the outbreak of super lice. Super lice are resistant to most over-the-counter lice treatments and can survive in most chemicals that were made to kill them.
