Itching is the first sign. If you notice that your son or daughter is often scratching his or her scalp, combing through the hair is the best way to find lice. This is an important step before you start the treatment. Check the dry hair for lice with a fine-toothed lice comb. Search for lice lock by lock. Look particularly closely at the roots, behind the ears and at the neckline. These are favourite spots for lice and their eggs. Rinse the comb in tepid soapy water after use to avoid further infestation. Do not worry if you find live lice, Elimax® is extremely effective. As lice reproduce very rapidly, we advise you to start the treatment without delay. Also do not forget to inform your child's school about the infestation.
