Head Lice Control

Need help with head lice? We have a team of people who can help carry out checks or give you advice to combat these critters.

Head lice are common in young children, especially at primary school. Head lice move between heads without discrimination.,Anyone can become infested – including adults.

If you think your child has got head lice from school, let the school know. 

You can buy lotions and shampoos to treat head lice at some supermarkets and local pharmacies. Follow the directions on the bottle. Once the lice are treated, go through the hair with a fine tooth comb to remove any eggs. This minimises the chance of re-infestation.

Our Environmental Health Officers are also available to carry out head lice checks - just get in touch to make an appointment.
