    the real truth about pesty head lice   there is much misinformation regarding head lice and its treatment. here are some answers to some common questions taken from "school health alert", an authoritative medical and scientific newsletter designed to give factual updated health information to the school community.   will a child easily get head lice from furniture, bus seats or sharing a hat?  head lice will not survive past 6-20 hours without a human scalp as it is a human parasite. they are rarely if ever transferred by furniture or chairs, but may be transferred by items with more direct head contact like brushes, pillows, towels and hats if immediately shared. by far the largest transmission route of first infestation and reinfestation remains to be head to head contact within close family or community groups. it is unnecessary to scrub the house or spray expensive insecticides. vacuuming of furniture and car seats is more than enough. hot water washing of all items directly exposed to the infected person's head like bed linens, towels and pajamas is recommended. non-washables may be bagged for two days. soak brushes and combs in alcohol or hot water with detergent for one hour or discard these items. and, of course, check and treat all actively infested persons in the household or close family contacts such as friends sleeping over. make sure the treatment is medically approved and only use products according to the package directions. assistance to manually comb out dead lice and their eggs with a lice comb is needed and may take a while!! an infested person will need help combing by someone who is taking the time to do it correctly.   how do i know my child even has head lice?  this is a common problem! of those who think they have lice, 42% have neither or its eggs (nits). eighty-five percent of the time teachers find current or past head lice infestations, but only half of those are live cases that need treatmen
