Itch'em our head lice mascot

The Environmental Health team can visit schools with Itch'em to give students a fun, interactive and educational presentation on head lice. This session includes fascinating pictures of head lice, a short video and easy-to-understand information about how to treat and prevent head lice. We aim to encourage discussion with question and answer time as well as clearing up common myths. 

If you wish to extend the program, our staff are available to provide assistance to school head lice screening days and work with parents about the best treatment options.

The Environmental Health team has also proved that using hair spray/gel on the hair every day is an effective way of preventing head lice.
