My son brought home a note that he's been exposed to head lice. The nurse at school checked each student exposed yesterday and will check again in a few days. At the moment there's no indication DS has been infected. We need to keep an eye out at home. However, I'm not sure really what I'm looking for. DS is 7 and has read the note the school sent home. He's itching his scalp at the mere mention of "lice." LOL! I'm not convinced watching him for scratching is a useful tip. :) When we look at his scalp - what exactly AM I looking for? what would cue us in?
His hair was recently cut and is fairly short. I know this should make it easier for us to look him over. Any other input?
