7 Head Lice Treatment Products For Kids

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), each year in the United States about 6 -12 million head lice infestations occur among children 3 to 11 years of age.

Infestation is most common among preschool and elementary school-age children as well as their household members and caretakers.

Getting head lice has nothing to do with the cleanliness of the person or the environment around them. It is mainly spread by direct contact with the hair of an infested person and the most common way to get head lice is by head-to-head contact with a person who already has head lice. This is of course more prevalent among children who play together at school, home or during sports activities.

There are many treatments on the market to help rid of these parasites and we’ve rounded up a few of the best:
