Parents, if your child was exposed to head lice during Summer camp, symptoms can be hidden for over a month. If the hair is thick, perhaps even longer! This is a perfect environment for lots of head-to-head contact (which is the primary culprit for getting the little buggers). Camp staff are not trained to identify and remove lice correctly. Itching is not always the first sign of an existing infestation. If not properly treated in a timely manner, what may have been a smaller nuisance in the late Summer/early Fall, can evolve into a Holiday Season nightmare for the entire family.
