Head lice are tiny bugs that feed on blood from the human scalp. An infestation of head lice is widespread among children who get lice from direct contact with someone who already has head lice. Most first-world countries have a rule about children who have lice. If a child has lice, they can't come to school until they have a note from someone who checks for lice that they no longer have lice. Sadly, in Israel, the rules are not strict, and lice are prevalent among children.
Disclosure – you may start feeling itchy from reading the symptoms. Don't worry, it's psychological, and you probably don't have lice!
The simplest way to treat head lice is to comb out your hair and remove them from your scalp. It would be best if you bought a special lice comb which has very tightly spaced combs.
Once you comb through your hair and find all of the lice, try to keep your hair up in a ponytail or bun. For children, try to keep their hair in a high ponytail or bun.
Headlice is very annoying but easily treated. All you can do is take precautions and check your child for lice regularly (once a week or so).

The next morning, Ema Care gave my daughter a telehealth exam and provided her with prescriptions, as well as a list of...
