Angry Head Lice

I am very annoyed at one of my daughter's friend's mom. Her daughter had head lice and she did not tell me because she was too embarrassed!! My daughter has it now..and guess who else? ME! I was itching and itching..had even mentioned it to this girls mother. She did not even tell me, "You know, check your heads because this and this". The irony is that she mentioned it finally when I called to tell her to check her own daughter.

I thought my was my usual winter itchy head until I noticed my daughter scratching away last night. I only looked a few seconds and there was a bug! Now I am cleaning and vacuuming like mad. Can the dog catch this from us too? I read that they cannot, but I wanted to be sure because someone may have another incident. I am so mad because this could have been caught at the beginning..but NO, we have to have people around with ignorant mentalities.

I have no idea if a dog can get head live. I just wanted to say that I'm sorry that happened and hope dogs don't get it and you feel more comfortable and kill all the lice soon!

She could have gotten it from school also. Every year around this time they come out. Hang mostly in the clothes, coats if the kids have cubbies next to each other. You may want to mention this to her teacher ( if she is not home schooled ) they usually send home notes if this happens. I have had this when my girls were in school. Yes , it does make me itch just thinking about it. It's worse with long hair. There are things on the shelf that should help. I found something that can be sprayed to try to deter "visitors" don't remember what the name is but it smells like licorice.
Good luck
Sandy

Nope, dogs can not get human lice.

Head lice is super common in children. I remember it going around my entire class in 2nd grade. I would notify the school, I'm sure a lot of kids in your daughter's class have it too.
