Scratch scratch. Scratch. Your childs head is feeling really itchy. Could it be lice? If so, you're not alone. Every year, between 6 and 12 million people worldwide get head lice. Most of those millions are kids. Any kid who goes to school has probably already heard about lice. They can spread easily at schools, so if one kid gets them, the rest of the class might get them, too. Look at the attached sheet for advise on what can you do.
