According to the article on The Health Site, “head lice spreads from person to person by close contact or through direct hair to hair contact. They cannot hop or fly but can crawl very fast and go from one scalp to the other.”

The article goes on to identify other indirect ways that lice can spread which include:

“…sharing personal things like combs, hair bands, headscarves, hats etc.” And by “…using common items like bed sheets, pillows, and towels with someone who has lice on the scalp.”

Dr. Michael Gabriel, of GPM Pediatrics, offers his feedback on the tips given in the article. “Although it may be true that lice do not spread disease, they can still cause a lot of problems for children. One of the biggest problems may be that the excessive scratching can lead to a scalp infection. This is why these tips are so important for parents. Lice need to be removed as quickly as possible for the ongoing health of children.”
