Pediatrics: Instructions for Mayonnaise Lice Treatment Mobile App
Head lice are common for children ages 3-12.
How does it work?
Head lice are not a health hazard and are not responsible for the spread of any disease. They are the cause of much embarrassment, misunderstanding, and many unnecessary days lost from work and school.
The goal of the Lice Treatment Instructions mobile app is to prevent the spread of lice from person-to-person contact. A head louse treatment can benefit form the use of olive oil or mayonnaise may be helpful as an additional treatment following the use of a prescription medication shampoo because it smothers and kills active head lice. When using olive oil or mayonnaise, ensure that all parts of the scalp and hair are covered and that you repeat the treatment for 3 weeks.
This head louse treatment app is available on an iPhone, iPad, or Android device. The information is stored in your GoCanvas Cloud and can be shared with other parents as a PDF.
