Are Kids Getting Lice From Selfies?


Our kids are often around their classmates and friends, whether they are playing outside, taking a nap or taking part in a popular modern past time: taking selfies.

Study About Selfies

We hope your kids don’t come home with lice but a recent study shows that selfies may increase their chances. Scientists recently studied over 200 kids and found that those who own smartphones or tablets were more than twice as likely to have lice than those electronic devices. More studying led to the discovery that taking selfies is responsible for the correlation between owning a smartphone or tablet and getting head lice. It makes sense because head lice are spread through head-to-head contact and that often happens when snapping a selfie. A group of kids getting close together is the prime opportunity for lice to crawl from head to head.

This has also led to older children getting lice as well. Perhaps they take a selfie with their younger siblings and their friends, which then gives them lice and they go to school and take a selfie with their friends. Selfies create a domino effect of spreading head lice.

Super Lice

Most lice infestations nowadays comprise of super lice, meaning they are super resistant to store-bought, over-the-counter treatments. They have mutated and become immune to pesticides that used to kill lice easily. Lice treatments that you buy at the drugstore are ineffective at best and harmful at worst as studies continue to discover harmful side-effects.
