About this service
Headlice are very common in children and their families. There isn't any known way of effectively preventing catching lice. The symptoms of head lice are having an itchy scalp and feeling as though something is moving through your hair, however, the only way to confirm an infection is by finding lice.
The best way to do this is by combing the hair thoroughly with a detection comb. If headlice and eggs are found on one person, everyone at home should be checked to prevent reinfection. There are several medicated lotions that can be applied to hair to kill lice which can speed up the process of delousing.
If you do not pay for your prescriptions, you may be entitled to free head lice treatment.
Please ask any member of our pharmacy team who can help you find and correct an effective and suitable treatment option for you and your family.
