There are head lice … and then there are Kerry’s head lice

Our practice has a policy of seeing live head lice before prescribing insecticides. This ensures that head lice treatment is only prescribed when appropriate, avoiding insecticides being ordered "just in case", and helps to regulate our prescribing budget. It also allows face-to-face health promotion and gives an opportunity to demonstrate the wet combing technique.
