A 1/3 A4-sized folded z-leaflet aimed at parents that explains the facts about head lice, their detection and treatment.  It reinforces the message that treatment is only needed when a thorough check detects live lice.  Insecticide lotion, rinse, mousse or shampoo should never be used preventatively - doing this may help the lice to become resistant to treatment. 2015 version.   Leaflet should be issued with 1HYG/004/COM - Head Lice/Nit Detection Comb. This leaflet is also available in Polish as a pdf download from the following link:  http://www.healthscotland.com/documents/25.aspx
