Your little one may have picked them up from an infected sibling or at daycare.

Lice are crawling insects, so they can't hop, jump, or fly, but they can travel from one head to another by direct contact.

Off the scalp, they live for a day or two and can be passed along when people share pillows, hats, and so on.

It's a myth that lice are a product of poor hygiene or poverty.

Head lice are remarkably egalitarian and can flourish in even the wealthiest communities.
