Help families manage and move on.
In addition to effective head lice treatment, the following strategies are necessary to reduce caregiver strain and stigmas:2
Educate caregivers about head lice transmission to decrease negative behavioral immune system responses (e.g., fear, disgust, avoidance).1,2
- Increase understanding of the potential effects persistent head lice can have on the family
- Validate parents’ struggle by respectfully offering education on the causes of infestation, treatment options available, and recommendations for treatment support and appropriate dialogue
Work with school districts to define and adopt head lice policies that are more inclusive.2
With Natroba™ as their first-line of defense, parents potentially avoid lost days at work (and children potentially avoid lost days at school), and reduce the possibility of re-infestation to families or friends.3
