My daughter went to a sleepover last Friday. On Tuesday the child who hosted the party went home from school with lice. Should I be worried?
So Friday was the sleepover and the friend was diagnosed with lice on Tuesday. My daughter was checked for lice at school on Tuesday and was clear. I'm feeling paranoid though. Every time I see her itch (or if I do) I get worried.
I'm wondering how long I need to be worried. If the friend came down with lice on Tuesday should I assume she had it on the preceding Friday? If so, should I check my daughter for a full 21- 30 days?
