Selfies Are Spreading Head Lice

Selfies Are Spreading Head Lice
Posted February 26th, 2014 @ 9:46am

Who doesn’t love to take a selfie?? Selfies are just the norm nowadays. Some people take selfies everyday! But taking a selfie has some risks… head lice. Really though?

Marcy McQullian who works at Nitless Noggins said, “Head lice are spread through head-to-head contact. Lice don’t jump or fly, so you actually have to touch heads.”

I guess that makes sense. When you take a selfie with someone and you lean in close to them and your heads touch, lice can be passed.
