This press release is to announce to readers that Advice on Lice warns parents that lice could be hiding in their child’s Halloween costume.

Kensington, MD -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/30/2017 -- It's that time of year again! Ghosts and goblins, witches, princesses, and Disney characters will be lining the neighborhood streets in search of candy. But, did you know that when you take your child to the store to try on and purchase Halloween costumes, you could also be bringing home lice? Because so many children (and adults) try on the various costumes available in stores, the spread of head lice and nits flourishes around mid to late October.

A representative of Advice on Lice talked about what parents can do to prevent the spread of lice via Halloween costumes, "Don't try wigs on at the store. Approximate the size before buying and take them home. Before actually trying on the wig or costume, keep it sealed up tightly in a plastic bag for at least 48 hours. This will kill any head lice in the wig or costume. Any costume that can be put into a dryer should be put on high heat for at least 45 minutes before wearing. For extra protection, before donning a wig put on a swim cap to create another barrier. Advice on Lice is a professional head lice treatment center that emphasizes privacy and lice eradication for our clients. If you would like to set up an appointment, call us at 240-242-4267 today."
