Your Kid's Halloween Costume Is Probably Teeming With Head Lice

Be on the lookout for head lice lurking in Halloween costumes

Some news you'll definitely want to hear before heading out to buy Halloween costumes this year. It's not a sign of poor hygiene. "And a lot of people don't give much thought into the fact that several people could've tried it on before them", Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Cherie Sexton told the station.

Scratching your head trying to find the flawless Halloween costume?

Never try on a mask in a store without wearing a bathing cap over your hair. He adds that if a mask or costume doesn't look like it's clean or well-kept, don't risk it. The conclusion becomes even more ghoulish when you think of how many people may have tried on your mask or wig in the store before you bought it.

"Most moms, dads and grandparents are just trying to get that right costume".

Just make sure it's dryer safe or simply do what Mary Brito plans to do. The tiny pest can only last for 48 hours without oxygen.

Sexton recommends being selective when trying on costumes, and wearing a swim cap when trying on wigs and masks, to create a head lice barrier.

Another suggestion is to toss the costume in your dryer for 45 minutes, the heat will also kill lice.

Alvina Kweh experts there will be some germs on Halloween costumes, and teaches her kids how to prevent spreading them.
