NEW YORK (PIX11) — You may want to think twice before you take your next selfie.
It could be spreading head lice among teenagers, according to the owner of Nit Free Noggins Treatment Centers.
She says she’s treating about 35 to 40% more teenage girls at her two Chicago locations.
Lice can spread, she says, when teens take group selfies.
When they touch their heads together the lice can jump from one person to the next, so avoid that.
The expert also suggests checking your child for lice weekly.
