Education and health chiefs in Saraburi have started a campaign to eradicate head lice after 2,300 students in nine sub-districts were found to be infected. 

 

Five thousand pupils were checked with 90% of girls in some areas infected. 

 

Phraphuttabaht district chief Pratchaya Pepatang is spearheading the drive - called "Kick Off - as the situation has got out of control and is affecting concentration levels in class, reported Sanook. 

 

A meeting was held at one school to decide the way forward and what shampoo was best to eradicate the critters and their eggs. 

 

Thaivisa notes there is some good news - schools who experience head lice among pupils often state to embarrassed parents that it is a "known fact" that head lice prefer clean hair.
