Did you know that according to a study conducted by the Department of Education (DepEd) and the University of the Philippines pediculosis or head lice is considered as the second most common health problem in public schools in the Philippines next to tooth decay?
Head lice or "kuto" infestation is still a widespread condition in the country, but not enough attention goes into preventing and eliminating the persistent ailment. That's why Lamoiyan Corporation's Licealiz Head Lice Treatment Shampoo continues the battle against the public concerns dubbed as Kilusang Kontra Kuto (KKK) Year 3 held at Bagong Silangan Elementary School.

This year's KKK, Lamoiyan Corporation has partnered once again with the Department of Education, University of the Philippines College of Public Health, Drugstores Association of the Philippines, and Mommy Bloggers Philippines.
What are Head Lice?
- are tiny flat insects about the size of a sesame seed
- live on the human scalp and feed on blood several times a day (several.times.a.day!)
- vary in color but appear darker in the hair
- usually survive for less than 2 days away from the scalp at normal room temperature, ang their eggs cannot hatch at an ambient temperature lower than that near the scalp
- most often found on the warmer areas of the body - sa likod ng tainga, sa likod ng ulo at leeg ( behind the ears and back of head and neck)
- common among kids but anyone can acquire it
- itching common, especially at night
- tickling or feeling of something moving in the hair
- some people have NO SYMPTOMS
- scalp irritation
- bacterial infection
- absenteeism (for the kids most especially)
- embarrasment or stigma
TREATMENT ( advised only if lice or live nits are found)
- check all family members
- only family members with live lice or live nits should be treated
- having head lice once DOES NOT protect someone from getting it again
