  • Beware of Health Issues with Halloween Costumes

It may be your costume that's making you itch ― from head lice.

Wondering what you're going to dress as this Halloween?

Doctors say they see a jump in lice this time of year and Halloween costumes may be to blame.

"We have a lot of people going into stores right now, trying on masks, trying on costumes and trying on wigs", Sexton told Toledo station WTOL-TV. He adds that if a mask or costume doesn't look like it's clean or well-kept, don't risk it. But think about how many people tried them on before you?

Once a costume is purchased, place it in a sealed bag for 48 hours.

One other suggestion, medical professionals say you can always wear a swim cap if you're trying on wigs or hats for any occasion.

And the costume is heat resistant, throw it in the dryer in high for 45-minutes before wearing. "Even if it has the brand new tags on it from the store it was from, we still recommend you wash it anyway, just because you never really know where the garment has been before it's come to us". This will surely kill the pesky pests. The American Academy of Pediatrics said there is no reason children with lice to be kept away from school.

She also recommends cleaning clothing and bedding and restricting head-to-head contact until the lice are gone.

However, if nothing works, it is best to take some prescription treatments which will help eradicate the lice.
