Affordable DIY Halloween Costumes for the Whole Family

Affordable DIY Halloween Costumes for the Whole Family”

It's not a sign of poor hygiene. According to reports, doctors see a spike in head lice cases this time of year.

Dr. Christy Ott warns News 3, head lice can be potentially lurking in Halloween costumes.

Sexton said children tend to try on several costumes and masks at party stores, and one person with head lice can spread the annoying bugs to others who try on the costume.

Whether you want to be trendy with the coolest costume, or know which costumes to avoid looking like everyone else, the list of the most popular Halloween costumes for 2017 is now out. 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. "Make sure it fits and get out the door".

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

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

Wear a swim or wig cap to create a barrier that will be tough for lice to cross.

If you act fast or guard against it well, your trick or treater can have fun and not bring home more than just candy. Sexton added that the risk of infestation can last for up to seven days after coming into contact with someone or something carrying lice.
