Is pedyculosis easily transmitted? My 5 years old child has pedyculosis, so I wonder if I can get it from him. Is there a way of preventing transmission of pedyculosis? I’ve noticed that he has got it about a week ago. I have no symptoms. What do you think?

It’s very easily transmitted. But it doesn’t have to mean that you’re going to be infested. My daughter had pediculosis, and I didn’t get it from her, although the chances were big. There is no such a recommendation for prevention of pediculosis. You should wash laundering clothing more often, in hot water. There is incubation period for about 2 weeks from infestation. It means that you may be infestated, but symptoms would appear later.
