Lice, just talking about it makes your head itch, right? The CDC reports 6 to 12 million people get head lice worldwide every year.
A viewer of our sister station in Texas wanted to know if you can get lice from movie theater seats.
She believes her children and cousins contracted lice from a movie theater and wanted KYTX to verify if that was possible.
Their Verify team checked and found out it is possible, but unlikely to get lice from a movie theater seat.
They were also able to verify that lice is not a personal hygiene or environment cleanliness issue. It's just a human issue.
Another thing they verified is false -- over the counter medicines are effective on Super Lice. Doctors say a prescription is needed to treat lice that's resistant to Pyrethrin over the counter treatments.
