A health alert before you snap that next selfie. It could be spreading head lice among teenagers, according to an expert who treats lice. Carrie Madej owns Nit Free Noggins. She says she's treating about 35 to 40 percent more teenage girls at her two Chicago locations. Lice can spread, she says, when teens take group selfies. When they touch their heads together the lice can jump from one person to the next, so avoid that. The expert also suggests checking your child for lice weekly.
