CBS 19 viewer, Heather P. wanted to know can you get lice from movie theater seats.
She believes her children and cousins contracted lice from a movie theater and wanted us to verify if that was possible.
Our Verify team checked and found out it is possible, but unlikely.
We were also able to verify that lice is not a personal hygiene or environment cleanliness issue. It's just a human issue.
Another thing we 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.
