Noong bata ako, isa ang kuto sa problema ko. Palagi ako tinatakot ng mga tita at lola ko na liliparin na ako sa dami ng kuto ko hahaha! Growing up, akala ko normal at ok lang ang may kuto pero aside sa affected ang confidence level madami pang possible negative ang pagkakaroon ng head lice.
Nag-try yung nanay ko and tita ko ng mga home remedies na mostly ay myth lang pala, sinubukan nila yung kumukulong suka, gas at pati hair dye para lang ma-treat yung headlice ko. Pero nabalik pa rin noon.
Hay… sana noon pa may “Kilusang Kontra Kuto”
Because almost one third of public school students are affected by head lice infestation. Lamoiyan Corporation’s Licealiz Head Lice Treatment Shampoo continues the battle against the public concern as it launches Kilusang Kontra Kuto (KKK) year 3.
Alam nyo ba mommies na ang “kuto or head lice” ay second sa most common health problem sa mga public schools sa bansa natin, ang una ay tooth decay.
Head lice infestation continues to be a significant issue in most public schools in the Philippines. Lamoiyan Corporation’s Licealiz Head Lice Treatment Shampoo initiated in 2016 the KKK or Kilusang Kontra Kuto, a coalition that has been battling head lice infestation nationwide.
Students were treated with LiceAliz, they were given their own “suyod and white towel” as well as a story colouring book about head lice.
Lamoiyan Corporation has partnered again with the Department of Education, University of Philippines College of Public Health, Drugstores Association of the Philippines, and Mommy Bloggers Philippines for this year’s Kilusang Kontra Kuto.
Sa bansa natin, madaming mga myths or wrong beliefs which became one the biggest hindrances sa pag-eliminate ng head lice.
Most common myths:
- Bad hygiene ang cause ng kuto – kahit sobrang linis pwedeng magkakuto
- Long hair ang madalas magkakuto – kahit batang lalaki pwedeng magkakuto
- Nalipad ang kuto – actually hindi ito totoo mommies, wala silang pakpak.
- Mayonaise & Kerosene ang treatment – this is a possibly harmful treatment mommies, head lice shampoo are what physicians do recommend against head lice.
These are just some of the false information ingrained in Philippine society that Licealiz continues to dispute. Head lice may be rampant, but it can be treated with the correct information and proper methods like using shampoo specifically for the treatment and prevention of head lice such as Licealiz Head Lice Treatment Shampoo.
Kaya isa sa ginagawa during KKK (Kilusang Kontra Kuto) ay short seminar or talk by a Dermatologist para sa mga parents and students.
Licealiz Kilusang Kontra Kuto, which is now on its third year, was launched as a part of Licealiz’s mission to create a kuto¬-free Philippines. This year they want to make its impact bigger and its reach wider in order to eliminate kuto by spreading awareness about it, one community at a time.
Lamoiyan Corporation is inviting everyone to join their fight against head lice and be part of the Kilusang Kontra Kuto Year 3.
