VERIFY: Can you get lice from a movie theater seat?

CBS 19's Dana Hughey finds out!

TYLER - 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 to get lice from a movie theater seat.

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.
