Lice Treatment Client Testimonials
“I felt like I was in a movie. I was just about to do a major presentation to a client when I was pulled out of the meeting. I was told it was an urgent call from my son’s school. I picked up the phone and the school nurse assured me that everything was okay but my son had HEAD LICE! After breathing a sigh of relief that it wasn’t anything worse I immediately panicked. This was crunch time for me at work and I could not afford to miss work while picking bugs out of his head. Meanwhile, of course, I started to feel itchy as well. I muddled my way through the meeting and confided in my administrative assistant. She is an expert on everything and immediately told me to call LiceDoctors. I called and the rest is blissful history. They came, they combed, they conquered, and my son was back in school the next day. The technician assured me that I was clear and I was so grateful. Best money I ever spent!” – Alice D. in Wilmington, Delaware
“The one thing I love most about my daughter-in-law is that she is a wonderful housekeeper. That is why I was shocked to learn that my grandchildren had head lice. I called a cousin who knows about such things and she told me that lice don’t care about how clean the houses are; they just want to get to find fresh heads to infest. Fortunately my cousin also told me about LiceDoctors, and I was able to arrange for my grandchildren to be taken care of immediately. As a grandmother, that is one of the best things I’ve ever done.” – LaDonna B. in Newark, Delaware
“Even though I consider myself to be a do-it-yourself mom, I know my limitations. I knew from looking at my children’s heads, that there was no way that I was going to be able to get all of those eggs out of the hair. I also figured there were bugs in there but I could not see any. It was time to call the number that I had stored in my cell phone months earlier when lice was going around the classrooms and parents were talking about the best lice treatment service: LiceDoctors. LiceDoctors was professional, prompt, and efficient. I may be a do-it-yourself mom, but somethings are better left to the professionals.” – Catherine V. in Dover, Delaware
“The second last thing I expected when my daughter came home for spring break from college was that she would have a case of lice. The last thing I expected was that I would get it too. But she did, and I did, and we needed to do something fast because we had an important wedding to attend. I found LiceDoctors online and your tech did such a professional job that I just had to let you know. I have recommended you to several friends. Thanks, LiceDoctors!” – Tracy J. In Smyrna, DE.
Large-Scale Study Results Show that Head Lice Are Resistant to Chemical Lice Treatments
At LiceDoctors, we have known that chemical lice treatments are often ineffective because we have seen it with our own eyes for many years. We have treated families whose heads are filled with crawling bugs after they have used over-the-counter head lice treatments as well as prescription shampoos. It is clear that head lice are very hearty and have now become resistant to many treatments intended to kill them.
“A new study finds that lice in at least 25 states have developed resistance to an ingredient found in over-the-counter remedies that are widely recommended by doctors and school officials. The research is being presented Tuesday at a meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS).” reported CBS News.
The article goes on to say that, “Head lice are a giant nuisance — as many as 12 million American school children between the ages of 3 and 11 get them each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And to make matters worse, researchers continue to find evidence that the tiny pests are becoming genetically resistant to common treatments that people use to battle the bugs.”
Researchers from Southern Illinois University gathered lice samples from 30 states, with the help of a group of public health workers.
“We are the first group to collect lice samples from a large number of populations across the U.S.,” explained Kyong Yoon, Ph.D., in a press release. “What we found was that 104 out of the 109 lice populations we tested had high levels of gene mutations, which have been linked to resistance to pyrethroids.”
Time Magazine reports that, “His (Dr. Yoon’s) research is still ongoing, but what he’s found so far in 109 samples from 30 states is startling: the vast majority of lice now carry genes that are super-resistant to the over-the-counter treatment used against them. Lice is commonly treated by a group of insecticides called pyrethroids, used for mosquito control. One of those, permethrin, is the active ingredient in some anti-lice treatments—but lice populations can develop a trio of mutations that make it resistant to pyrethroids.
‘It’s a really, really serious problem right now in the U.S.,” Yoon says. Though head lice aren’t known to transmit any diseases, they can be an itchy nuisance—and now, they’re harder to kill.’ ”
The National Pediculosis Association, a non-profit organization in Cambridge, Massachusetts, says that manual extraction of nits (lice eggs) with a nit-removal comb is the way to go. LiceDoctors has been a leader in the field of lice removal and we have been treating families with using all-natural protocols, which include manual extraction, for over 20 years. We urge you not to needlessly expose your children to ineffective chemicals.
