“When the nurse from school called I like to of fainted. My Jessie had head lice? First I did the most productive thing I could think of…I cried! Then I called my best friend who always knows what to do. She told me not to waste time, just call LiceDoctors. I did and y’all were awesome. Thank you a million times.” – Tami G. in West Palm Beach, FL
I had just picked up my daughter, Becca, at her school bus stop, and as she got off the bus, I saw that she was scratching her head nearly incessantly. When I asked about it, she said that one of her classmates was sent home from school with head lice, but the school nurse had checked her and all the kids, and that they were clear. The nurse had told her that sometimes the mere suggestion of lice made people itch. Not wanting to alarm Becca, I accepted that explanation, but I was still suspicious.
Well, after a few more days of “imaginary” itching, I had to check. It didn’t take an expert to see plenty of bugs and nits near her scalp. I called the doctor who told me to use a product sold at the drugstore, and we did. But within a few days or so we were back to square one. Then, I did some research on the Internet, and the Lice Doctors site helped answer my questions, and after calling them and getting an immediate, soothing response, I knew this was the way to go.
Their technician was here in just a few hours, got rid of the lice and nits, and told us how to be sure the problem was finally solved. I also recommended LiceDoctors to all of Becca’s classmates. Turns out several of them had it. Thanks to Lice Doctors, this problem is behind us.” – Lanie W. in Palm Beach, Florida
“LiceDoctors–you guys are the best. Man, we were freaking out trying to get rid of the lice. In desperation, I did a search online and found you. Great move. Haven’t seen a bug or nits in weeks.” – Rick L. in Boca Raton, Florida
“With 3 kids, an absent ex-husband, and a full-time job, the last thing I needed to deal with was head lice. I thought the cheapest method would be for me to treat them myself. Well that didn’t work out so I called LiceDoctors. I wish I had made that call before spending time and money I didn’t have on those do-it-yourself treatments. You were lifesavers.” – Carolyn M. in Haverhill, Florida
“Everyone knows I am a fastidious housekeeper, so it came as a shock when my son came down with a case of head lice. The woman who answered my call at Lice Doctors explained there was no relationship between cleanliness and lice, that it’s all about head to head contact. Anyways, they sent someone really fast, and the problem was gone in no time.” – From a thankful Jennifer A. in Lake Worth, Florida
Head Lice Education is Needed to Reduce Growing Incidence
If you have ever tried and failed to combat head lice on your own, you know how frustrating the experience is. It takes perseverance, and a lot of it, to put an end to a case of lice. Perseverance, while key, is only part of the solution; without a systematic treatment plan, you are not going to get rid of the nits (eggs) in the hair.
LiceDoctors is calling upon schools in Palm Beach County and all over the nation to provide parents with access to an array of educational materials about head lice. There are many sources of information online of which parents should be aware. There is also a lot of mis-information out there so parents need to be directed to accurate information. For many people, a diagnosis of head lice is extremely upsetting and overwhelming. Parents may panic and run out to the drug store to buy chemical lice shampoos that often do not work.
LiceDoctors has begun a major lice education outreach program. We recently launched a “Lice Education Center” page on our website with information on many lice-related topics. In addition, we have an ongoing series of webinars entitled “Secrets of Lice Identification and Removal ” for school nurses and parents. LiceDoctors is reaching out to schools to encourage them to provide information to parents and teachers from a variety of additional valuable web sites including the American Association of Pediatrics, National School Nurses Association, Centers for Disease Control, and the National Pediculosis Association, an advocacy group based in Newton, Massachusetts
Some schools have begun an educational initiative, but there are still many who send kids home with no information other than that they have lice and are not welcome in school until there are no nits in the hair. How is a parent to react to this information? It can be very scary, as well as lonely, as, unfortunately, some parents still feel stigmatized by lice and they don’t want to reach out for help. This often leads to a frustrated family as the lice keep returning. We are in the field so we know that parents waste a lot of time and money trying to get rid of this problem because they have not been advised of effective treatment options.
A comprehensive lice educational protocol initiated by every school district would be enormously helpful for families. With many schools loosening their school lice policy criteria and allowing students into school with nits, after treatment, and in some cases, children with live lice may remain in school until the end of the school day, education has never been more needed. In an effort to reduce school absenteeism and stigmatizing from head lice, the American Academy of Pediatrics, as well as the National Schools Nursing Association, and the Centers for Disease Control now all recommend that schools drop “no nit” policies. At present time, Palm Beach County retains its “no nit” policy, despite some discussions about changing that.
All schools should send home a packet of information to parents that addresses the following lice topics: how lice are transmitted (over 90% are from head to head contact), how to identify lice (they scoot from the light and can be hard to see, but have 6 legs and no wings); how to identify nits (translucent covering a brown bug and stuck to hair shaft); how to eliminate lice from the head ( must physically remove every nit and must be able to identify even the smallest nit to get every one out); how to kill lice in the home (not necessary to do so as lice die when off the human head for 24 hours).
In addition to its webinar series, LiceDoctors has contacted thousands of school nurses and principals to advocate for a comprehensive education policy for parents. Head lice are the second leading cause of school absenteeism, after the common cold. Lice have developed a resistance to chemical pediculicides (chemical lice treatments), so the old model no longer works. It is not enough for schools to tell parents that their children have lice, and that they should go out and buy a chemical lice shampoo, that likely won’t get rid of the lice and may have harmful long term effects. To put an end to a case of lice is more complicated than that, and as with most everything else, education is power. Schools are in an excellent position to disseminate information to parents and LiceDoctors intends to keep lobbying to make sure this happens.
