Lice Treatment Client Testimonials
“Karen and Wendy, We thought that we were loaded with lice because my children were exposed to them at school; they were scratching a lot, and I saw little things in their hair. Your very honest LiceDoctors technician, Jessica, checked us and assured us that we did not have lice. It was just dry scalp. She explained to us that nits are brownish and this dry scalp was white. We were thrilled and appreciated your trustworthiness.” – Isabel P. in Des Moines, Iowa
“Our technician was wonderful and so good with my kids. We have already told our friends and the parents of our kids’ friends about LiceDoctors and how you pulled out all the bugs and nits. We can finally have what has eluded us for weeks…peace of mind!I am sharing this with you to share with other with the hopes that they find you earlier on in the process than it took us!” – Preeti K. in Ames, Iowa
“As a single mom, lice was just one of many things going on in my life at the time and basically was the straw that broke the camel’s back. I called LiceDoctors and they immediately dispatched a technician to my home. She could hear the desperation in my voice and was very sympathetic, but reassured me that she’d take care of everything. She checked my two children and found that both had lice, so I also asked to be treated just in case (even though she didn’t see any nits or live bugs). What a sigh of relief to know that we are nit-free!” – Donna H. in Urbandale, Iowa
“LiceDoctors are my family’s new best friend, but we hope we never have to see them again! (LOL). I have them in my speed dial on my phone and in my favorites on my computer. If you are busy and want this job done right the first time, I highly recommend this lice removal service. Customer service was wonderful!” – Kimberly S. in Oskaloosa, Iowa
“I cannot say enough good things about our experience with LiceDoctors. This company is clearly dedicated to customer service and making their clients feel very special. We have been lice free for many weeks now, but the lice education that was provided to us by LD will be with us should an infestation re-occur in the future. We will always be grateful to you for what you did for our family and you know we will be spreading the word far and wide through my HSA.” – Jim D. in Boone, Iowa
Des Moines Mom Asks: My Kids Were Just Diagnosed With Lice; Does that Mean I Have It?
LiceDoctors finds that in the vast majority of families, if the children have head lice then the mom has it. Head lice travel from head to head and as we moms are in close contact with our kids, it is a likely scenario that we will inherit a bug or two from them. In fact, in about three quarters of the families we treat, when a child presents with lice, the mom has it too. In almost as many cases, at least one sibling will have gotten lice from the primary family infestation.
It usually takes a minimum of 2 to 3 weeks before someone exhibits signs if lice. The initial lice that arrived onto the head lay their eggs and then about 10 days later those eggs hatch and about a week or so later you may feel itching as the babies and adult lice bite the head to get blood for their food. By the time you see your child scratching her head, she has been harboring those bugs for weeks. Just think how many times over those couple of weeks, you were in close contact with your child.
Lice have become part of life for school-aged children. We receive calls from parents all over Iowa asking up us the same questions: if my child has life, does that mean that I do? Or how did my child and I both get lice?
To help ward off lice, LiceDoctors suggests that you check your child every week in a bright room. You should check and see if there are translucent eggs (nits) that are glued to one side of the hair shaft. Of course, the sooner you discover a case, the less likely it is that your child will have time to spread the lice to other family members including you. Also spraying hair with a lice repellent or hair spray or gel or mousse will put a barrier around the hair so lice can not claw on as easily.
At LiceDoctors, we are big fans of our kids giving us hugs. We just hope that if you feel the same way, you will check regularly for signs of lice. If you find that you have head lice in the Des Moines area, don’t worry, we will help you. Call us at 515-650-2678 and a lice expert will treat you, day or night, at your convenience any day of the week.
