Lice Treatment Client Testimonials
“As if this winter has not been bad enough, we saw our daughter scratch her head one day for hours. It finally occurred to us to check her head for lice. With horror we saw a live bug run right across her head. Both my wife and I were about to have a nervous breakdown when like manna from heaven a friend of ours called. We confided in her our discovery and she immediately saved the day by telling us about LiceDoctors. I am happy to report that what would’ve been a stressful experience for us had we done this on our own was pain-free with your company. We are fortunate to have you in the community.” – Michael L. in Lee’s Summit, Missouri
“I just started dating this guy and I gave him lice. What a nightmare! I work in a day care center and I picked it up from one of the kids. I was freaking out because I really liked this guy. I had to get rid of it asap so I looked online and found LiceDoctors. They were over a few hours later and cleaned out the lice out of both our heads. It’s a miracle but he still likes me. What a guy! And big thanks to LiceDoctors!” – Danielle P. in House Springs, Missouri
“My wife is a doctor and knows the drill about head lice. As soon as we saw that our family was “blessed” with head lice she called LiceDoctors immediately. Neither of us has the time or patience to spend hours on this task. Your lice operator knew just what she was doing and worked diligently and efficiently and within 3 hours had treated our entire family. We were very impressed and my wife is a tough critic. We highly recommend LiceDoctors.” – Bill S. in St. Louis, Missouri
“I took a group selfie with my bowling league and the next day I had a bug crawling on my head. Disgusting! I went to the school nurse at my son’s school and she told me to call LiceDoctors. Norma came over that evening. She was an expert. I never knew that there was so much to know about lice. She told me I caught it it’s early stages so it could be easily eradicated. Luckily I didn’t give it to my kids. I would definitely call them if you have a lice issue.” – Grace Y. in Kansas City, MO
Especially Cold and Snowy Winter Means More Lice Cases?
Although that may seem like a paradox, in fact, it is true. This exceptionally cold and snowy winter has meant that more people have stayed inside with their families. Schools have canceled days and children who can get out go and play with their neighbors. Parents have missed work which means that they are home more with their children. When you have all of this downtime and togetherness, it affords the opportunity for lice to be transmitted from person to person and gives parents more of an opportunity to notice that their children are scratching their heads.
Think about an average classroom. Children go and sit at their desks and as they get past preschool and kindergarten, there are fewer activities where they are working together head-to-head or playing at some activity in ultra-close contact. Now consider kids who are in their homes with other kids or siblings. They may be playing video games sitting right next to each other, or watching TV on the couch, or wrestling. All of these activities allow lice to go from one child’s head to another.
We have been treating families with lice for 20 years and this winter the incidence of lice has been especially high. Yes, there is the ongoing trend of lice developing greater resistance to the pesticide shampoos, but lifestyle always plays a role. There is always a spike in the incidence of lice after school vacations as again families are in closer contact, giving the bugs opportunities to move from head to head. As Mary D.in St. Louis reported to us two weeks ago, “This past month we have been snowed in quite a bit so we have enjoyed family time. We had movie day, we played board games and my kids relaxed a lot on the couch. Then this happy scene was interrupted when I noticed two of my kids scratching their heads. A lightbulb went off in my head as I recognized the telltale sign of lice.”
