Client Lice Treatment Testimonials
“My boss is the pickiest person I know. When she told me that she had used LiceDoctors, I knew I could not do any better. I thought that you would like to know that your lice operator was fantastic. My kids loved her and the lice were no march for her treatment. We are 3 weeks post-visit and no more lice”
Jessica D. in West Orange, New Jersey
“I am a camp nurse from the old school. When my own kids got lice this year, I applied the chemicals just like I tell parents to do. I applied it again 10 days later. A few days after that I saw more Iive bugs and nits. I couldn’t believe my eyes. I asked a fellow nurse for help and she told me to call LiceDoctors. I never believed that oil worked to smother the bugs but guess what? I was wrong and I now refer my campers to LiceDoctors. Turns out old dogs need to learn new tricks.”
Mary L. from Livingston, NJ
“I didn’t like the hassle and lack of privacy associated with bringing my kids to a salon. I found LiceDoctors online and the technician was an expert and extremely professional and lovely with my kids. It was a lucky day for me when I came upon the LiceDoctors website and I have referred 3 very satisfied families to you.”
Anna M. in Short Hills, NJ
“I was so happy to find out that Karen and Wendy had opened their lice removal business in Essex County. We moved here 2 years ago from Baltimore where they had done a terrific job of de-licing my kids. I did not hesitate to have LiceDoctors come to our new residence and they did as good a job this time as they did the first time we met. We love you, LiceDoctors!”

How Do I Inform My Child’s Friends’ Parents That We Have Head Lice?
Let’s face it. No one wants to be the bearer of bad news and the news that your child may have innocently transmitted lice to another child can be very uncomfortable for people. You may feel responsible or embarrassed even though your child didn’t intentionally pass along the lice. Perhaps you feel that you will be judged for not being a vigilant mom or for failing to keep your child and/or house clean. If the parent you need to tell is the nervous type, this will add to your anxiety.
LiceDoctors recommends the following strategy:
- First, keep in mind that it is a good decision to tell the families of your child’s friends that your child has lice. For one thing, it allows them to discover a case of lice at an earlier stage, when it is a bit easier to treat. It is also better for your child that her friends get treated so they do not pass the lice infestation back to your child.
- When you place the call, we recommend that you have some basic information to share with the other parent. For example, lice are a nuisance but don’t carry disease. Anyone can get lice; hygiene is not a factor. Head to head contact is the way most lice are transferred. You need to treat the head, not the house because bugs die when off the head for a day. Chemical lice shampoos often fail because lice have mutated and become resistant to them. For further information, refer to LiceDoctors Education Center page.
- Let people know that their child may have lice even if she/he shows no signs of being itchy so they should check for lice even if child is asymptomatic.
- To check for lice and nits (eggs) use a bright light or bring child out in natural day light. Let them know that they need to look for translucent eggs with tiny brown bugs inside. These eggs (nits) are stuck to the hair.
- If, upon doing a lice check, they find bugs or nits, they have to remove all visible signs. It is often advisable to call in a professional service like LiceDoctors to expediently eradicate the case because if you leave even one or two nits in the hair, the case will start up again.
- Tell them that they do not need to do loads of laundry, pack up toys, or scrub the house from top to bottom. To eradicate head lice you need to deal with the head not the house; lice will die when off the head for a day or so.
While people are not thrilled to hear the news that their child has been exposed to head lice, most are actually gracious when they get the news. They realize how common lice are today and they appreciate being given a heads-up. We at LiceDoctors are here to help in any way we can. Call us at 973-574-4962.
