Client Lice Treatment Testimonials
Made the Right Choice with LiceDoctors
“It is with a lot of gratitude that I send this note to y’all at LiceDoctors. Your lovely technician was very industrious and conscientious. She spent quite a bit of time answering our million questions. We felt safe with the treatment and like knowing that there’s a medical doctor on-staff. We know we made the right choice with LiceDoctors because those lice bugs are all gone!” – Carla K. in Spartanburg, South Carolina
LiceDoctors is Only Method That Worked
“What a saga we have endured. I can not even begin to remember all of the treatments that we tried to get rid of the head lice in our family. All I know is that one by one they failed. Then one day my daughter came home from school and told us that her friend’s family had used an in-home professional service called LiceDoctors and that she had beaten the lice plague! We immediately called LiceDoctors and guess what? They came to our house at the appointed hour and worked diligently to get rid of those stubborn lice and eggs. All I can say is LiceDoctors is the ONLY method that worked! Run, don’t walk, to the phone and call them today.” – Alex A. in Columbia, South Carolina
LiceDoctors Restores Sanity and Order
“Luckily I am a zen mama because I have had to count on my meditation techniques in order to remain calm through the chaos of head lice. When I began to lose it, I knew i was time for professional help… The kind of professional help that gets rid of head lice. Luckily someone in my meditation circle knew about LiceDoctors. I called them and they restored sanity and order to my house in a couple of hours. It was well worth the call!” – Phoebe C. In Gaffney, South Carolina
Education is Key
“I now understand that lice is nothing to be embarrassed about. I think the more that people understand that concept, the more likely they are to be out of the closet about having it. This will help the stigma to go away (let’s face it, anyone can get lice), which will allow people to share information on how to get rid of it. Here is my educational tip of the year: if you get head lice call LiceDoctors. It may just be the best call that you make this year. I know it was for my family. We owe our sanity to the LiceDoctors and I am paying it forward.” – Luanne M. in Charleston, South Carolina
Protect Yourself from a Re-infestation in the Future
Are the Nits Contagious?
Meredith, a mom from Charleston, called us to come to her home and treat her family for head lice. As it turned out the family had a moderate case. One of LiceDoctors’ missions when we are at the home is to educate families about head lice, how they are transmitted, and how to protect yourself from a re-infestation in the future. As our technician, Carol, pulled some bugs and nit (eggs) from one of the heads she swiped the comb on a paper towel. As you can see from the picture of lice and nits, to the right, there are three large lice bugs and several smaller nits.
Meredith asked our technician a question that we hear quite often: are both the lice and nits contagious? The answer to that question is that the lice are definitely contagious, and highly so, but nits are not contagious. You may have read that some schools have dropped their no nit policy, which prohibits children from remaining in school if they have nits. Based on recommendations from key medical groups such as the National Association of School Nurses and the American Association of Pediatrics, many schools have changed their policies. These organizations maintain that because nits are not contagious there is no need to bar children from school.
Nits are inanimate objects. They are eggs encased with a hard shell that is glued to one side of the hair shaft. The glue is extremely strong and nits do not fall off of hair very often. In the unlikely event that a nit falls off of the head, it will die within a very short amount of time. Nits are not mobile so they cannot move from one head to another. If a nit is a viable, meaning it has not hatched and it remains in the head, it will hatch after about 10 days or so. At that point a baby bug called a nymph emerges. That baby bug takes about another 10 days until it matures and then it begins to lay eggs. When a louse is in the nit stage, it is never contagious. It does not become contagious until several days after it has hatched and the baby bug matures enough to be able to crawl to another head.
If a person has multiple bugs in his or her hair, that usually means the case has been brewing for a few weeks. Usually one bug crawls into the hair and starts the problem. It lays eggs and a few weeks later after the eggs have hatched and the bugs have matured, you will see multiple bugs. No matter how many nits or lice you have in your hair, LiceDoctors will rescue you.
