Client Lice Treatment Testimonials
“There are times in life when you need to have someone take care of the problem for you! LiceDoctors are an exceptional example of one of those times … You can always go see a normal doctor, pay a co payment, spend $150 to $200 on a chemical shampoo that may or may not work, and possibly cause damage to you or your head. Just think you’re pouring “CHEMICALS” strong enough to kill hundreds of lice … There is no way that is safe for you ! Or you can call Lori and the LiceDoctors and have them take care of the problem for you … If you know or don’t know, lice don’t care if you’re clean, dirty, rich, or poor … They are bugs that spread through contact and if you have ever had them, you know how fast they act and hard they are truly to get rid of. Lori came to our house and was extremely polite and knowledgeable about lice and how to “SAFELY” rid them from my wife who is 30 weeks pregnant at the time … Yes it requires you to do some work on your part but it’s a great safe way to have lice removed and is affordable for the amount of time and detail someone else spends on your head to remove them. Thank you again Lori for helping us in short notice! Great service!”

“Well, it has been a month or so since we used LiceDoctors, and my daughter continues to be lice free. Other girls in her school are still dealing with the problem- they must be using the over-the-counter chemicals. We heartily recommend them.”
Joe C. in Dallas, Texas, Yelp 5 stars.
“We had used over the counter treatments and the lice kept returning. Got an evening appointment, the technician was great. She was compassionate, very knowledgeable and thorough. This was money well spent.”

“I can’t thank LiceDoctors enough for what they did for me and my family! They sent out a professional, very informed technician who really seemed to care about what she was doing and how it was helping our situation. Great experience…considering :)”

“Tasha was very understanding while I was contemplating what I should do…make an appointment or tackle the lice on my own. I made the right decision to call in the experts! Tasha sent Mrs. Trudy to my home, and she made all the difference in the world. I had treated and combed my daughter’s hair the night before AND that morning. I could not believe the amount of eggs Trudy removed that I didn’t see! I appreciate the natural method for the health of my family. Trudy was kind and really good with my kids. I am very grateful to Mrs. Trudy for her hard work!!”

“You folks do the Lord’s work as far as I am concerned. My poor daughter had a bad case of lice and I like to have died when I saw how many she had. I knew that this was more than I could handle by myself. Luckily a friend of mine knew about LiceDoctors and urged me to call y’all. I was so pleased with your service and have told all of my friends. Thank you so much.”

“I was in Florida and boy, were they having an epidemic. My two nieces got it. I knew who to call because my kids got it in San Antonio where we live. I have LiceDoctors on my speed dial. They have treated us completely and effectively twice. LiceDoctors is the best in my experience.”
Marina G. in San Antonio, Texas
“Mi hija had piojos and she was scratching so much. Mi mama tried to pick them out but she could not get rid of all of them. Our medico told us to call you. You come and did a really good job. We are so pleased you help us out and mi hija is clear and was allowed to go back to school.”

The Incidence of Head Lice is Increasing
Many families have experienced or know someone who has experienced head lice in Texas and in other states. You may hear people say in amazement that they can’t believe how prevalent the incidence is. You probably don’t remember such a high incidence from when you were a kid. What is going on?
According to Medscape, and authors Lyn Guenther, MD, FRCP(C), FAAD; Chief Editor: Michael Stuart Bronze, MD
“Louse infestation remains a major problem throughout the world. In the United States, the incidence of pediculosis has risen steadily over the last 3 decades, making the diagnosis and treatment of louse infestation a common task in general medical practice. Head louse infestation among school children has reached epidemic proportions in many parts of the United States.”

In the Tech Times, Alex Saltarin writes, “An increase in the incidence of lice in teens has many youths scratching their heads in confusion. Some lice-treatment experts are saying that selfies are to be blamed. A rising number of youths from around the country have been scratching their heads in confusion due to an ongoing uptick in the incidence of head lice. If lice-treatment experts are to be believed, the recent popularity of “selfies” are to be blamed for the problem.”

While no reliable statistics are available regarding the incidence of head lice by state in the US, Texas has the highest incidence of head lice among LiceDoctors’ treatment areas. Most individuals with head lice do not report their case to the department of health so there is no accurate monitoring of numbers of head lice cases in the US each year. The sheer size of the state of Texas combined with relatively warm weather that is favorable to transmission of head lice contribute to the high number of head lice cases in Texas.
There are several factors behind the rise in incidence of head lice today. First, chemical lice treatments often are ineffective in treating head lice. The bugs have mutated and are now resistant to many chemicals. They are often called “super lice”. Some of the more efficacious chemicals have been removed from the pediculicides owing to the fact that they were determined to be potentially cancer-causing. In addition, the eggs or nits have a shell that is extremely hard and prevents chemicals from soaking in and killing the bug inside.
Societal changes may also be contributing to the increase of head lice. Selfies, when people put their heads together for photographs, may be a factor in the uptick. Teens are more demonstrative, hugging each other hello and goodbye. Kids jump all over each other in team sports. Even the video game craze, when kids sit next to each other for hours at a time, facilitates the spread of lice from one child to another.
One thing is for sure: head lice incidence is on the rise. It is becoming increasingly difficult for untrained people to get rid of head lice on their own. This is why LiceDoctors, who will come and check and treat your whole family, can make all the difference in your head lice experience.
