Getting Lice in Baltimore

Getting Lice in Baltimore
Updated on 
April 14, 2017

ANYONE in Baltimore can get head lice. Head lice has become an epidemic in  Maryland. It is one of the major reasons for absenteeism among school children. In fact, due to excessive absenteeism and the fact that by the time a child has been diagnosed with lice she/he has been in the class for weeks, the American Pediatric Association recently recommended that schools eliminate their no nit policies. Head lice don’t discriminate. All people can get lice, and that is why there are so many people with head lice. All a bug (louse) needs is a head with blood and then it latches onto the hair and feeds off the scalp three times a day. Once in the hair, the louse lays up to 10 eggs (nits) daily. Within two weeks those nits hatch and soon after start to lay their own eggs. You can see how quickly a case of head lice can develop with a person’s hair. If you find yourself battling lice, don't wait. Lice have become immune to chemical lice treatments and it takes experience to be able to find and remove all lice and their eggs from the hair.
