Head Lice and the Active Family

Head Lice and the Active Family
Updated on 
April 9, 2017

There's never a good time to get lice, but somehow head lice manage to strike families at the worst possible time. This is especially true for active families; families who are on the go really can not afford to be sidelined with head lice. Emily from Colorado Springs called us in the past couple of weeks: she and her family were headed off for a weekend of travel basketball. Her son is a key player on the team and just learned that he had a head full of lice. She did not have the time to fool around with treatments that might or might not work. Her son needed to be lice and nit free in order to play in the tournament. We have received calls from families all over Colorado who had events looming ahead. Natalie from Monument found lice in her hair 2 days before her wedding. Julie from Denver got a call from the school nurse that her daughter had lice the Wednesday before her Bat Mitzvah. Tim from Security-Widefield was about to leave with his family for a weekend of snow boarding when his daughter started scratching her head.

Head lice threatened to stop these families in their tracks. They all knew people who had run to the drugstore to buy lice chemicals that had failed to work. They had friends who had called pediatricians only to be informed that the doctor does not want children with head lice in their offices. They also knew people who had tried to treat their children themselves only to end up aggravating themselves and their children by not succeeding to eliminate the nits. Professional lice services like LiceDoctors are experienced and know how to effectively put an end to a case of head lice. This is particularly valuable for families who are active and do not have the luxury of time to try treating their families on their own. If you want your family to be lice-free and not contagious, give us a call in the Colorado Springs area at 719-445-1013. Don't waste precious time doing an onerous task that is better left to the professionals. After all wouldn't you rather be out and about with your family enjoying yourselves? LiceDoctors is available 365 days a year, day or night. We will come to your home at your convenience.

EXPOSED TO LICE? HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR LICE TO BE VISIBLE?

We are frequently asked how long it takes after you have been in contact with a person who has head lice for the lice or eggs to appear in your hair. See our answer below: It Varies from Person to Person and Case to Case If you are looking for eggs (nits) in the hair, that will usually take about a week until they are visible. The louse may lay eggs immediately upon arrival in the hair, but those eggs will be microscopic for a few days. If the louse is in the hair for a few days before it starts to lay eggs, then it will take longer until the eggs are visible.
