Lice: A Technician’s Tale

Lice: A Technician’s Tale
Updated on 
November 7, 2019

Here a lice technician tells of her earliest memory of getting head lice as a child. Her experience was not a pleasant one and she vowed to find a better way.

The year is 1996 and I am 7 years old. My hair had never had a haircut and my mom was now standing over me, crying. She had called the neighbor over and they were both just staring at me, scared. My mom begins to part my hair as her friend just stares in horror. Lice! I had hundreds of lice in my hair. My mom calls the doctor with her findings and we drive immediately to his office.  The doctor told my mom I was infested. Infested?!?  We were given a prescription and a comb recommendation. My mom is now left to her own devices and she doesn't even know where to begin. She reads the instructions again and again. She combs my hair for hours, frantically cleans the house, puts all my stuffed animals in garbage bags, boils our brushes, and strips our beds. The work seems endless.

I would get sent home with lice two more times that year. My mom had followed the doctors orders and wondered what was she doing wrong? She had no one to turn to help with the process. On the third time, my parents gave me a haircut. I can remember hours upon hours of combing and cleaning.  I lost countless stuffed animals and inches of my hair. We tried prescription shampoos and over the counter remedies, but we just couldn't seem to get it right.

Why Do Head Lice Spread So Quickly Within Families?

Families in close contact with each other are the most likely to pass along lice. Over three quarters of the families LiceDoctors has treated have multiple cases of head lice. In a family where a child has head lice, especially when the child is young, the mom is highly likely to also have lice. Siblings are also likely to have contracted a case, but to a slightly lesser degree than mom. Why is that? Head lice are extremely contagious. If they have access to another head, especially if the one they are on is crowded with other lice and eggs, they will take advantage of that opportunity.
