Let's face it; most people do not know much about head lice and really do not WANT to know much about head lice. After all, lice are not a pleasant topic. However, the reality is that the incidence of head lice is on the rise and lice are very much a part of life today, especially among school-age children. LiceDoctors is on a crusade now to get schools to send home information about how to identify, treat, and prevent head lice. There is so much mis-information out there. For example, contrary to popular belief, dogs do not carry lice, chlorine does not kill lice, and cleaning the house to kill lice will have little to no effect on the outcome of your case of lice. The most common mis-information is about lice treatment techniques.
The reality is that lice chemicals often are ineffective in treating head lice. Many folks run to the drug store and waste money and time on these lice shampoos.
