Shine Some Light on Our Head Lice Problem

Shine Some Light on Our Head Lice Problem
Updated on

Perhaps you are sitting at the table in your Alabama home and you happen to look at your daughter's head just as a bug crawls out. OR You have sent your kids off school and are getting yourself ready for work, when a call comes from the school nurse telling you that your son has head lice. "How is that possible?", you may wonder "I look at that child every day, how did I possibly miss this?" Well head lice hide inside the hair, and their offspring called eggs or nits, camouflage in the hair.

Lice know just how to make it very difficult for you to find them; that is why and how they have lasted on this earth for hundreds of thousands of years. Among the tools that you need to combat lice and nits is bright light. Without a bright lamp or outside, natural sunlight, it will be even more challenging to find the lice. Lamp for lice treatment - LiceDoctorsGooseneck lamps are easy to manage. As you can observe in the above picture of a technician combing through the hair, the room is lit brightly. Keep in mind that nits are particularly small and since they blend into the hair, one needs all the help available to be able to spot every single nit. A 100 watt bulb is enough and it is important to aim the light right at the hair. While it is not required, some people find it useful to use a gooseneck lamp as it allows one to aim it at different spots on the head. Either a floor lamp or table lamp is fine. Even with a lamp, it is still an overwhelming chore for many families to take on the task of lice removal. You can't be "sort of" done with lice. Either you have gotten out all of the nits or you still have an active case that will not go away by itself.

Head Lice and Babies

Can this little person get head lice? The answer is YES. If a person has any amount of hair on their heads it is possible to get head lice; this includes babies. It is possible because head lice attach themselves to the hair shaft to get to the scalp, which is where they feed on blood. This can be very alarming to parents with infants, and especially those who also have school-aged children. But one of the most important things to remember is that head lice do not carry any diseases that can be spread to humans. They are merely a nuisance that needs to be eradicated.
