Warm Weather, Baseball Caps, and Head Lice Treatment

Warm Weather, Baseball Caps, and Head Lice

As winter comes to an end and students take a break from school and enjoy their spring breaks, an unintended side effect occurs: we see a jump in the number of head lice cases. Spring break brings an increased number of play dates, family vacations,and group outings and activities. While all of this is lots of fun, it also means that children are in closer contact, in informal settings, and are therefore more likely to experience close head-to-head contact. Since head-to-head contact is the primary way to transfer head lice from person-to-person, if one person has a case, by the end of the week he or she may have shared that with several people. Add to that the start of softball and baseball season, with the sharing of helmets and baseball caps, as well as the warming weather, and you have the formula for an upswing in the incidence of head lice.

Feeling Like I Have To Keep Kids In Bubble

As LiceDoctors client, Elissa C. from Bala Cynwyd told us, "I feel like I need to put my kids in a bubble going forward. Every time we return from spring break, we end up dealing with head lice. If we make it through the spring vacation lice-free then my son starts Little League and invariably picks up a case there." Since the reality is that head lice are a part of life, all you can do is understand the basic facts of lice and know when it's time to call in an expert. Understand that not everybody who has head lice itches so do routine checks on your children. You are looking for translucent eggs with brown bugs inside that are stuck to the hair. To truly eradicate a case of head lice, you must remove every single nit from the hair. Since that can be a daunting task, you may very well benefit from the expertise of an expert.

Manually Removing Lice By Hand A Difficult Task

Angela D. from Pittsburgh was confident that she could remove all of the lice herself. After all she reasoned, she is a scientist and is accustomed to looking at very small specimens. In addition, she is very methodical and determined. After three weeks of diligently treating her children's heads, She was still finding nits in the hair. When she called us she was literally in tears. "As a scientist, I underestimated how formidable this enemy was. It took a while for me to realize that I needed help. Once I saw that I could not do this task myself, I turned my intensity to finding the best professional service around. That search led me to LiceDoctors. Everything about their protocol made sense to me. They came, they worked, they conquered."
