Why Choose LiceDoctors in Schaumburg or Elgin?

It’s a dreaded situation – your kids have just been sent home from school with a note that says they have head lice. When did they get them? Who did they get them from? Does my 2 year old have them too? Do I have them?
Don’t panic. Head lice don’t transmit any human diseases, and with LiceDoctors all natural, proven treatment they can quickly be eliminated from your Schaumburg or Elgin home, and life can return to normal.
We want you to understand that there are a lot of myths and bad science surrounding head lice. The biggest is that the over-the-counter or prescription shampoos are effective at killing the lice and getting rid of the eggs (nits). Sadly, they don’t. With many decades of use, these chemical pesticides have lost their efficacy as the bugs have become immune to them. And, they were never effective at penetrating the eggs (nits) – no matter what the side of the box says. Many of the “home remedies” you may hear about from friends and family (or YouTube) May have some benefit, but are rarely implemented properly. They are not regulated by the FDA and may carry potential side effects or be difficult to work with.

Schaumburg and Elgin FAQs

What are the symptoms of head lice?
Some people have very itchy scalps as a result of head lice, while other people have no symptoms at all. Since head lice scoot quickly in the hair, they are harder to find than lice eggs (nits). Using a bright light, or the Schaumburg or Elgin sunlight, look for translucent brown eggs that are pasted to the hair shaft with a sticky substance that makes them hard to remove.
How often should I check my kids for head lice?
If you live anywhere in the Chicagoland area, then you know how common head lice are. To stay ahead of the situation, we recommend that you check your children for lice at least once a week. It can help to use a bit of magnification, inexpensive reading glasses are great. Carefully comb through the hair making consecutive small parts to systematically look near the roots at all the hair on your child’s head. Head lice lay their eggs very close to the scalp and you may see them as tiny bumps on the side of the hair shaft. Nits won’t blow or brush away because of the way they are glued in place when they are laid. If you find lice or nits, or just want help in being sure, you can call for a LiceDoctors technician to come to your Schaumburg or Elgin home and teach you how to check for head lice.
Do pets carry head lice?
No, head lice cannot live on your cat, dog, hamster, parakeet, or any other household pet. Head lice and nits (eggs) only live on human heads. The claws of pediculus humanus capitis are uniquely designed to hold onto human hair, and if one should happen to fall onto a dog or cat or other pet, it would not be able to hold on and would quickly fall on the floor. LiceDoctors technicians in Schaumburg and Elgin are experts on head lice and provide comprehensive education regarding the life cycle and habits of these unwelcome intruders.

Client Testimonials

  • “After learning my two children had lice I immediately looked for a professional. The first few I tried were not able to fix my problem and even wanted me to pay them to come back and reassess what they hadn’t done right in the first place. I found LiceDoctors and was instantly relieved. They came to my home and took over my problem. I can’t express how much weight they lifted.”  Taylor L. in Schaumberg, Illinois

  • “Not knowing much about lice, I lived with the problem for over a month. After asking around, a friend recommended LiceDoctors. They came to me and educated me while they got rid of the lice. I really appreciated how respectful and kind they were. The tech was knowledgeable and available, even weeks after to answer any questions I had. Great organization!”  Gail A. in Elgin, IL.

  • “We had used LiceDoctors three years ago with great success. When my older daughter started complaining about being itchy I knew exactly what to do. After confirming that she did, in fact, have a case of head lice, I called them right away. Tonya came to my house very soon after the call and worked diligently and actively to clear us. She did a great job. I always recommend LiceDoctors to my friends. Also compared to the prices I have heard other friends have paid at salons, this company is an absolute bargain!”  Colin D. in Hoffman Estates, IL.
