Germantown and Gaithersburg FAQs

What’s wrong with a chemical head lice treatment?
The major issue with chemical shampoos is that they simply do not work as well as manual lice and nitpicking. Head lice have evolved in many cases into “super lice”, which specifically survive treatment by over-the-counter and prescription shampoos. LiceDoctors Germantown and Gaithersburg chemical-free lice removal process is the best way to guarantee the end of head lice.
My child’s classmate has head lice. Should I be worried?
School is a common place where young kids catch lice. That is because head lice crawl from one head to the next and children often spend time sitting and playing close to one another. In fact, there are 6-12 million cases of head lice found in children under the age of 12 annually. If your child has not been in close contact with her classmate, she may be ok. If she has had a play date with the infested child, the chances that she is affected go up significantly. Call LiceDoctors to have an expert technician check your child’s hair anywhere in Germantown or Gaithersburg.
Why is a follow-up treatment necessary?
Your Germantown and Gaithersburg lice technician will comb through the hair and then handpick all remaining visible lice and nits, but all it takes is a single survivor for your problem to start all over again. A female louse lays up to 6-10 new eggs a day and can live for about a month before dying so it will end up laying hundreds of eggs over its short life. The simple follow-up plan ensures anything that may survive is suffocated overnight and isn’t able to re-start the proliferation of lice.
Can lice carry diseases?
No. Lice are annoying and itchy, but that’s all they are. Don’t worry about contracting any other diseases or illnesses from head lice in Germantown or Gaithersburg or surrounding areas.

Client Testimonials

  • “It seemed like forever since at least one of my kids wasn’t struggling with head lice. We knew we finally had to find a way to get the lice out of our household once and for all. Fortunately, that solution was a lot easier than I expected. All it took was one call and a visit from LiceDoctors. We have told everyone we know about this effective and surprisingly inexpensive service.” Candace N. in Gaithersburg, Maryland

  • “After returning from an extended camping trip, I saw that  three of my four kids had head lice. It took us multiple tries using the drugstore chemicals until I learned that today’s lice are resistant to these treatments. I also learned that it took a trained professional to do it right. Fortunately, we learned about LiceDoctors, and that was the way to solve our family’s lice problem. We are grateful to LiceDoctors!” Kevin S. in Germantown,  Maryland

  • “My daughter returned from a teen tour loaded with head lice. I tried to tackle this on my own, but it was quickly evident that I had no idea how to beat this problem. I spoke to some of the other moms whose daughters also came home with lice and learned that they were all using LiceDoctors. I called the service and they dispatched a very competent technician who took care of us right away. I very much recommend that if you are feeling overwhelmed by head lice that you call them. It is definitely worth it!” Lauren E. in Gaithersburg,  Maryland
