Why Choose Us in Silver Spring?

Planning is crucial in head lice treatment. Without a solid, proven course of action to take, the failure rate of many head lice treatments is high. Everyday we get calls from parents who have already done so much work trying to get rid of lice: mountains of laundry, cleaning and storage of toys, drying pillows, throwing out brushes, and treatment after treatment with various alleged lice killing shampoos. 

If this is you, you are not alone and it’s not your fault that treatment is failing. Modern lice carry chemical resistance genes, and the resistance increases from the rampant overuse or misuse of common pesticides used to treat head lice. Just like with antibiotic-resistant bacteria, the more treatment parents try, the more resistant the surviving lice are. Even when a pesticide shampoo kills all the adult lice successfully, the lice eggs are basically unaffected, and the lice will come back if the eggs are not removed. 

So many of the Silver Spring parents who call us have already done so much more work than is actually necessary to rid their families of lice, because they didn’t know what to do. A quick Internet search for the best head lice treatment reveals millions of results. But we know from the research of our medical director and over 2 decades of company experience, NONE of the above listed procedures is NECESSARY for completely eradicating a case of head lice, except for one: removal. Your safe and natural professional in-home lice and nit removal from LiceDoctors in Silver Spring is expedient yet thorough and comes with a simple plan to follow afterwards so that you can forego all the hard work most parents try before calling us. 

We know it’s hard to believe there could be a simple, natural solution to head lice when you’ve heard so much conflicting information out there, and it’s normal for parents to have many questions. We have a friendly real live human being answering our phones until midnight every night; give us a call to discuss your Silver Spring family’s unique situation and options to be rid of lice today.

Silver Spring FAQs

I WANT MY DAUGHTER AND ME TREATED, BUT MY HUSBAND JUST WANTS TO SHAVE HIS HEAD; DOES HE STILL NEED LICE TREATMENT?
Great! If he doesn’t mind trying out a bald head for a while, there’s really no better time than during a lice outbreak. Anyone who has a buzz cut maintained with no visible hair would be considered immune to having a persistent case of head lice. Don’t just buzz once and let the hair grow back. Make sure there is no hair for a louse to grab a hold of. Your local Silver Spring lice professional will check other family members but your husband will be safe.
HOW LONG AFTER EXPOSURE CAN I EXPECT TO SEE SYMPTOMS OF LICE?
The first exposure is usually just 1 or 2 bugs, which each lay about 6-10 eggs a day, which at first aren't visible. Those grow over the next 1-2 weeks to a size that you can see them, then hatch a few days later; these baby bugs that emerge will then mature over the next 10 days. That's about when the itching usually starts, since the first bug probably wouldn't be too itchy and you'd probably not notice it if you didn’t have reason to suspect lice. When in doubt, your Silver Spring lice technician can diagnose before you have symptoms.
WHAT CAN I DO TO PREVENT MY CHILD FROM CATCHING LICE IN THE FUTURE?
The best way to avoid catching head lice is to keep the hair away from touching other humans, for example, cutting the hair shorter, or pulling it up in a bun. It's pretty far-fetched to expect your kids to go through life without ever hugging or roughhousing with their Silver Spring friends, so preventative shampoos and sprays (NOT treatment shampoos) help, as do any products worn in the hair like gel or hairspray, as lice really prefer squeaky-clean hair. LiceDoctors sells natural hair products that help repel lice from hair, which you can use to help protect your kids from further outbreaks, which you’ll find here https://www.licedoctors.com/shop.html.

I did not even know that there was such a thing as a professional lice treatment service. I  immediately called you and you sent Diane to us. She was a godsend and got rid of all of the lice. We are so grateful to all of you!” Mei C. in Takoma Park, Maryland

  • “When we were babysitting for our grandchildren while our son was away, we saw them scratching their heads incessantly. We called the doctor who told us what to look for to see if they had head lice. When we confirmed that that was the case, she advised us to call LiceDoctors right away. We followed her advice which was a good thing. The lovely life lady pulled out hundreds of eggs and bugs. There is no way that we could've done this on our own. The rest of our stay with our grandchildren was a breeze after this thanks to LiceDoctors.” Diane and Marty B. in Silver Spring, Maryland
