On-staff Medical Director, Dr. Stephen Beck, took a personal interest in head lice when he noticed his patients were not finding the relief they once found with pesticide over-the-counter and prescription lice treatments. With the growing incidence of “super lice”, he recognized the need for a lice treatment that would work. After completing his research, he found a treatment that was all-natural, safe, and effective for everyone in the family.

Cambridge and Brookline FAQs

DO PEOPLE GET HEAD LICE BECAUSE THEY DON’T WASH THEIR HAIR REGULARLY?
No. This is a common myth that only adds to the negative stigma of having head lice. Head lice do not care about your socioeconomic status or how often you choose to wash your hair. If you have hair, you can get head lice. Cambridge and Brookline children often bring these pests home and share them with the whole family.
CAN YOU SEE HEAD LICE?
Yes, bugs are very tiny and move fast, but you can see them without the aid of any type of microscope or magnification. The problem is that they don’t usually reveal themselves owing to self-preservation. As soon as the light is aimed at the head, these bugs make themselves scarce. It is easier to see their eggs than it is to find an elusive bug. When in doubt, call in an expert Cambridge and Brookline lice technician from LiceDoctors.
I HAVE A SHIH-TZU BREED DOG, WHICH GROWS HAIR AND DOESN’T HAVE ACTUAL FUR. CAN MY DOG GET OR TRANSMIT HEAD LICE?
No. Even though this particular breed of dog has actual hair, they cannot get human head lice. Human head lice is species-specific and needs the warmth of the human head, specifically 98.6 degrees, to survive. We often reassure families in Cambridge and Brookline but they cannot get lice from their pets
