Portsmouth FAQs

How big is a louse?
Full grown lice are about the size of a sesame seed. Varying sizes of lice are usually found in an active infestation. When lice are first laid they are tiny. Your Portsmouth technician can find lice of any size.
I’ve been treating my family for head lice for a while but it keeps coming back. Do we have “super lice” or am I doing something wrong?
If you find live bugs in your hair in Portsmouth immediately after treatment with a pesticide shampoo, the chances are good that you do, in fact, have “super lice”. If you don’t see any live bugs for a week or two after treatment then it is likely that all of the eggs were removed from the hair. A more detailed explanation can be found in our blog “Resistant Head Lice or Why Are Head Lice Challenging to Eliminate?”
Should I stay away from people to avoid getting head lice?
No, it is not necessary to isolate yourself from people to avoid getting head lice. We do recommend that you avoid head-to-head contact with people to avoid getting head lice, but lice do not jump or fly so staying far away from people is not something you need to do to keep from getting lice. It is not realistic to stay isolated from people in Portsmouth or anywhere.

Client Testimonials

  • “My daughter had a leading role in the school play for which she had prepared for months. The last thing she needed was to find head lice two days before she was supposed to go on stage, but that is exactly what happened. She was hysterical and I could barely hold it together either. I called the pediatrician told me to contact Lice Doctors. I called them and they made a house call and they got rid of the lice. My daughter was able to start in the show and we have not seen single bug since they left. You made a little girl and her family very happy!”  Taylor P. in Portsmouth, Virginia

  • “We were stuck in traffic and my daughter could not stop scratching her head we had time and I started looking through her hair and I nearly freaked out when I saw bugs crawling in there. Even I could make that diagnosis. I got on the Internet and found LiceDoctors do a simple search. Their website was very informative and I was absolutely certain that was a hard path to solving the problem. I was totally correct they did a very competent and professional job and now the lights are thing of the past.”  Kiara V. in Portsmouth, VA.

  • “I am a grandma who spent a week with her grandchildren while my daughter and son-in-law or abroad. With horror I noticed my Granddaughter incessantly scratching her head. We did not have head lice to deal with when my kids were young so I wasn’t sure what to do. I called my other daughter who called LiceDoctors and set up an appointment for us. Very nice lice lady came to the home, got me to relax, and took over from there. What a wonderful service they provide. I honestly don’t know what I would’ve done without the LiceDoctors.” Debra N. in Smithfield, Virginia

Lice Tips

Resistant Lice or Why Lice are Challenging to Eliminate

Red and gold and silver Iron Man action figures posed symmetrically.
Many parents start the treatment process by buying and trying drugstore head lice remedies. After following the directions and applying the medication, they are dismayed to see that bugs are still alive on the head. Some folks do not see anything following treatment but a week or two later they do. Still others are surprised to find eggs in the hair a few weeks after treatment. What has happened?

School Policy

Portsmouth School Lice Policies

Colorful lego style building blocks arranged to spell KIDS
Schools in Portsmouth, Virginia have a “no nit” lice policy, but are becoming more lenient with respect to allowing students with nits to return to school if they are being treated. The district sends kids home with live lice, but if they have nits that are not close to the scalp, occasionally, they are allowed to remain and are expected to be treated at home.
