Safely Removing Head Lice

It’s no secret that getting rid of head lice in your family can be stressful and time-consuming—a real-life nightmare. Most do-it-yourself lice treatments require repeated applications, tedious comb-outs, and nitpicking, with no guarantee of success. If one nit is missed, the lice will return. So how to get rid of these pesky bugs?

Lice Clinics of America – Round Rock, Texas offers an immediate, FDA-cleared, guaranteed solution and our professional technicians do it for you so you can skip the mess and the endless combing.

Treating head lice have become more difficult over the years as they have developed resistance to most of the do-it-yourself kits. The most recent study of these so-called “super lice” published in the Journal of Medical Entomology found that 98 percent of head lice in 48 U.S. states are now immune to pyrethroids, the class of pesticides used by Over-The-Counter (OTC) lice products. Pyrethroids have also been linked to developmental and behavioral problems in children. When you try and utilize pesticides that are no longer effective, it is not uncommon for people to struggle with head lice for several weeks. That can turn into a real nightmare. That’s why we offer head lice removal in about just an hour!

Where Do Head Lice Come From And How Do You Get Them?

We typically hear, people have an infestation at school, summer camps, or day care and think that their kids can get lice just by passing other students, athletes, or peers who have it. The fact is that head lice don’t jump, swim or fly. Simply put, without actual strands of hair to grab onto with their claws that are on their legs, they have a very hard time moving around. They can crawl quickly through hair strands, so coming into direct hair contact with someone else that has lice is how a scratchy problem can start. It doesn’t take much for a louse to hitch a ride on one single strand of your hair and make its way home to your scalp. But there are some common myths that still have some people scratching their heads:

  • Only those with bad hygiene get head lice
    • Myth: Lice aren’t choosey. They only care that you are part human. The lice spread through head-to-head contact, and even that it doesn’t guarantee infestation, but chances are most likely then. That’s why we suggest not to share hats, combs, scarves, or other items like that.
  • Pets can carry head lice
    • Myth: Sorry, you can’t blame a head lice infestation on poor Rufus! The specific lice strain that affects us, humans are actually host-specific. This means that they prefer the taste of humans, and Rufus’ blood just doesn’t satisfy what they are looking for.
  • If someone is scratching their head non-stop, they must have lice
    • Myth: Though scratching can be a first sign indicator someone may have head lice; it is not the only reason someone may be itching. They may have a case of dry skin or seborrheic dermatitis could be the reason for scratching the scalp excessively.

We know, we have been there ourselves! Dealing with head lice can make anyone go into a panic, but there is no need to worry.
