New Orleans, LA, September 02, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Schools in New Orleans and neighboring areas are experiencing some unwanted guests, known as head lice, as children settle in. LiceDoctors Head Lice Removal Service advises parents to be on the look out for head lice. The months of August through October show the greatest incidence of head lice.
According to Karen Sokoloff of LiceDoctors, reports that every year with the end of camp and the beginning of school, there are major occurrences of head lice in communities across the US. "This year we are seeing an increase in the incidence of head lice among school age children in New Orleans, as well as in Metaire, Marrero, Slidell, Covington, Abita Springs and many other areas," reports Ms. Sokoloff, who has been treating families with head lice for many years.
Ms. Sokoloff asserts that the increase largely to a growing resistance to the chemical treatments. "LiceDoctors receives many calls each day, mostly from people who have tried and failed to eliminate the nits and live bugs with the chemical shampoos. The problem gets worse when parents assume that their children are then lice and nit-free, when in fact they are not, and then the children come to school in a contagious state." In addition, school nurses check students' heads for head lice when they return to school, often detecting cases that have been festering over the summer. Not everyone has symptom with head lice; some children have it and do not itch at all.
