Cincinnati, OH, April 23, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- LiceDoctors Head Lice Treatment and Nit Removal Service reports that it is seeing record numbers of cases of head lice in Cincinnati, Ohio as well as in Columbus and Cleveland. Wendy Beck, expert and national speaker on the subject of head lice and owner of LiceDoctors with 18 years experience in the lice field, reports that each year, as the weather warms up, outdoor physical play picks up among children on play dates and on the playground. "The type of play that comes with warm weather lends itself to more transfer of head lice. Children are in closer contact in informal play as well as in more organized team sports. Helmets are shared and children hug their teammates in shows of enthusiasm."
Increased head-to-head contact translates to more cases of head lice, as children unwittingly pass along these unwanted critters. Often parents are unaware that their child has head lice. Not everyone is itchy and in some cases, parents treat their child and think that they have eradicated the lice infestation only to realize that the child still has an active case.
According to Beck, "Lice are mutating and becoming resistant to chemical treatments and have earned the name 'super lice'. In addition, the nit has a very hard shell which prevents penetration of the chemical into the shell and protects the baby louse. Parents often rely on chemical lice treatments to eradicate lice, and this is often counter-productive as it gives the family a false sense of security. The child then goes out and shares the remaining lice with his or her friends. It can be a big challenge for the untrained eye to render the child nit and lice free. Lice move quickly away from light and the nits are small and camouflage in the hair."
