Tulsa, OK, April 30, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- LiceDoctors Head Lice Treatment and Nit Removal Service reports that there is a surge in the number of cases that it is seeing in Tulsa, Oklahoma and surrounding areas. Wendy Beck, owner of LiceDoctors with 18 years of experience as a lice professional, states that the increase in incidence of lice is to be expected for the is time of the year. She attributes the gain to the increase in outdoor play with its related close contact which facilitates transmission of lice, as well as to the growing resistance of head lice to chemical treatments.
Over the past several years, lice have mutated and often are immune to chemical lice treatments that previously were efficacious in killing head lice. In addition, some of the more effective lice killing agents have been removed from pediculocides owing to their potentially carcinogenic effects. "We have treated thousands of cases of families over the past 18 years who have used the chemical shampoos and still see live bugs in their hair. These resistant head lice carry the name 'super lice'. To eliminate these eggs (nits) is an arduous task unless you are trained. The nits glue themselves to the strands of hair and must be pulled out. The eggs are quite small and are have a clear shell which allows them to blend in with the hair color making them hard to see for the untrained eye. Often people think that they have gotten out all of the nits, when in fact a couple are left behind to hatch and then the case goes on and on," Beck explains.
LiceDoctor has recently been called about cases of head lice in neighboring towns to Tulsa, as well, including Bixby, Carbondale, Jenks, Mingo, Sand Springs, and Garden City.
