Families Face Head Lice Outbreak in Orange County, California According to LiceDoctors Lice Professionals
Irvine, CA, July 02, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Head lice tend to intervene each summer and have a way of upsetting even the calmest of families. This summer, LiceDoctors Head Lice Treatment and Nit Removal Service reports that it is seeing record numbers of cases of head lice in Orange County, California much to the consternation of local folks. 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 summer begins, outdoor physical play picks up among children on play dates and on the playground. "The type of play that comes with the summer months and 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 passed around and children jump all over their teammates in shows of enthusiasm."
Increased head-to-head contact translates to more cases of head lice, as children unwittingly share these unwanted bugs. Often parents don't realize that that their child has head lice. Not everyone manifests signs of lice and in some cases, parents treat their child and think that they have gotten past the lice infestation only to realize that the child still has an active case.
According to Beck, "Lice are adapting and becoming immune to chemical treatments and therefore are often called '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 scoot away from light and the nits are tiny and blend into in the hair."
