LiceDoctors Reports Summer Camps and Play Dates Bring on Lice Outbreak in Tampa, Florida
Tampa, FL, July 13, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- LiceDoctors Head Lice Treatment and Nit Removal Service reports that they are seeing a big increase in the number of cases in Tampa, Florida and surrounding areas. Wendy Beck, owner of LiceDoctors, states that an increase in incidence of lice is typical for this time of the year, but is greater than expected, and she attributes the gain to increasing resistance of head lice to chemical treatments.
Over the past several years, lice have altered and are no longer vulnerable to chemical lice treatments that formerly were effective. "We have seen many cases of families over the past 18 years who have used the chemical shampoos and still see moving lice in their hair. These resistant head lice are called 'super lice.' To eradicate these nits is difficult to do unless you are trained. The nits stick to the hair shaft with glue and must be physically extracted. These nits camouflage so may be hard to see for the untrained eye. If you leave one or two nits, in the hair, they will hatch and your case will continue," Beck explains.
According to Beck, one of the pioneers in the professional head lice service industry who has spoken on the subject around the country, "LiceDoctors is proud of our track record. We have treated over 100,000 people and have a 99.9% success rate. We have an 'A' rating with the Better Business Bureau."
