Schools in Phoenix and Chandler Arizona Experience Recent Head Lice Outbreak

Several children in the Phoenix and Chandler, Arizona areas have come down with cases of head lice over the past few weeks reports LiceDoctors Head Lice Treatment and Nit Removal who services families in the area in their own homes.

Chandler, AZ, November 27, 2013 --( Outbreaks of head lice in the Phoenix and Chandler, Arizona areas have touched the lives of several children according to LiceDoctors, a head lice treatment and nit removal service who has been treating families in the Phoenix vicinity for many years.

According to LiceDoctors owner, Karen Sokoloff, "Head lice come in waves and currently we are seeing many children in this area with head lice. Particularly hard hit recently have been Phoenix and Chandler." Chandler Schools principal Mel Wood announced as far back as May of 2013 that in Chandler, "We have had an outbreak of headlice at school. Could everyone please check their childrens' hair and treat if they find evidence of head lice?" The school has sent home information to parents to help them deal with the incidence.

Head lice are very contagious and are transmitted primarily through head to head contact. Head lice are most active in warm weather so the Phoenix area climate is conducive to the spread of head lice, although lice do live in colder climates as well. According to Sokoloff, the only way to get rid of lice is to remove all the nits (eggs) as well to kill the lice. "Hearty strains of head lice, called 'super lice', abound and chemical shampoos do not work well to kill these lice. The only way to end a case of head lice is to remove all the nits and bugs from the hair. Nothing penetrates the shell of the nit so you have to use an effective lice treatment that involves physically pulling all nits from the hair shaft."

LiceDoctors has been using its all natural lice treatment system successfully for many years. The treatment protocol was developed by its board certified medical director 18 years ago and is guaranteed to work. For same day, in home lice service in the Phoenix Arizona area call 602-753-0289.
