Schools in Orlando Face Back-to-School Head Lice Woes
Orlando's LiceDoctors Lice Treatment and Nit Removal Service reports that September and October are the months when head lice are the most prevalent. Students in the Orlando area have returned to school and unfortunately, some have brought these unwanted bugs with them.
As schools open in Orlando, Florida and surrounding areas, children return from constant play dates and days at camp or the town pool, they have a higher chance of having and transmitting head lice. September and October are the busiest months for LiceDoctors.
"This year we are seeing an increase in the incidence of head lice among school age children in Orlando and surrounding areas including Altamonte Springs, Clermont, Conway, Lake Butler, Maitland, Oak Ridge, Saint Cloud, Winter Garden, Winter Park, Winter Springs and many other areas," reports Wendy Beck of LiceDoctors, who has been treating families with head lice for nearly 20 years, and speaks on the subject nationally.
Beck states that lice have become tougher and are often so resilient that they repel standard chemical lice treatments. "Parents use these treatments and then are shocked and disappointed to see that they have not gotten rid the infestation. We get calls from a lot of discouraged families. In order to truly eliminate a case of lice, you have to be able to extract all of the eggs. That is a labor-intensive process and it helps a lot if you know how to do and to recognize eggs that tend to camouflage in the hair. That's where LiceDoctors comes in."
LiceDoctors uses a protocol developed nearly 20 years ago by its physician medical director. It is an all-natural plan and is backed with the company's guarantee and carries the seal of approval from the Better Business Bureau.
