LiceDoctors Advises Tucson to Beware of Lice as Incidence Peaks After Holidays

Local LiceDoctors Lice Removal Service advises families to be on the look-out for head lice following the Thanksgiving family holiday season. Head lice are usually transmitted through head to head contact and family togetherness encourages the spread.

Tucson, AZ, December 02, 2014 --( Post-Thanksgiving holiday and Tucson families need to be alert for head lice left by their visiting families and friends. Yes, when families and friends get together for the holidays, head lice have a field day. The more people who are gathered, the greater the opportunity to spread from one person to another. Head lice are generally transmitted via head to head contact, therefore, children playing together encourages transmission.

Years of experience enables LiceDoctors Lice Treatment and Nit Removal Service to report that there is always an upswing in the incidence of lice. With Thanksgiving, immediately following by the December holidays, the head lice company is quite busy.

As chemical treatments are often ineffective, it is especially important during the holiday season to be educated about head lice. LiceDoctors Head Lice Treatment Service offers valuable tips to families on ways to prevent, identify, and treat head lice so that you do not spin your wheels trying to treat case whose cure seems elusive:

· First, not everyone shows symptoms of head lice, not even an itcy scalp, so it is imperative to check your child regularly to see if you see any nits in the hair.
· When your child returns from a play date or school, spend a few minutes checking with a bright lamp to see if you find anything translucent stuck to the hair. Nits are look brownish, as they are translucent, housing a bug inside. They are glued to the hair and do not flake off like dandruff nor are they white like hair casts. Bugs have six legs and they crawl; they don’t fly.
· Children with long hair should wear their hair up in a braid or bun. The less accessible that the hair is, the more difficult it is for the bugs to get into it.
· Apply gel, mousse or sprayor a peppermint lice repellent in your child’s hair. These products put a protective layer on the hair, which makes it more difficult for the bug to attach to the hair.
· Bring your own pillows if you are spending the night with friends or extended family. Sleep overs are common venues for passing along lice infestations.
· Encourage your children to avoid sharing items including hairbrushes, combs, hats, scarves, towels, helmets, sleeping bags, etc.
· If you find your child has head lice, you can attempt to treat it yourself. Comb through the hair while wet. After combing, pull out any remaining nits. In order to eradicate a case of head lice, you must remove every nit. If you leave one or two nits in the hair, the case will start all over again. Heads are infested, on average, two-four weeks before you discover you’ve got lice
· Keep in mind that lice infestations are sometimes difficult to diagnose as the eggs camouflage in the hair and the lice move very quickly. If you leave one louse or a couple of eggs in the hair, your problem will continue to get worse. A lice infestation will not spontaneously recede.
·If you feel that a lice professional would be helpful, give LiceDoctors a call and we can come to your home at your convenience and get rid of your head lice. We guarantee it. Make sure whichever company you call gives you a 100% guarantee on their head lice removal service.
