Savannah, GA, May 05, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- As spring blooms in full in Savannah, Georgia, families all over the area are dealing with a real nuisance: head lice. The incidence of head lice is growing and affects many school children and their families on a random basis. Head lice are transmitted from head to head and the more people who have it, the more it gets passed around. In addition, head lice have become resistant to common treatment chemicals and the failure of these products to work on a consistent basis also contributes to the ubiquity of head lice.
Families often become overwhelmed when trying to combat head lice. After applying pesticide shampoos and endeavoring to remove eggs that are small and camouflage in the hair, many folks are frustrated and disappointed to see that lice and eggs are still present. LiceDoctors Head Lice Treatment and Nit Removal Service realized a need for a service that actually follows through with its claim of effectively eradicating lice. The company's treatment plan is based on a copyrighted treatment protocol that was developed 20 years ago by the company's on-staff medical doctor, Dr. Stephen Beck. It is chemical-free and safe.
Besides being the only lice removal service in Georgia with an in-house physician, LiceDoctors has unique qualifications of having 140,000 successfully treated clients, an "A" rating with the Better Business Bureau, convenience of in-home treatment, and available appointments days and nights every day of the year, as well as competitive pricing. The company's success is largely driven by its highly effective treatment and experienced and caring technicians.
According to LiceDoctors owner, Karen Sokoloff, who is an expert in the field and has educated audiences across the United States about head lice, "The reality is that chemical lice treatments do not penetrate the shell of the lice egg (nit) to kill the baby louse (nymph) inside, therefore they are far from reliable. The nits eventually hatch and the nymphs are released and then mature and reproduce and the cycle continues. LiceDoctors treatment process breaks the cycle by physically extracting lice eggs or nits from the hair. Our technicians are experts and their presence in the home is generally a calming factor. LiceDoctors is recommended by pediatricians, school nurses, and school and camp directors and our biggest source of referrals is from happy and relieved clients!"
Many school districts in the Savannah area have dropped their "no nit" school policies. In accordance with recommendations from leading medical associations such as the American Academy of Pediatrics and the National Association of School Nurses, Savannah schools have dropped their "no nit" school policies. While this allows children to miss fewer days of school, it may be contributing to the rise in incidence of head lice. Neighboring school districts such as Bryan, Pooler, Hinesville, and Ludowici have all retained their "no nit" school lice policies.
