Philadelphia, PA, May 31, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Many parents in Philadelphia and nearby towns are not happy; several cases of head lice have shown up in the area and are causing headaches for families. LiceDoctors Lice Treatment and Nit Removal Service reports that it has received several calls from exasperated parents looking for relief from this problem. LiceDoctors is a national lice removal service that makes house calls to families in Philadelphia and nearby towns.
According LiceDoctors owner, Karen Sokoloff, "Occasionally, we are barraged with calls from a single area. The incidence usually starts with a couple of kids who come to school, camp or go on play dates, and may not even realize that they are carrying lice. Before you know it, there are several children and their parents who have infestations. Right now, this is what is happening in Philadelphia and we need to break the cycle so that families can resume their normal activities. We have received a number of calls from Philadelphia as well as Collegeville, Villanova, Elkins Park, Valley Forge, Swarthmore, Norristown, and several others."
Melaine W., a parent with three school age children, is one such example. "I noticed the my two oldest kids were scratching like crazy and I had this sinking feeling. I looked in the hair but I was unsure of what I was looking for. I asked the school nurse to check and she confirmed that they were, in fact, loaded with lice. It was a nightmare for us."
Sokoloff recommends that parents check their children on a weekly basis using bright light or natural outdoor light. "You are looking for eggs the size of a sesame seed or smaller. They have a translucent shell and are glued to the hair. Most people will show signs of itching but not everyone will. If you find lice, we do not recommend chemicals as lice have mutated and are resistant to these products. Either try to hand pick yourself or call in a professional who knows what to look for and guarantees the work."
LiceDoctors has been treating families with head lice for many years and has tackled and cured infestations in over 150,000 children and adults. Technicians make house calls and use a protocol based on the science of lice that was developed 20 years ago by Dr. Stephen Beck, their on-staff medical doctor. According to Sokoloff, "We are the only lice company in Pennsylvania with an in-house medical doctor. The protocol we use is all-natural; it is a step-by-step plan and is executed through the expertise of our intensively trained technicians. Clients love that we make the process as convenient as possible by making house calls; this offers total privacy and total flexibility for each family member to resume his or her schedule rather that having to wait for others at a salon. The plan always works and we offer a full guarantee."
