Denver, CO, October 10, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Schools are in full swing in the Denver area, and this year is presenting itself with an unusually high number of head lice according to LiceDoctors, a leading lice treatment service in the area. The company has received a number of calls from many families in many area-wide cities including Denver, Boulder, Greenwood Village, Arvada, Littleton, Fort Collins, and many more.
Whenever children are in close contact with others, such as in the classroom, there is a chance that head lice will be transferred from head to head. According to Karen Sokoloff, owner of LiceDoctors, "We recently heard from a school nurse in the Denver, who said she had identified several cases of lice in the school. She was seeking our advice as a recent study has shown that head lice have become highly resistant to chemical treatments."
LiceDoctors discussed with her that chemical treatments are often ineffective as the lice have mutated. The good news is there are all-natural methods which are 100% effective in treating the lice infestation, including LiceDoctors' protocol. During this peak lice season, it’s important to be up the learning curve on head lice so you can identify lice in the event that your child has contracted a case.
LiceDoctors Head Lice Treatment Service offers families the following tips:
· Some people have no symptoms of head lice, not even an itchy scalp, so it is important to check your child regularly to see if you see any nits in the hair.
· Post holiday season, spend some time checking hair with a bright lamp to see if you find anything translucent stuck to the hair. Nits are look brownish, as they are translucent, encasing a baby bug called a nymph. Nits are attached 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 spray or 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 plan to spend the night with family or friends.
· Post holiday season, be especially careful not to share hairbrushes, combs, hats, scarves, towels, sleeping bags, etc.
· If your child is infested with lice, 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 nits 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 accelerate A lice infestation will not go away by itself.
