Orange County California Sees Big Spike in Incidence of Head Lice, Reports LiceDoctors Lice Removal Service

LiceDoctors Lice Treatment and Nit Removal Service reports that it is seeing a big jump in the incidence of head lice in Orange County, California, especially in and around Cypress. According to owner, Karen Sokoloff, "We have had several calls lately from this area. Kids seem to be spreading it around their families, at play dates, and at school."

Cypress, CA, April 29, 2017 --( Many parents in Orange County 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 and around Orange County.

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 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 Orange County and we need to break the cycle so that families can resume their normal activities. We have received a number of calls from Cypress, Anaheim, Los Alamitos, Garden Grove, and Buena Park, among others.

Becca J. a parent with two school age children, is one such example. "I saw my daughter scratching her head. That was frightening because I know it is going around the school. Parents are upset because kids with lice cases are staying in school and spreading it to others. I guess it was our turn."

Sokoloff recommends that parents check their children on a regular basis, such as every week or every other week, using bright light or natural outdoor light. "You are searching for nits (lice eggs) the size of a sesame seed or smaller and they have a pointy front. Nits have a translucent shell and are glued to the hair. Most people will show signs of itching but not everyone will. Some people have hundreds of nits and aren't itchy at all. If you find lice, we do not recommend chemicals because lice are now resistant to these products. Either try to hand pick yourself or call in a professional who knows what to look for and guarantees their work."

LiceDoctors has been treating families with head lice for many years and has safely and effectively treated infestations in over 300,000 children and adults. Technicians make house calls and use all-natural protocols. LiceDoctors is the only lice removal service in California with a medical doctor on staff. According to Sokoloff, "Clients are happy that we make the process as convenient as possible by making house calls; this offers total privacy and flexibility for each family member to resume his or her schedule rather that having to wait for others at a salon. Our treatments always work and come with a 30 day guarantee."
