Summertime: LiceDoctors Warns Charleston Parents to Check Their Campers for Head Lice

Summer is peak lice season and LiceDoctors, a national lice removal service, advises parents to be on the look-out for head lice. Children in camp are particularly susceptible to head lice as they frequently come into close contact with other children. Lice are generally transmitted through head to head contact.

Charleston, SC, July 26, 2017 --( As children frolic at camp, they come into close contact with other campers. LiceDoctors Lice Removal Service, the largest lice treatment service in the Charleston area, reports that they are seeing a surge in the incidence of head lice and they warn parents to be on the lookout for these critters.

According to Karen Sokoloff, owner of LiceDoctors, "We have been treating children for 20 years and each year at this time, we are inundated with calls from nervous parents whose kids are at camp. They may hear about an outbreak from their child or they may see their child doing a lot of head scratching. We are prepared to come to the homes of families with very little notice and help them to eradicate the lice before other family members pick up a bug."

Over the summer months and into early fall, 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."

Anne J, a mother of 2 girls in Charleston, reports, "I keep hearing more stories about kids with head lice. It seems to be an epidemic. When my older daughter started scratching a couple of weeks ago, I called in the pros. My friends had given me a good report on LiceDoctors and I knew enough not to tackle this on my own. I'm glad I went the route that I did."
