PRLog - Sep. 12, 2013 - FAIRFAX, Va. -- LiceDoctors Head Lice Treatment and Nit Removal Service reports that there is a surge in the number of cases that it is seeing Northern Virginia. Wendy Beck, owner of LiceDoctors, states that the increase in incidence of lice is based on the time of year, with warm weather and children in close contact with back to school, as well as increasing resistance to the chemical shampoos.
Over the past several years, lice have mutated and adapted to the pesticides that formerly were effective. In addition, some of the more efficacious chemicals have been removed as they were deemed dangerous. "We have seen thousands of cases of families over the past 18 years who have used the chemical shampoos and still see live bugs in their hair. The hearty strains of lice are dubbed 'super lice'. The only way to eliminate the nits is to physically pull them from the hair. The problem is that the nits are difficult to find and it oftens takes the trained eye of a professional to get them all out. If a couple remain in the hair, youthe case will persist.", reports Beck.
