PRLog - Feb. 16, 2014 - CLEARWATER, Fla. -- LiceDoctors Head Lice Treatment and Nit Removal Service reports that there is a surge in the number of cases that it is seeing in Tampa, Florida and surrounding areas, in particular in Clearwater. Wendy Beck, owner of LiceDoctors, states that the increase in incidence of lice is unusual for this time of the year, and she attributes the gain to increasing resistance of head lice to chemical treatments.
Over the past several years, lice have mutated and adapted to chemical lice treatments that formerly were effective in killing head lice. "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. These resistant head lice are called 'super lice". To get rid of the eggs (nits) is not easy to do unless you are trained. The nits adhere to the hair shaft with glue and must be pulled out. These nits tend to camouflage so can be hard to find for the untrained eye. If you leave one or two nits, in the hair, they will hatch and your case will continue.", Beck explains.
According to Beck, one of the pioneers in the professional head lice service industry with national renown, "LiceDoctors is proud of our track record. We have treated over 30,000 families and have a 99.9% success rate. We maintain an 'A" rating with the Better Business Bureau."
