PRLog - March 4, 2014 - SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- According to LiceDoctors Head Lice and Nit Removal Service, Sacramento has faced its share of head lice in recent years. In 2010, 10% of the students at Del Dayo Elementary School were sent home with head lice. Other schools in the area have also had a number of children with head lice.
While Sacramento schools have dropped their "no nit" policy, a policy that required students to be nit free before being allowed to re-enter school once diagnosed, students are still sent home to be treated for live lice.
Enter LiceDoctors. According to owner, Wendy Beck, "We have received so many calls from the Sacramento area, that we decided to expand our service area there. The reason we are so successful in eradicating the lice is that we have a very systematic approach which was developed by our physician medical director 18 years ago. The protocol includes our triple dry combing strategy, in which we clear out the nits (eggs) from three distinct angles. In addition, LiceDoctors' plan includes an educational component. While we are treating the kids, we show parents what lice and nits look like, how to kill lice, and what to do to prevent another case of lice. We explain why chemical lice medications have diminished effectiveness and show parents what they should and should not do to treat lice in the home. We also give parents advice on how to help prevent lice infestations down the road. The more information the family has, the better armed they are to deal with a lice situation should it occur in a year, 2 or 3 or more in the future."
