PRLog - Jul. 11, 2014 - PITTSBURGH -- LiceDoctors Head Lice Treatment and Nit Removal Service in Pittsburgh and all surrounding areas is seeing record numbers of lice cases as the summer starts peak lice season. In order to help parents to minimize their chances of having to deal with head lice,  LiceDoctors offers familiies tips on how to avoid getting and transmitting head lice:

** Before sending children to camp or on play dates, carefully inspect child's hair by parting it into small sections. NOTE: using natural sunlight helps to see lice and nits more clearly.

**If you see signs of nits or lice, you must physically remove them by combing and handpicking them. In many cases, the drug store and Rx shampoos DO NOT take care of the problem as the lice have developed a resistance to the chemicals.

** If you are unsure of what to do or are overwhelmed by the number of nits/lice you find in the home, bring in a professional who will guarantee results.

** If you find signs of lice or nits in your child's hair, it is advisable to tell any friends who have been in close contact with your child so that child can eradicate her/his case and not give it back to your child

**To prevent a case of lice, use a repellent or gel or hairspray on your child as these products will make the hair artificially dirty which will in turn make it much more difficult for the lice to get to the scalp to feed.

** Make sure the hair is braided or up. The hair should be as close to the head as possible.

** Children should avoid putting their heads together. Bugs crawl from head to head; they do not fly. Head to head contact is by far the most common way to communicate lice.

** In addition, children should not share hair brushes, hair clips, towels, hats, helmuts or anything else that comes into contact with the hair. Bugs can live on those objects for a day or so.

** For children who have camp overnights or sleep-overs at friend's houses, it is advisable to bring your own pillow and do not share that pillow with anyone. If other kids sit on your child's bed during the day, you should wipe off the bed before she/he gets in at night.
