PRLog - July 15, 2014 - CINCINNATI -- Janice J. poses the questions that she says are on everyone's mind among her group of young mom friends in Cincinnati, Ohio: "Why are so many families dealing with head lice now? When we were kids, we hardly ever heard about head lice. What is going on?" According to LiceDoctors Head Lice Treatment and Nit Removal Service, the country's largest head lice treatment service, the incidence of head lice starts to grow in early summer and continues on that path through the back-to-school months. This year, the company is receiving double the number of calls as last year. LiceDoctors operates in 75 metro areas around the nation including in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, and Toledo in Ohio.
According to Wendy Beck, owner of LiceDoctors Head Lice Treament and Nit Removal Service, who is an expert in the field with 18 years experince, there are multiple reasons behind the rise in incidence. First,over the past several years lice have evolved to develop an immuntiy to chemical lice treatments that formerly were effective in killing head lice. "We have seen thousands of cases of families who have tried the chemical lice treatments and have failed to eradicate the case. To get rid of the eggs (nits) is an overwhelming task unless you know what you are doing, which takes training. The eggs glue themselves to the hair shaft and have to be pulled off. The shell is translucent adn they blend into the hair making them hard to see if your are not trained and have the proper equipment.If you leave behind a couple of nits, then you have not eliminated the case.", Beck explains.
When summer is in full swing and children are engaging in more head to head contact through informal play dates, at the local pool, or at summer camp, that is when there is increased chance of passing along these unwanted critters. Head to head contact is the primary means of transmitting lice. In addition, with more unstructured time that comes along with the summer months, parents often notice cases that may have been percolating in the hair for a couple of months.
According to Beck, "Parents sometimes attempt to deal with the case on their own which can be a source of frustration. LiceDoctors is proud of our track record. We have treated over 110,000 clients and have a 99.9% success rate. We have an 'A" rating with the Better Business Bureau. Clients love the privacy and convenience of our at-home service."
