Milwaukee Wisconsin Sees Jump in Incidence of Head Lice Due to Resistant "Super Lice"
LiceDoctors Head Lice Treatment Service reports that it is seeing a sharp climb in the number of cases of head lice in Milwaukee, Wisconsin due in part to the growing prevalence of "super lice" as well as the warming weather.
Over the past several years, lice have become increasingly able to repel chemical lice treatments that previously were effective. In addition, some of the more effective lice killing agents have been removed from the products because of their potentially carcinogenic effects. "We have treated thousands of cases of families over the past 18 years who have used the chemical lice products and still see live lice crawling on their heads. These resistant head lice are dubbed super lice'. To eliminate these eggs (nits) is an arduous task unless you are trained. The nits are stuck to the strands of hair and must be removed. The eggs are quite small and are have a clear shell which allows them to blend in with the hair color making them hard to see for the untrained eye. Often people think that they have rid themselves of nits, when in fact this is not the case and then they become frustrated."
