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.
MILWAUKEE - June 3, 2014 - PRLog -- LiceDoctors Head Lice Treatment and Nit Removal Service in Milwaukee, Wisconsin is overwhelmed with calls from anxious parents who are dealing with head lice infestaions in their children.   Wendy Beck, owner of LiceDoctors with 18 years of experience as a lice professional, states that the increase in incidence of lice is to be expected for the is time of the year, but is higher than normal.. She attributes the gain to the increase in outdoor play with its related close contact which facilitates transmission of lice, as well as to the growing resistance of head lice to chemical treatments.

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." Beck explains.

LiceDoctor has received calls recently from a number of Milwaukee suburbs including  Brookfield, Cedarburg, Cudahy, Delafield, Glendale, Greendale, Hamilton, Merton, and several others. The company has successfully treated over 110,000 people and has an 'A" rating with the Better Business Bureau.
