Bakersfield Families Experience Increase in the Incidence of Head Lice
While most people are keeping an eye out for Covid, head lice have stealthily made their way on to heads of kids in the Bakersfield area, according to owner of LiceDoctors, Karen Sokoloff.
According LiceDoctors owner, Karen Sokoloff, "The incidence usually begins with a couple of kids who play with other kids and they likely don't even know that one of them has lice. We are surprised at the number of calls we have been getting in Bakersfield, since many kids are at home."
Sokoloff recommends that parents check their children on a weekly basis using bright light or natural outdoor light. "You are looking for eggs the size of a small seed. They have a clear shell and are stuck to the hair. Most people will be itchy but not everyone will be. If you find lice, do not use chemical lice products as lice have mutated and are resistant to these products. Either try to comb them out yourself yourself or call in a professional who knows what to look for and guarantees the work."
LiceDoctors has gotten rid of head lice in over 500,000 clients. Technicians to to clients' homes and have access to a protocol based on the science of lice that was developed 20 years ago by Dr. Stephen Beck, their on-staff medical doctor. According to Sokoloff, "The protocols technicians use are always free of chemicals. Clients love that we make the process as private and safe as possible by making house calls; this offers total privacy and total flexibility for each family member to resume his or her schedule rather that having to wait for others at a salon. The plan always works and we offer a full guarantee. Best of all, there is no need to potentially expose your child to Covid or other illnesses by going to a public salon."
