HEAD LICE: Unwelcome Bunk Mates at Summer Camp

Share Article

Don't let lice ruin your summer fun! Lice Treatment Center has a plan to protect your child and your budget during this time of peak outbreaks. LTC is pediatrician owned and operated.

Along with the usual gear packed for children headed to summer camps across the nation, many parents are adding lice treatment products designed to prevent pedicuolosis capitas, or head lice. Although head lice are not dangerous, they can ruin summer fun and close camps because the itchy infestation spreads easily through close personal contact and sharing personal belongings—and no child or adult is immune. In fact, children or staff members with head lice are barred from attending most camps. http://www.licetreatmentcenter.net/pageCamp.php

Like most parasitic invasions, the earlier head lice are discovered and treated, the better. But preventing the infestation altogether is preferred in order to reduce the risk of spreading head lice to friends, family, and fellow campers. Parents can help reduce the risks by performing screenings before, during, and immediately after the camping experience. http://www.licetreatmentcenter.net/Home_Lice_Removal.html

Screening Procedure:

  •     Check the entire head, especially around the ears and back of the neck
  •     Look for nits (eggs) that are light brown and oval in shape that are attached to the hair shaft closest to the scalp and remove them.
  •     Perform head lice checks regularly throughout the summer to catch infestations early

If lice are discovered, it’s not the end of the world. There are many lice treatment products on the market today as well as trained lice treatment professionals who are available to come to your home to treat a lice infestation. According to the Centers for Disease Control, there are an estimated 6 million to 12 million cases of head lice infestations per year just in children--ages 3 to 11 years. http://888liceaway.wordpress.com/

Lice Treatment Center has been 5 years in business, with over 15,000 lice infestations effectively treated by LTC technicians using with Jolis Cheveux™ products. Their camp lice insurance program is 100% effective and is an authorized product through Walgreen's Pharmacies.

Dr. Elin Cohen, a Connecticut pediatrician and Elizabeth Solovay, a successful business woman founded the Lice Treatment Center, LLC in 2006. After some of their own children contracted lice infestations that seemed impossible to cure, the busy mothers combined their experience and determination to create a company that offered comprehensive, effective and safe method to help others facing similar outbreaks.

Dr. Cohen, the medical director of Lice Treatment Center, formulated and tested a line of all-natural, non-toxic lice treatment and prevention products that are now sold nationally under the brand name Jolis Cheveux™ without a prescription, including in selected Walgreen’s stores. In addition to its on-site lice treatment services, LTC now offers Lice Insurance™ head check programs to schools and camps throughout the U.S. Since its founding, Lice Treatment Center has successfully treated more than 20,000 families from coast to coast.
