By taking a few simple precautions, parents can minimize the risk of a head lice infestation.
Miami, Florida (PRWEB) May 17, 2015
Local Miami-Dade area lice removal company has reported an increase in the number of cases of head lice across schools in south Florida. While as of yet there is no need to panic over a full-blown lice epidemic, parents are looking to do whatever they can to avoid it, or at the very least, get rid of it as quickly as possible. Here’s what parents should know about head lice.
Each year, between 6 and 12 million individuals will suffer a case of head lice. It isn't typically a dangerous situation, but it does require attention as they do not go away on their own; the longer they are left without treatment, the more they multiply, causing distress to the individual and increasing the chances of spreading the condition to others.
The head louse is a parasite which passes via head-to-head contact or via items that come in contact with the hair such as hairbrushes, towels, bedding, hats, scarves, coats and sports equipment such as helmets. The first step in avoiding the condition is to try to avoid sharing these items with others, but in a school setting, eliminating this kind of contact can be difficult, if not impossible. Once even one louse makes its way to an individual’s hair, it begins to work its way toward the scalp, multiplying and laying eggs that will multiply its number.
The key is to do the best you can in minimizing contact, while screening children regularly. The sooner a case of head lice is discovered, the easier it is to deal with, minimizing your child’s distress as well as the risk of spreading it to others. While some parents will choose over-the-counter methods or will experiment with any number of home remedies, parents are increasingly looking to professional lice removal services to take care of the problem.
