Experts Say Not to Panic Over Head Lice

Our goal is to help parents prevent infestations at home and epidemics at school. By being aware of head lice, what they look like and how they spread, parents can help stop a major outbreak before it starts.

The head louse, a sturdy bug that isn’t easily eliminated, often seems like an insurmountable foe to naturally concerned parents. But experts tell parents to remain calm during lice outbreaks, according to a Health report on March 7. “Head lice don’t carry diseases or indicate poor parenting or housekeeping,” Dr. Karen Sheehan, a pediatric emergency medicine specialist at the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, told Health.

Many assume that a clean home and frequently bathed kids equal prevention, but Arie Harel, owner and operator of Lice Troopers, a lice removal service in Florida, points out that lice often prefer clean hair.

Lice are preventable, detectable, and treatable as long as the condition is well understood. These parasites live exclusively in the hair. They do not fly or jump, but can be passed via head-to-head contact or on any object that comes into contact with the hair such as brushes, combs, hats, coats and sports equipment.

“Our goal is to educate parents and help prevent infestations at home and epidemics at school. By being aware of head lice, what they look like and how they spread, parents can help stop a major outbreak before it starts,” Harel says.

According to Harel, a major step in preventing epidemics is screening. Many schools conduct regular screening sessions, which is important because even one case of head lice can turn into a school wide plague. “The earlier these cases are detected, the sooner the affected children can be treated -- stopping the outbreak in its tracks,” he says.

If parents do discover head lice, the condition should be treated immediately. Head lice will not go away on their own so they must be removed; And the safest and most effective way to do this is by combing. Many parents are now looking to professional services that take the hassle and stress out of lice removal. No need for endless weeks of combing or toxic drug store treatments, head lice removal professionals take care of the problem in approximately an hour with a service that is guaranteed effective. This helps to get rid of the problem faster and gets kids back into school lice free.
