Lice Troopers Research Proves Ineffectiveness of Chemical Head Lice Treatments – Professionals Recommend a Safer, More Effective Approach

Experts agree that chemical treatments are ineffective in treating and eradicating head lice; combing deemed as the better, safer option.

There's no need to expose kids to harsh pesticides for treating head lice. Manual removal is safer and more effective.

In spite of the claims made by various over-the-counter lice removal treatments, and even the endorsements made by the American Pediatric Association, recent research has shown that chemical treatments are completely ineffective in killing head lice. In addition to their ineffectiveness, the treatments have also been found to be toxic with a string of unpleasant side effects.

The National Pediculosis Association recommends using the combing method over commonly used chemical treatments for removing head lice and nits. Their stance on the matter is backed up by research conducted by Consumer Reports, which studied the effectiveness of these over-the-counter as well as prescription lice treatments.

Through comprehensive testing, it has been revealed that the aforementioned treatments do not quite live up to their promises and claims. Instead, they can cause an individual to experience chemical burns, itchy eyes, and seizures, and in extreme cases, may even cause death. Moreover, using these chemical is also extremely dangerous for households that have pets and can even put their lives at risk.

According to scientific studies, the most effective treatment approach is detecting the lice at an early stage, as soon as the symptoms begin to show, through combing. This manual method of eliminating lice is a natural and non-toxic way that has no repercussions on either children or adults.

While the treatment itself can be quite time consuming if performed by parents themselves at home, professional lice removal services such as Lice Troopers may be called for an in-home inspection and effective treatment within two hours. “Manually removing head lice through combing is far more effective than any of the harmful chemical treatments made available at drugstores, or extensive home remedies which do not produce results,” said a spokesperson for the company.

In light of the recent lice infestations that have occurred in Florida, this form of professional treatment is a comforting and convenient option for parents who can simply call over the company and have their child treated safely and effectively in a matter of hours.
