Lice Advice

Frequently Asked Questions

What are head lice?
Head lice are tiny six-legged blood-sucking parasites. Each leg is equipped with a claw, enabling the lice to grasp onto the shaft of the child’s hair. They can vary in color from grayish white to reddish brown. Head lice, like chameleons, have the ability to adapt to their environment.

How do we get head lice?
In almost all cases, lice are transmitted from one human host to another, brought about mainly as a result of head-to-head contact.

How do I know for sure that my child has head lice?
The most obvious way is the usual itchy scalp so commonly, but not always, found in head lice cases. The only way to confirm your suspicions, however, is by a thorough examination of your child’s hair. Making head lice exams a part of your regular routine will allow you to identify the problem at its onset and thus prevent head lice from taking over your family, your home and your life. To be on the safe side, let us check your child. The first time you come you pay $25 and receive a Terminator comb for home use.
What do I do if I find head lice?
If you find head lice on your child’s head, take care of the problem right away. Each day wasted is an increased opportunity for reproduction, not to mention the additional chances of spreading to others. There are many options for lice removal. Of course, in our opinion, professional lice removal is the best. However, how you treat the problem is entirely up to you.
