Lice Infection. Most parents know absolutely zero about head lice when they find out their kid has lice. This leads to a panic attack and an unnecessary run to CVS to load up on everything in the lice aisle. It then leads to unnecessary applications of pesticide lice shampoos to your kid’s head. Then parents spend untold hours throwing out the pillows and mattresses and vacuuming the whole house and car. Guess what? All of these myriad efforts are completely unnecessary and have absolutely no impact on getting rid of head lice on your kid, or kid’s, head(s).
Lice Infection. Here is the lowdown on head lice. Head lice don’t cause any disease. Head lice are not a reportable CDC condition. Head lice do not cause infection or health problems of any kind. Current pesticides commonly used for lice are no longer effective. So why all the fuss about head lice? Head Lice are simply confused with body lice, bed bugs, fleas and ticks. Head Lice are not any of these bugs and therefore have a totally different natural history than body lice, bed bugs, fleas and ticks. For example body lice live in clothing and bedding and can carry diseases. Bedbugs live in furniture and cracks in flooring and molding. Fleas live outdoors but can infest carpets inside a house. Ticks live outdoors but can be acquired by humans and pets and brought into the home. Whereas head lice live only in one place on the planet, the human scalp.
Due to massive misunderstanding about head lice it is misdiagnosed by pediatricians and dermatologists alike. How do we know this? Because we see many pediatricians and dermatologists in our NitWits office with their own children, looking for effective lice treatment. We have the OMG Nit-Free Terminator Comb right here in our NitWits office or you can pick one up online. Now that’s effective lice treatment!
