Magic Potion (I Mean) Lotion to Get Rid of Head Lice?

There’s been a lot of press recently about the newest product in the battle against head lice, a prescription-only lotion which is applied for just ten minutes and is reported to not require subsequent head lice combing.  Sklice® which is topical ivermectin, received FDA approval in February and an article about it appeared recently in the The New England Journal of Medicine. So is it the … [Read more...]

Head lice removal specialist, Elimilice featured on NBC television affiliate, 11Alive

As Atlanta’s largest head lice removal company, Elimilice, was recently featured as the area's head lice expert in a television segment on NBC-affiliate, 11Alive.  I spoke with the reporter about how I got into this business (after my then 5 year old daughter contracted head lice three times in less than a year), how there is NO reason to be ashamed by having head lice as it is becoming more and … [Read more...]

The Purpose of Head Lice?

I had a client ask me the other day what the "purpose" of head lice is?  She said that she was a logical person and conveyed to me her thoughts on cockroaches' and spiders' purposes. I thought a bit, mentioned  that people have asked me where and when head lice originated but no one had ever asked me WHY they were here.  I truly could not come up with a good answer (although she did surmise a … [Read more...]

Head Lice – not just a nuisance for children!

Today, we treated two grandmothers, M, 92 and H, 95 (and three other members of their family).   M had a very very severe case with thousands of nits, multi-staged nymphs and adult lice.  We estimate she’d been inhabited by a fertilized female at least six to eight weeks before (although the place of contraction remains a mystery to the family.)   It appears M passed the case to her daughter, her … [Read more...]

Client Testimonial for Elimilice

Not too long ago, I posted a blog entry about Gabbie, a beautiful first grader  whom we had treated for head lice.  I wanted to try and dispel a lot of the age-old wives' tales about head lice as well as the notion that those of African descent DO NOT get head lice. Gabbie's mother, Allison, was so very happy with the service as reflected in this … [Read more...]

Magic Cure for Head Lice?

This morning, I took my 8 year old to the pediatrician as she was complaining of a headache, earache, sore throat and stomach ache.  She had an ear infection that required antibiotics.  I had a philosophical conversation with our pediatrician about prescribing such because we’d been in on Tuesday for the same complaints and at that time, she tested negative for strep and did not have an ear … [Read more...]
