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...]

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...]

School’s Out but the Head Lice Are Not on Vacation

Busy busy busy. We've been seeing lots of children for head checks before they leave for camp, lots of children (and adults) for treatment who took more than their notebooks with them when they finished with school recently and lots of parents purchasing preventative products before they meet with family and friends for out-of-town vacations. We were also recently featured in these local … [Read more...]

Lice free for Mother’s Day?

We've been bombarded with head checks the last couple of days - in our North Druid Hills/North Decatur and Sandy Springs, Atlanta, head lice treatment facilities and in clients' homes.  More than eighty percent have been "negative" for head lice.

Teachers with head lice

Today, we performed school level head checks at a prestigious preschool in Buckhead.   Head lice was detected on a beloved pre-K teacher.  She has college and high-school aged children herself but had never experienced head lice to date. She works with children that are 4 and 5 years old.  She is on the floor with them, they hug her and are very close to her much of the day.  You can bet that … [Read more...]
