Long-considered the Atlanta-area's head lice expert, we've been contacted by three separate news agencies over the past couple of days - to provide comment on the myriad of recent stories relating to "SELFIES CAUSING HEAD LICE OUTBREAK."   It seems that there's some hysteria (but isn't there always when it comes to head lice?) surrounding this newest "worry."

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...]
