I hope you had a wonderful holiday season.  This year, in addition to all the eating, family time, EATING and gift giving/receiving, the memory made for several in my family related to head lice prevention and treatment.

Need to clean the home when head lice found?

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...]
