How to Treat Head Lice

Head lice are pests that live on humans and feed off of blood, but are fortunately easy to treat. There are different kinds of lice, and most are animal specific, meaning lice that affects humans will most likely not harm the family pet, and vice-versa. Head lice are extremely common in young children and are usually found in the hair close to the base of the neck undetected for weeks or months.


The main symptom of head lice – and the one most find aggravating – is the constant itching. If left untreated, itching can result in scaling and oozing skin. Lice lay eggs within the scalp, and once hatched they become nits until they are adult lice. These pests can migrate to other areas of the body that have hair for them to attach to, though in most cases they are happy to stay on your head.


Luckily, there are treatments for the highly transmittable infestation. Many products are available over the counter, and schools will usually give a lice preparedness sheet at the beginning of each school year or during an outbreak that will list products parents can use on their children or themselves. If cases are severe enough, they may require medical attention.


One such product is LiceMD. This is a head lice shampoo that will safely and effectively get rid of lice, along with their eggs and nits. Made with a clear, odorless hypoallergenic formula that won’t irritate the skin, this easy-to-use lice treatment eliminates lice in three simple steps while conditioning the hair for easy comb-out.


Many people think that cases of head lice emerge due to poor hygiene, but this is in fact untrue. Lice actually prefer clean hair. Some of the common symptoms include frequent head itching (especially around the ears and back of the neck) and scalp or skin irritations, while others never even show symptoms. With LiceMD, you can get rid of lice with one highly-effective, skin-friendly treatment that is safe for kids, and is pesticide free.
