Recently, bouts of what are known as “super lice” have been spotted in school districts throughout Texas. This new strain of lice is entirely immune to over-the-counter products, making them difficult to treat promptly. Thankfully, you have professional treatment options available.
What Are Super Lice?
To put it simply, super lice are a genetically mutated strain of head lice that are resistant to most active ingredients in traditional lice treatment solutions. These pests do not appear any different from regular lice, and can only be identified by their resistance to treatment.
How to Check for Lice:
If you suspect your child has lice, there are a couple of simple steps to confirm the diagnosis. Gather up some tools to determine if lice is a problem, including:
- Nit Comb
- Magnifying glass
- Paper Towel
- Disposable gloves
- Check your hairbrush for any bugs or nits
These devices are merely for a rudimentary check. Your best bet is to visit a professional lice treatment provider for the best results.
What to look for:
Adult head lice; brown in color and similar in size to a sesame seed
Nits (eggs); yellow, brown or tan in color
Possible incessant scratching
Super Lice Treatment:
When it comes to treatment for super lice, your only true option is to comb-out every bug and nit using products without pesticides. While occasionally helpful against your average critter, over-the-counter pesticides do not affect super lice in the same manner and are harmful to you. In fact, the chemicals rarely help against even your typical head lice infestation.
