Per the CDC, between 6-12 million children and adults get head lice each year in the US alone, as well as up to twice that many unreported cases. Anyone who comes in head-to-head contact with someone who already has head lice is at the greatest risk. With close contact at schools, camps, and day cares, you can see why lice spreads so easily. Girls between the ages of 3-15 have the greatest chance of getting lice (eek!), then they can easily spread throughout their family.
One adult female can lay 10 eggs (nits) a day (shudder!!) and she lives for 30 days. They feed on your scalp blood. Many people are allergic to the bites, thus causing the itching.
Over-the-counter products available today like Rid, Nix and head lice shampoos for purchase in pharmacies have become somewhat ineffective, lice have adapted and have become resistant to the treatment. The plastic combs provided in the OTC kits are also not always effective at combing out all nits and bugs.
Many over the counter products are questionably dangerous since they contain neurotoxins and worse. Compare the ingredients of the top products to a can of Raid and killing agents in lawn chemicals to lice killing products. Is that what we want on our children's heads? That is some crazy stuff to think about.
Some home remedies are also ineffective. Smothering lice with mayonnaise and olive oil for example may not always work. Those ingredients can melt, breakdown and liquefy due to your core body temperature which then allows the lice to breathe, not killing them. Those bad boys can be so hard to kill!
As parents we do our best to protect our kids, so reliable and good information is key.
