Sheila Fassler, RN and owner of Pediatric Hair Solutions wrote a guest blog for the popular mommy website Charlotte Smarty Pants. In the blog post “Lice 101: What Every Parent Needs to Know about Lice“, Sheila clears up the myths and confusing surrounding head lice.
Most parents don’t know that the most commonly used over the counter treatments are no longer effective at treating head lice. Lice have developed a resistance to the chemicals found in Rid, Nix and even prescription treatments.
Sheila also described how to determine if your child or family member has head lice and shared tips on preventing the spread of head lice.
