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.

 

We Are Open

We are following strict Coronavirus precautions and safety guidelines. We are taking temperatures of all visitors, and only allowing one family in the clinic at a time. We will require masks to be worn while inside the clinic, while also performing enhanced disinfection routines between each appointment. Our attention to preventing cross-contamination has always been top of mind at Pediatric Hair Solutions, which is why we find it imperative to do a pre-treatment prior to using heated air when treating lice. Times are changing, but our commitment to professional health care is not.
