I Keep Catching Lice. Do I Have An Underlying Issue?

Getting rid of lice can prove to be a struggle at times. No matter how many home treatment methods the lice can still be prominent a few days later. Checking for lice consistently can help prevent the lice from coming back in large quantities. There are several at-home treatments that one could try, but they are never fully guaranteed or effective. Going to a professional lice clinic near you is easily the best option. The professionals will make sure that the pesky lice do not come back. 

Why Your Methods May Not Work

Lice do not discriminate when it comes to hair, they will go after a clean head or a dirty one. People do not have some kind of underlying issue when it comes to lice. There are two assumptions as to why your methods of getting rid of lice may not be working. One may be due to you not being thorough enough around the whole head. Another one may be that you aren’t actually killing the eggs, also known as nits. Usually, both of these issues kind of combine into one because one might cause the other. If you really want to make sure these lice never come back you should go to a lice clinic. Then after a week, check yourself for lice to make sure they are all gone. 

Tips To Prevent Lice

Lice are only spread from head-to-head contact. Knowing this information should significantly help you avoid getting lice. Lice can still be active around the summertime due to the increase in activity amongst people. Things like camp, playing, and sleepovers where kids participate in head-to-head contact is something to keep an eye out for. Lastly, by always taking precautions to avoid lice such as regular lice checks and avoiding head-to-head contact, you are taking great preventative action.
