Sometimes there are things in life that if you ignore them they eventually go away. With head lice, this is not the case. You cannot ignore head lice and wishfully hope they will just disappear from your child’s head or maybe they will eventually die off. They won’t. As long as head lice have a host to survive on, the problem will get worse as time goes on. This is why it’s best to nip head lice in the butt right away by taking your child to Fresh Heads Lice Removal for our professional lice treatment.
Head Lice Left Untreated
Several consequences will occur if you decide the problem will be fixed on its own. First, as the infestation continues the symptoms will worsen. Your child will most likely be scratching at their head nonstop, causing more sores and overall pain, to the point where it will be difficult for your child to go to sleep. Remember, adult head louse can survive on one’s scalp for up to 30 days and within that time period, female louse have the ability to lay approximately six eggs a day. As each day passes more eggs will be laid and hatched.
Another consequence is if you let head lice go untreated you will be dealing with an even bigger problem. There could be several hundred or even thousands of lice residing on one’s head which not only increases the risk of potential infection but makes treatment all the more difficult. When you wait until the last minute to handle the problem it will require multiple treatments to get rid of head lice. Especially since all head lice must be killed because if even one nit or louse is left behind the problem begins all over again.
Lastly, not treating your child’s head lice means you’re increasing your risk and others in your household of getting head lice. Each day your child has head lice means you’re more likely to somehow come in direct head-to-head contact, thus allowing a chance for the lice to transfer to your head.
