Head lice: a giant pain in the backsides of parents taking their children into public and an annoyingly itchy irritating parasite that must be eliminated. But the new super lice could present a problem with treatments and has become much more daunting over the past years. Yet, there’s a solution…
According to Today, the effectiveness of over the counter preparations had declined to 25 percent, a level described as being “no better than placebo.” Even with “nit combing,” the process of removing some of the younger and recently hatched lice from the hair follicle, according to a review article published in Pediatric Dermatology late last year found that the tedious process is as effective as a placebo. Worse, even higher doses of the over the counter product aren’t any more effective, researchers said.
But a prescription doesn’t necessarily equate to efficacy, and there is something that can help. Doctors are now saying that the treatments are not effective because they aren’t done properly and with dedication. They are done with lazy impatience making prescription medications the only avenue for frustrated parents.
