We proudly serve Houston and the surrounding areas, including children and adults in Friendswood.

Information About Lice

What Are Lice?

Head lice are small insects that thrive on blood. Adult head lice are about the size of a sesame seed and can be spotted by the naked eye, though they’re quick to hide from light sources. Lice eggs, or nits, are small oval shapes that will commonly be found in the hair follicles. While lice most commonly attach themselves to the scalp and hair follicles, they can also be found on the neck and areas around the hairline. Head lice rarely cause severe medical problems, though they can lead to interrupted sleep and scalp infections caused by scratching.

What Causes Head Lice?

As you may already know, head lice are highly contagious. Although lice are wingless and cannot jump, they are easily transferred from person to person. Sharing combs, hats, and coming into contact with infested furniture and fabric are the most common ways that children and adults become infected with head lice.

Risk Factors

According to the CDC, preschool- and elementary-age children and their caretakers have the highest risk of developing head lice infestations. While most adults work in offices or buildings with large numbers of people, children are much more likely to come into contact with one another when playing outside or participating in gym class.

How Can I Prevent Head Lice?

There are certain practices, like never sharing hats or combs, that can prevent head lice infestations, but shampoos and conditioners are the best way to remain lice-free. At Lice Treatment Solutions, we make lice prevention in Friendswood as easy and affordable as possible. We sell a number of lice prevention products, including shampoos and conditioners, that can help you or your child stay lice-free in the coming weeks and months.
