Lice Specialists FAQ in Brentwood, CA

Can lice dig into your skull?

Can lice live on hair clippers?

Is rubbing alcohol good for lice?

It’s often used in the medical field to sterilize surgical tools, and clean skin before injections or blood draws.

Can lice infest a mattress?

The short answer is, they can’t. Lice really cannot live apart from a food source for more than 24 to 48 hours and, unlike fleas and bedbugs, they don’t like to live separately from their host, returning only to feast. Lice require close proximity to their host.

Why don’t adults get lice?

Adults are not immune to head lice. In fact, if you have any close contact with children or even parents of children you can be at risk of catching them if they have them. Lice transfer primarily through head to head contact, so you would have to get close to the other person.

Are lice good for anything?

What repels lice naturally?

Coconut, tea tree oil, lavender, eucalyptus, rosemary, lemon grass, and peppermint are scents popularly believed to repel lice. Using any coconut scented shampoo and conditioner is an easy way to increase your defense. At 1% concentration, tea tree oil killed 100% of head lice after 30 minutes.

Should I stay home if I have lice?

Head Lice Information for Schools. Students diagnosed with live head lice do not need to be sent home early from school; they can go home at the end of the day, be treated, and return to class after appropriate treatment has begun.

Will my lice ever go away?

You Have to Treat Them Head lice will not go away on their own. If you think your child has an infestation, there are several steps you should take right away. Call your doctor to confirm the diagnosis. Notify your child’s day care or school so other students can be checked.

Why do I keep finding lice eggs but no lice?

Nits are often confused with other things found in the hair such as dandruff, hair spray droplets, and dirt particles. If no live nymphs or adult lice are seen, and the only nits found are more than ΒΌ-inch from the scalp, the infestation is probably old and no longer active and does not need to be treated.

What soap kills lice?

If you’ve tried over the counter lice treatments recently and feel it’s not effective, try alternative methods: Apply mineral or olive oil to hair, leave on 30 minutes, wash out with Dawn dish soap. Apply white vinegar, leave on 30 minutes, rinse out.

What does a dermatologist do for lice?

Your dermatologist may prescribe a medicated shampoo to kill head lice. This product may come with a special comb to run through the hair for removing nits.
