That's right, you read that title correctly. Super lice are causing trouble to many families all across the USA. These lice are called super lice because they seem to be bigger, stronger, and meaner than ordinary lice. Super lice are even resistant to most common lice treatments. The fact that these lice can't be killed from ordinary shampoos and other common treatments is posing an issue for some families. Many families have had to take their children to a doctor or clinic to get a better treatment. They are much more vicious than normal lice are, and are harder to kill. A school in Pittsburgh has recently dealt with an outbreak of these pests and it seems that the issue is growing rather than improving.
It is recommended that if you or someone you know may have these super lice that you seek treatment right away before they become a bigger issue. Bagging all items that may have come in contact with the lice for at least 15-30 days and seeking a doctor's treatment are recommended. It takes a lot to kill these super lice, and families with children are told to be prepared and cautious. Never let your children share hats or clothes and always be sure to check their hair as you brush it. Teach your kids about the dangers of lice and how they can say safe during this outbreak.
