Trust us – using Vaseline to remove head lice is a bad ide
Difficult Vaseline removal, potentially harmful chemicals and low success rates…there’s a better solution to Lice Removal in Louisville!
With a simple Google search, you’ll find literally a bazillion recommended lice removal techniques and solutions. They run the gamut from shampoos, chemical treatments, natural treatments, essential oils, special combs, and even smothering them with Vaseline (spoiler alert: not a great idea and a huge mess). In fact, it’s practically possible to completely remove Vaseline or other smothering agents. And most importantly, any successful lice treatment requires that both the lice and nits (eggs) are completely eliminated.
Even some of the most commonly-used lice treatments are time consuming; often requiring many days or weeks for successful resolution. A complete second round of treatment may even be required in some more difficult scenarios. And there’s no guarantee that the problem will be resolved in the end. While both adults and children suffer with lice infestation, most of the conversation around this topic centers on children. Infestation rates generally are higher in children because of increased and rapid rates of transmission in group or school settings. And of course, there’s lots of intermingling of kids’ belongings in the classroom, so a lice infestation can spread like wildfire!
According to WebMD.com, lice affect between six and 12 million school children each year. Compounding the problem, this parasite often shows resistance to a more common treatment method – Permethrin, an insecticide. This ingredient is contained in several popular over-the-counter lice treatments. The rate of resistance is more common in certain areas of the country. To make matters worse, sometimes the itchy symptoms of lice infestation do not appear until up to six weeks after the first few parasites arrive.
There also are many other treatment options available by prescription, which are chemically-based and include some risk of side effects (in some cases even nervous system damage). This leads to the topic around chemicals and parents’ concern with safety and potential allergic reactions. No parent wants to replace one worry (lice) with another (perhaps even more troublesome) worry!
There’s another proven solution to the hassle of acute or chronic lice infestation that does not involve chemicals, insecticides, or low success rates. Louisville parents deserve to know about it and how well it works.
