TREATMENT FOR HEAD LICE INFESTATION
The treatment for Hematophage Infestation should involve a complete destruction of the head lice and the eggs that are there buried in the scalp of a person. As there are no single method that would assure such results in a single treatment cycle it is best to go for an effective multi stage treatment program which will involve various degrees of success. These methods may involve chemical treatments or naturally occurring remedies that are friendlier to the hair follicles in the long run.
Physical removal will involve the use of knit combs that can sieve out lice large enough to get caught in the comb when run through the hair. One can also use disinfectants and high heat laundering to get rid of the eggs and head lice that might have gotten into clothes. As the human body is the area from which the infestation starts, utmost care should be given to personal hygiene. Over time many of the head lice have become resistant to usual chemical treatments and can withstand repeated treatments. Increasing the toxicity of the treatments or the harshness of the chemicals can lead to hair loss and skin irritation.
Constant treatment for lice is not effective as we eggs in the hair and skin can survive chemicals that might kill the live mice. So, periodic checks for live lice and corresponding treatment are the best way to keep the problem under control.
