INGLESIDE, TEXAS, Aug. 20, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Beware the Super Lice! That's the headline on news stories from many of the largest media organizations today.
Dr. Kyong Yoon, who has researched pesticide resistance in head lice since the 1990s released an update showing that head lice in 83 percent of the states he sampled—including Texas—now have gene mutations making them resistant to pesticides in the most popular lice shampoos.
Parents around the country are no doubt slapping their heads and saying, "So that's why I couldn't get rid of my kid's lice infestation!"
Lucky for them, there is Lice Clinics of America, a professional lice service that kills head lice with heated air using AirAllé, a patented, FDA-cleared medical device.
"There seems to be a constant lice outbreak in this area," said Cindi Lamas, owner of Monkey Business Lice Removal, a Lice Clinics of America preferred provider in Ingleside, Texas. "And they are becoming resistant to the chemical treatments, so they're harder than ever to get rid of. I'm thrilled to offer this service in the Corpus Christi area so that people don't have to drive so far to get an effective treatment."
Monkey Business Lice Removal is open by appointment only, with evening and Saturday bookings available at its clinic at 2817 Main St. in Ingleside. AirAllé treatments take about an hour and come with a 30-day guarantee. The clinic offers several other treatment options as well as lice screenings. Learn more at mblicemoval.com.
