‘Super Lice’ Have Spread to Washington State
Now there are reports of a new strain of "super lice" that have spread across half the country and are now in Washington State. The new strain is much more resistant to treatments used in the past like shampoos because they have developed an immunity to pediculocides. How they spread is exactly the same, they are just a lot more difficult to get ride of once you have them.
There is a new hot air treatment that is being used that works really well according to reports. They use hot air to dehydrate the eggs and the bugs and it takes about 60-90 minutes to complete the treatment. The company that offers it is called "Air Alle" and the closest treatment center is located in Seattle.
