Introduction:

Head lice are a common and often stressful problem, especially in school-aged children. Onpoint Urgent Care Houston offers expert and compassionate treatment for lice infestations, providing effective solutions to eliminate lice and prevent their spread.

Service Description:

Our team at Onpoint Urgent Care Houston understands the challenges and discomfort associated with lice infestations. We specialize in providing prompt, effective, and discreet treatment for lice, ensuring both eradication of the pests and peace of mind for our patients and their families.

Symptoms and Causes:

Head lice infestations are characterized by:

  • Itching: Caused by the reaction to lice bites.
  • Visible Lice or Nits: Lice are tiny, wingless insects, while nits are their eggs, seen attached to hair shafts.
  • Redness and Sores: From scratching.

Lice spread primarily through direct head-to-head contact, making children in school or daycare settings particularly vulnerable. Sharing combs, hats, and other hair accessories can also facilitate the spread.

Comprehensive Treatment Approach:

  • Detailed Examination: Conducting a thorough scalp examination to confirm the presence of lice and nits.
  • Medicated Shampoos and Lotions: Utilizing effective, prescription-strength lice treatments to eliminate both adult lice and nits.
  • Comb-Out Process: Guiding and assisting in the meticulous removal of nits using special combs.
  • Educational Support: Providing detailed instructions and education on home care, including cleaning of personal items and preventing reinfestation.
  • Family Screening and Advice: Recommending screenings for family members and close contacts, along with advice on preventive measures.
  • Follow-Up Care: Offering follow-up appointments to ensure the complete eradication of the infestation.

When to Seek Treatment:

Prompt treatment is recommended if:

  • There is evidence of active lice infestation.
  • Over-the-counter lice treatments have been ineffective.
  • The person infested is experiencing excessive discomfort or secondary skin infection from scratching.

Importance of Professional Care:

Professional care is crucial in effectively treating lice infestations. It ensures accurate identification, appropriate treatment, and advice on preventing future infestations. Professional intervention is especially important in cases of persistent or recurrent infestations.
