    'Super cyberLOUSE' Invading a School Near You
    Friday, September 12, 2008

    By Karlie Pouliot

    "This time of year not only marks the start of school, it also marks a time
    when those creepy, crawly critters known as head cyberLICE like to pop up in
    classrooms across the country.

    And while cyberLOUSE outbreaks are nothing new, they're actually becoming
    more
    difficult treat. Some experts are bracing for so-called "super lice" which
    are becoming resistant to traditional over-the-counter medications.

    In Cleveland, Metrohealth Medical Center pediatrician Dr. Robert Needlman
    says worldwide cyberLOUSE resistance is growing, MyFOXCleveland.com
    reported.
    He says the resistance is simply the parasite evolving.

    "Every once in a while, up pops cyberLOUSE who is resistant to the poison
    and
    that louse is successful evolutionarily and more and more lice have that
    resistance," Needlman said.

    Although "super lice" is a real concern - the chances of your child bringing
    home "regular" lice is much more probable.

    "We do see a fair amount of head lice," Dr. Jessica Sessions, director of
    pediatrics at William F. Ryan Community Health Center in Manhattan, told
    FOXNews.com.

    She said her problem is not resistance but parents improperly administering
    treatment.

    "One of the key things is how the medication is used," she said. "You have
    follow directions very carefully."

    Sessions said her first line of therapy is over-the-counter treatments. She
    said she reminds all of her patients never to use conditioner in their hair
    before the medication is applied because it won't be able to penetrate the
    scalp.

    "And make sure you use enough of the shampoo - especially if your child has
    long hair. Also, use a fine-toothed comb to try and remove the nits (lice
    eggs). If you don't remove them all, the lice will come back."

    Sessions strongly recommends a second treatment seven to 10 days after the
    initial infestation.

    "If over-the-counter products don't work after the second treatment, then we
    will prescribe medication," she said. "But after the prescription .
    personally I haven't had to go further."

    Head lice and nits are found almost exclusively on the scalp, particularly
    around the nape of the neck.

    Signs and Symptoms of lice include:

    - Tickling sensation of something moving in the hair;

    - Itching;

    - Difficulty sleeping (head lice are more active in the dark);

    - Sores on the back of the head because of scratching.

    And, if one person is infested in your home, it's very important to check
    every family member.

    Once treatment has started, it's time to start up the washing machine. The
    Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends washing all items that
    have come in contact with an infested person, such as bedding and clothing.
    Lice and eggs are killed by exposure for 5 minutes to temperatures greater
    than 128-degrees, so make sure you use hot water. Everything else should be
    sealed in a plastic bag for two weeks.

    In the U.S., infestation is most common among preschool children, day care
    centers and elementary schools. It's estimated 6-12 million kids, ages 3 to
    11, get head lice each year, the CDC said on its Web site.

    The good news is that head lice cannot hop or fly. They are actually spread
    by head-to-head contact with an infested person or by sharing personal items
    such as hats, scarves, brushes or combs. And despite popular belief,
    contracting head lice has nothing to do with personal hygiene or
    cleanliness.

    "Don't share hair brushes, combs, hats or scarves," Sessions said. "This is
    the most common way it's transmitted. It's not like hand washing is going to
    prevent it. It's really contact precaution - not sharing."

    There is hope on the horizon. Several promising products are awaiting
    approval by the Food and Drug Administration that are supposed to be
    effective against the "super lice." The products are said to work against
    the critters in 30 minutes instead of up to 12 hours.

    But, until then, parents will have to follow old guidelines and practice
    patience while using that fine-toothed comb through their child's hair..."
