Ocean County Head Lice Removal Testimonials

"I sent an email through your website and was relieved when at 11pm Linda called me. This was great service. Your staff are professional, your center reminded me of an actual salon. You have created a calm space. I will recommend you to anyone that has lice. Don't be offended- I hope to never see you again.

Dorothy P. Ocean Township, N.J.

I lived through the nightmare of lice when my daughter was in first grade. When she got lice again as an eighth grader, I knew to not mess around for weeks trying to get rid of them on my own. One visit to your office and problem solved. Thank you Lice Be Gone!!

Jessica A., Point Pleasant, NJ

Because I'm a nurse I thought I knew what head lice looked like.  I underestimated what it takes to do it right! I came to your center knowing that my daughter had lice but had no idea that me, my husband and son also had it.

Ocean County School District Head Lice Policies

Each school district has their own head lice policy. Over the last few years the trend has been to abandon the no nit policy and to allow students to attend with either nits or even live lice.  It is important to know the stated policy of the school your child attends. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) states "head lice can be a nuisance but they have not been shown to spread disease." While it is true that they don't spread disease, head lice are very contagious and allowing children to attend school with head lice will allow it to spread. 

Definition of the Policies

  • “No Nit” Policy - A “no nit” policy means that children are not allowed in school with any nits (lice eggs) in the hair. In reality, there is some variation: some school nurses will actually pick out a few nits if that is all that they see and allow the child to stay in school. Other nurses will see one nit and send the child home. The latter is the exception rather than the rule.
  • “No Live Lice” Policy - A “no live lice” policy means that children with nits may stay in school, however, students with live bugs will be sent home. Again, there is room for interpretation of this rule. In some schools, the child with live bugs will be allowed to remain in school until the end of the school day and then will be sent home to be treated and not allowed back to school until all live lice have been killed. In other cases, children with live bugs will be sent home immediately for treatment. A third interpretation of this policy is that children with live bugs and nits within a quarter of an inch from the scalp will be sent home as these cases are deemed “active.” Children with nits farther from the scalp are allowed to remain in school.
  • “Live Lice and Nits” Allowed Policy - Then there is the third policy, which is the most lenient of all: children with live lice and nits are permitted to remain in school. While many schools educate parents and students about head lice, the schools with very liberal policies place a special emphasis on education to try to prevent and contain head lice.

The shift in policy from not allowing a student to attend with nits or lice to a more relaxed policy of allowing students to attend with nits or live lice is in part due to the American Pediatric Association (APA) and National Association of School Nurses (NASN). Both organizations believe that children shouldn't be excluded from attending school with nits or lice. The APA reports say many of the more common treatments for getting rid of head lice, including prescription medicines and over-the-counter creams and conditioners, may no longer be effective because lice have built up such a resistance to them.

According to NBC’s Oklahoma affiliate KFOR, lice samples from 84 people from various different countries found that 99.6% of head lice have some sort of gene mutation that made them immune to common lice removal chemicals like permethrin and pyrethrin. These strains of lice have already been found in at least 25 U.S. states and is one of the reason lice removal Bergen County NJ services have opened up to new kinds of treatment centers.”
