New York's Capital Region, Including Albany, Schenectady, and Troy, Sees Surge in Incidence of Head Lice

LiceDoctors Lice Treatment and Nit Removal, a leading lice removal company in upstate New York, reports that it is seeing a significant rise in the number of head lice cases as spring comes to the region. The company has received a large volume of calls from families in Albany and surrounding areas.

Albany, NY, May 13, 2015 –(– As the especially harsh winter of 2015 becomes a distant memory for families in the Capital district of Albany, Schenectady, and Troy, New York, spring has sprung and along with it comes an increase in the number of head lice cases being reported. According to LiceDoctors Lice Treatment and Nit Removal Service, it is not unusual for the incidence of lice to rise and present itself as the weather warms up and encourages young children to engage in outdoor play together. Karen Sokoloff, owner of LiceDoctors, explains that as children tend to spend more time together in informal play there is closer head-to head contact, which translates to more lice transmissions.

According to Sokoloff, LiceDoctors has seen a real jump in the number of calls from this region. “LiceDoctors is a familiar presence in upstate New York. We make house calls all over the region and parents love the convenience of us coming to them, at whatever time they need us. The company has been treating families for many years and has tackled and cured infestations in over 140,000 children and their families. LiceDoctors uses a protocol based our on-staff medical doctor. We are the only lice company anywhere in New York with an in-house medical doctor. The protocol we use is all-natural; it is a step-by-step plan and is executed through the expertise of our intensively trained technicians. The plan always works and we offer a full guarantee.”

According to Linda M., the mother of three elementary school children in Albany, “We were stuck in most of the winter and now my kids are running all over the place going on play dates. We know of several kids who have lice and they are passing them around to other kids. I didn’t want to sequester my kids; they have pent up demand for socializing. As a result, my daughter came home with lice. I tried to treat it on my own but quickly realized that was not the answer. The pediatrician recommended LiceDoctors and that is the route we took.”
