What ARE Super Lice? There seems to be a lot of confusion around these tiny pests and exactly what makes them “super”. Are they bigger than regular lice? Are super lice a totally different type of lice than normal lice? What exactly sets them apart from their normal lice counterparts seems to be a question on every concerned individuals mind, but no worries Lice Clinics of America is here to break things down and help you tackle super lice.

Over the years as head lice was treated with over-the-counter toxic prescriptions and poisonous pesticides, certain lice began building a resistance to common lice pesticides and are no longer affected by them, much like antibiotic resistant bacteria. Or cockroaches that find a way to survive just about anything. The overexposure over time of pesticidal head lice treatments led to a strain of lice that could resist the effects of the treatments. Super lice are the exact same size as regular lice and are indistinguishable from their counterparts other than the fact they will be the ones left alive after a poison chemical treatment.

Super lice carry the same symptoms and spread the same way as normal head lice. To prevent an infestation of lice you should avoid: head to head contact, sharing clothing or hats, sharing hairbrushes or pillows, and furniture that an infected person sat on. Symptoms can include a tickling or moving sensation on your head and neck, itching your head, neck, or ears, red bumps on your head, neck or shoulders, and seeing the actual lice on your head or clothing.
