How To Get Rid Of Super Lice
While super lice are not considered a serious health threat to humans, roughly 10 percent of all American school-aged children miss school due to lice infestations. So where are parents to turn when their child comes home with head lice?
Alternative treatments for super head lice are being developed on several fronts. There is some skepticism over the wisdom of investing in new pesticide-based treatments. After all, if head lice have developed immunity to one pesticide weapon, how long will it take before they can fight off the next one?
Invention of AirAlle
This is where the researchers at the University of Utah come in. They have taken an entirely different approach to head-lice treatment. Their approach is based on a medical device, not a pesticide, and was born out of an effort to keep lice alive, not to kill them.
The team was studying animal lice and found that the insects fared poorly in the arid desert environment. The lice commonly died of dehydration. When one of the researcher’s children came home with a case of head lice, and OTC products failed to remove them, he came up with the idea of attacking them by re-creating the circumstances killing animal lice in the lab.
Fast-forward a decade or two when the team unveiled the AirAllé medical device, a first-of-its-kind medical device used for killing lice. The device uses nothing more than hot air to dehydrate head lice on the spot, killing live lice and 99.2 percent of lice eggs, according to the clinical trial. The AirAllé device has been through rigorous trials and has been cleared by the FDA as a safe and effective means of treating head lice.
