In recent years, there is a new subject on the minds of many parents and children and that is the removal of head lice. Yes, head lice are a significant phenomenon in the U.S. and the second largest cause of absenteeism among elementary school children, after the common cold.

This video goes over treatment options, both chemical and more natural routes, as well as more information in regards to eradicating lice from both your child and your house.
