Head Lice :: An effective treatment for head lice: a lot of hot air

Head lice are a major irritant to children and their parents around the world. The number of head lice cases is increasing because lice are developing a resistance to current treatments such as chemical shampoos, specialized louse combs and various home remedies.

New study findings demonstrate that one 30-minute application of hot air can eradicate head lice infestations. In the study, “An Effective Nonchemical Treatment for Head Lice: A Lot of Hot Air,” researchers tested six different treatment methods on 169 lice-infested children. All six methods delivered hot air to the scalp and resulted in killing lice eggs, but the most successful was a custom-built machine called the LouseBuster. The result was a nearly 100 percent mortality of eggs and 80 percent mortality of hatched lice. Virtually all individuals were head lice-free when examined one week after being treated with the device, and no adverse side effects were reported.
