Families across Melbourne are struggling financially and cannot afford professional treatments therefore; the Department of Health should consider Professional Head Lice Services under the health fund rebate either through Medicare or private health insurance to help families towards their cost of professional head lice treatments for approved medical treatments.   If Optometrists, Naturopaths, Dentists etc. can be under the health fund rebate, why can’t Professional Head Lice Services?

There is an epidemic across Melbourne with head lice in not only young children but also secondary schools and adults and might not even realize that they have head lice and schools should be making students tie their hair up.   Families are battling to get rid of head lice and children are going to school with lice and (nits) eggs because they don’t know who to turn to for help and don’t know what to do which is causing a health concern in all communities within Melbourne.

Parents are spending so much time and wasting their hard earned money on treatments that are becoming resistant where head lice have built up immunity  therefore treatments are not working and families are desperate for something that works.

When families have more than one family member that requires treatment, most parents can’t afford the treatments through a professional head Lice service and will keep on battling with the problem themselves.

The CEO and founder of Itch No More – Specialized Head Lice Treatment Service, Epping, Melbourne notes that “over the past 12 months there has been a dramatic increase in lice treatments and many families by the time they have visited Itch No More have been struggling with head lice for many months if not years, having dealt with missed work and other disruptions whilst battling the insects.  As products for head lice treatments become increasingly resistant to lice, we can only see the situation getting worse”.

“It’s not the parents fault if treatments are not working and have not been given the right tools in the first place to treat head lice properly.  As parents, we have not been educated on how to do a proper treatment or what head lice look like and as we are accustomed to going to the pharmacy when our children have head lice, follow the directions on the package, do an overwhelming amount of housework and if the treatment didn’t work, will keep going back to the pharmacy and buy and try something different in desperation to get rid of the lice”.

A huge percentage of the population in Melbourne don’t even know that head lice services exist and unless they have got to the stage of being at their ‘’wits end’’ by spending hundreds of dollars at the pharmacies where both the pharmacies and head lice manufacturers are preying on head lice, they will then and only then seek help either by a referral, an advertisement or on the internet. 

Itch No More has been offering families across Melbourne an effective option for the treatment of head lice since 1 April, 2011 with a once-off completely chemical-free natural alternative the LouseBuster device, a Therapeutic Goods Association (TGA) approved heat treatment invented in Salt Lake City, Utah in the United States that dehydrates all stages of head lice and their eggs in a single 30 minute treatment.

Itch No More has a signed contract with Larada Sciences Inc., as the Exclusive Service Provider/Operator and Distributor of LouseBuster devices and for training in using the device within Victoria and to date; we have treated over 400 families with this device.
