Lice Clinics of America (LCA) reported last week that they saw a  significant increase in head lice activity through their network of clinics in the US in April and May during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Joining me on today’s show is Krista Lauer, MD, National Medical Director of Lice Clinics of America. Dr. Lauer discussed some of the basics about head lice, the increase in lice activity during this time frame and advice for parents concerning prevention and treatment.
