Lice Hunter, MD:  An Alternative Solution To A Pesky Problem

Friday, October 21, 2016

Sugarland, TX, 9/20/2016- Dr. Jessica Nelson has been an emergency physician for more than five years and has seen both medical and trauma emergencies, as well as a number of skin and insect related complaints.  Throughout her career as an ER doctor she evaluated numerous patients for head lice.  Dr. Nelson provided families with a prescription for the treatment of head lice, only to discover that upon follow-up, the family’s infestation had not been eradicated.  Frustrated in her inability to help, Jessica began to seek out more viable alternatives.


Jessica’s research led her to the growing industry of Lice Removal and ultimately The Shepherd Institute. Now trained and certified she is able to provide her families with an alternative solution that really works. Opened since July 2016, her company Lice Hunter, MD provides an effective, nontoxic solution to this pesky problem.


Head lice have been around since the beginning of mankind and represent the most prevalent, human parasite infestation in the world. Lice are a major problem in both developed and developing countries.  Data on head lice reveals the following:

  • Estimated 6-12 million infestations occur each year
  • 42 of 50 states within the United States show 100% resistant to over the counter treatments
  • Children ages 3-11 are the most common age group to become infested with head lice
  • Estimated 1 in 100 elementary school children will become infested with head lice
  • 25% prevalence of head lice in elementary schools
  • Head lice infest ALL socioeconomic groups
  • There is no relation between head lice and the level of personal and/or environmental cleanliness
  • Reports have estimated the annual cost of head lice infestations to be upward of $1 billion dollars when you factor in direct and indirect cost 

During her practice of emergency medicine, Dr. Nelson found that a lot of the parent’s frustration stemmed from persistent and/or frequent re-infestations.  Researchers have discovered that persistent infestations are likely secondary to the following:

  • Drug resistance of over the counter and prescription medications (aka “super lice”)
  • Products lack of ovicidal effect
  • Failure to follow treatment protocol
  • Difficulty identifying all lice and nits for proper removal
  • Rapid re-infestations by unknown source

So, how did she fund this new found passion?   Jessica and her family were selected to compete on the Family Feud!  In short, they WON, and made the collective decision to invest their winnings into a much needed lice removal company in her community.  


Lice Hunter, MD is located in Sugar Land, Texas and is open Monday through Saturday from 9am to 6pm.  For more information on the treatment and education of head lice, or to book an appointment, call (281) 201-2470 or visit them online at www.LiceHunterMD.com.
