Is it Eczema? Is it Crabs? No, It’s Super Lice!
As if regular lice wasn't enough of a nuisance for some people, the there's said to be a new strain of "super lice" that has infested people in 25 states.
There is not much difference in the number of children infested with the new strain and those with the regular kind, but the newer strain is said to be a little more difficult to treat as mutations increase resistance to some medicines.
While generally embarrassing, lice are said to not really carry disease for the much part. They're just annoying and itchy. We all know how uncomfortable it can be to have an itch in a place where finding relief is difficult, such as one's back. Can you imagine having an itch that is hard to not only relieve but also to treat?
