School starts later this month. Your kids can’t wait to get back to see friends they haven’t seen all summer, and you can’t wait to get them out of the house and back to a normal schedule.

Don’t get too excited, because you know what comes with this of course…head lice. Even reading that gives you phantom itching, doesn’t it?

It happens – despite what you do at home, other people have incredibly gross children and those gross children come into contact with yours, and there you have it.

Normally, you’d just buy the shampoo and a fancy comb and you’re done with it, right? Not so fast.

Drug-resistant lice (read: super, mutant lice) have been found in 25 states – including Connecticut…and those over-the-counter treatments won’t work.

So get excited. You know you’re getting them.
