Back to school can mean the unpleasant possibility of coming in contact with head lice. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, lice infestation affects more than 12 million U.S. children each year, and is the second most frequent health issue for kids ages 3 to 11. Adding the Super Lice threat into the mix, it makes the battle that more worrisome.
