Iowa Department of Public Health Medical Director and State Epidemiologist Dr. Patricia Quinlisk recently spoke with Des Moines FM host Chance Dorland about Iowa’s “super lice” and how they’ve developed a resistance to many over the counter medications. While this sounds a bit alarming. Dr. Quinlisk says some medications you can buy at the pharmacy may still be effective, and even if not, stronger prescription medicines are still available, meaning treating lice is not as difficult as you might think.
