Your child with head lice? No way!!!

Your child with head lice? No way!!!

by: Cassia Portugal, MD CEO

Head lice are parasitic insects that thrive in sucking blood from a persons’ scalp. They measure approximately 1/10th of an inch, and may come in very light colors (almost translucent), pale yellow, or black. Their eggs (also called nits) are even smaller and can frequently be found attached to the hair shaft near the scalp. Head lice do not have wings, so they cannot fly from one person to another. Instead, they crawl very fast and migrate from one place to another based on the proximity of their next target location.

Flu season again? Oh yes! Why do we need to immunize our children against Flu?

By, Dr. Anca Tomsa, M.D. FAAP

As winter season arrived in Sunny Florida, despite the overall nice and warm weather, almost every day at least one of my patients will come to clinic sick with high fever and chills, runny nose, body aches, headaches, vomiting and will test positive for Flu. We are in full Flu season and every day the Flu vaccine is offered to all of our patients who were not immunized yet against Flu.
