At first glance, it may seem less expensive to purchase an at-home over the counter lice medication or shampoo for your child, rather than spending money on professional treatments from lice treatment services. However, many parents are surprised when they realize that OTC bottles of lice treatments are not cheap ($25-45 for one treatment) and often come with hidden expenses of their own. Below, we’ll examine two factors you may not have considered about at-home lice treatment costs.
The “Re-purchase Factor”
Many parents choose to use at home OTC lice treatments for their child. They are often under the impression that they are more convenient and less expensive to use when compared to professional lice treatment cost. However, at-home lice treatments, including homeopathic solutions, are not nearly as effective as professional services. They require sometimes 3 and 4 four treatments, many times without success, which means re-purchasing the product, and more money spent and time lost.
Lost Wages from Missing Work
Another expense that parents seldom factor into lice treatment cost is the potential lost income from missing work. Parents will miss more work when treating their child at-home because regardless of which method, non-professional treatment is a multiple day process. This is especially problematic for parents without sick leave. Additionally, if a parent can attend work, they may have to factor added child-care expenses into the lice treatment cost as well.
