Super lice are now infesting scalps in 25 states including Texas!

Tell your kids not to share hats and hairbrushes because this strain can't be treated like normal lice.

"The lice themselves have sort of built up a resistance to conventional over-the-counter treatments that most patients use for the treatment," says pediatrician  Dr. Daniel McCrimons.

Lice Clinics of America developed AirAllé, a new FDA-approved treatment using heated air to dehydrate the lice and eggs.

It may be effective - but it's not cheap. The treatment can cost you close to $200.
