Drug-resistant head lice are showing up in Indiana. Dermatologists believe that up to 60-percent of head lice nationally may be what the media have labeled "super lice", or resistant to typical drug treatments.
McCordsvillepediatrcian Dr. Brian Aguilar says head lice seem to have genetically evolved over time to resist treatments, developing stronger exoskeletons and immune systems.
