Lice are tiny insects living in the human hair and feeding on blood from the scalp. Extremely annoying, not only are they contagious, but also incredibly difficult to get rid of. They spread through personal contact or through shared hats, brushes or combs.
They are known to cause itching, a feeling of something moving on the head, and sometimes even sores on the scalp. Although itching might indicate a lice infestation, most people are asymptomatic to the presence of lice. Only the presence of a live louse or the presence of nits are reliable signs of lice infestation.
However, although difficult to live with and frustrating to get rid of, they are not dangerous. While they often cause an irritated scalp, lice do not spread diseases. They have to be taken care of quickly, though, as they multiply extremely quickly.
Typically, kids are the group most prone to lice, which is a common problem with both preschool and schoolchildren. However, this does not mean that adults cannot get them. If a child gets them, it is advisable for the whole family to be treated. It is worth noting that girls get lice more often that boys and women contract more lice compared to men.
Many lice treatment shampoos on the market today, most of which are both overpriced and ineffective. This means that you could end up investing a lot of money, time and effort and still have insects left behind, which will then multiply almost immediately.
