Head Lice Treatment

Head lice is a very common condition, especially among children ages 3-10. Outbreaks of head lice occur often in schools and group settings worldwide. Just talking about lice and nits is enough to make you feel all itchy and produce that ‘icky’ feeling, but recurring infestation with head lice is extremely common, particularly during the early school years. Lice and nits are an almost inevitable part of growing up and can infest even the cleanest of children. Infestation has nothing to do with a family's income, social status, or level of personal hygiene!

What are head lice and what can we do?

Head lice are parasitic insects that live in the hair and scalp of humans. The scientific name for head louse is Pediculus humanus capitis. Another name for infestation with head lice is pediculosis. They are parasites that survive by sucking small amounts of blood from the head. They cannot survive more than 24 hours off the scalp.

Head lice develop in three forms: nits, nymphs, and adults. Nits are head lice eggs. They are hard to see and are often mistaken for dandruff or drops of hairspray buildup. Nits are found firmly attached to the hair shaft. They are oval and usually yellow to white. They take about 1 week to hatch. Nits hatch into nymphs about 7 days after hatching. Nymphs are adult head lice that mature into adults about 7 days after hatching. To live, nymphs must feed on blood.

An adult louse is about the size of a sesame seed, has six legs, and is tan to greyish- white. In persons with dark hair, adult lice will look darker. Adult lice can live up to 30 days on a person's head. To live, adult lice need to feed on blood.

The most common symptom is a persistent itching of the scalp particularly around the ears, back of the neck and crown.
