About Head Lice

What steps should be taken after treatment?

All items, such as bedding, clothes, hats, and plush toys, must be washed. Furniture, mattresses, rugs and other items require a thorough vacuuming. Soak items like brushes and combs in ammonia for at least 5 minutes. Other items can be placed into an airtight bag for a minimum of two weeks to completely smother the remaining parasites.

What do head lice look like?

Head lice are similar in size and shape to a sesame seed. Eggs, also called ‘nits’ will appear white
or yellow and are attached to the hair shaft. Often lice appear to take on the color of the host’s hair.

How do you detect head lice?

The scalp and hair must be thoroughly examined for the presence of eggs (‘nits’), nymphs and adult lice.

What are the symptoms of head lice?

Intense itching with moving and tickling sensations in the hair and scalp indicate a head lice infestation. Symptoms will intensify causing sores and welts from scratching. Those infected usually experience extreme distress and irritability.

How can a lice infestation advance?

Head lice feed on human blood several times throughout the day, leaving open sores. The open sores can become infections. People who suffer from blood-related medical conditions are especially susceptible.

How do lice spread?

Being in close contact with a host person, can cause lice and nits to spread. Wearing the persons clothing or using their personal items, like hats, hairbrushes and even toys can perpetuate the spread of these pests.
