Head lice (pediculosis capitis) is a common, highly contagious infection that often occurs in nurseries, day care centers, and schools. It is caused by infestation with the human head louse, Pediculus humanus capitis, and it is usually very itchy. Symptoms of pediculosis include:
• A feeling that something is moving in your hair or on your body
• Difficulty sleeping- because the lice are most active during the night
• Sores caused by scratching
HOW IS PEDICULOSIS DIAGNOSED?
Diagnosis of Pediculosis depends on the symptoms and physical examination. The general physician may examine the hairy parts thoroughly to detect eggs or larvae of lice. Pediculosis spreads as long as the eggs remain alive on the clothing or the body of the person.
HOW IS PEDICULOSIS TREATED?
The treatment of Pediculosis includes chemical treatments, natural products, combs, shaving, and medication to cure Pediculosis.
DID YOU KNOW?
The term pediculosis comes from the Latin word pediculus, meaning louse. Pubic lice, which are sometimes called crabs because of their shape, are considered a sexually transmitted disease (STD) and infected persons should be checked for other STDs. Body lice are often found among homeless or overcrowded populations and on people who do not change their clothing and bedding often. While head and pubic lice do not generally cause any other diseases, body lice can spread typhus and trench fever
