Invasion by pests or parasites into the body result in parasitic diseases known as Infestation. Ticks, lice and bedbugs are some parasites which survive outside the host body. On the other hand there are other parasites(certain worms) which live and breed inside the body. These parasites cause infections and interfere with the normal functioning of the body, thereby reducing the lifespan of the host.
HOW IS INFESTATION DIAGNOSED?
Maintaining proper hygiene and regular washing of clothes and bedding help in preventing body lice infestation.
