Pediculosis is a highly contagious infection that involves the infestation of lice in the hairy parts of the human body. The infection is highly contagious, since lice have the tendency to migrate into other hosts. The primary symptoms include itching and irritation on the affected areas. Owing to excessive itching the irritations often lead to soreness, swelling and infection.
