Symptoms, remedies, treatments and care for Head Lice

Head Lice

Head lice are small, parasitic insects without wings that feed on human blood. Adult head lice are only about two to three millimeters in length. Head lice develop on the scalp, particularly behind the ears, on top of the head, and near the neckline. They attach their eggs (nits) to the base of the hair shafts.

Some of the head lice symptoms include intense itching, red bumps on scalp and neck, and finding lice or lice eggs on your hair or body.

Head lice are spread by direct head to head contact.
