Health Remedies - Head Lice

Product Categories

Head lice are parasitic insects specialized to live among hair present on the head. Their eggs, called nits also can be found commonly with head lice. Lice are highly contagious and can spread quickly from person to person, especially in group settings such as schools, play-grounds etc or by sharing hats, combs, hair brushes etc. They also can be transferred indirectly among clothing items when coats, hats and scarves hang or are stored touching one another.

The most common symptom of head lice infestation is itching of the scalp, caused when the louse bites through the skin to feed on blood. There may be itching in the area behind the ears and at the nape of the neck. The lice themselves are essentially harmless, although excessive scratching may cause bleeding of the scalp, which may increase the risk of microbial infection.
