    Head Lice
    Published In this Guideline:
    Many families with young children have at least one encounter with the head louse, Pediculus humanus capitis. Head lice can infest people of all ages, but children are prone to infestations because of their habit of playing in close contact, sharing hats, headphones, combs and brushes, sleeping bags, stuffed animals, and clothing. In fact, the problem of head lice can be so rampant among preschool and school-aged children that often schools must work in conjunction with many families to control an infestation. An individual family may be able to control head lice at home, but the child can be reinfested when he/she comes in contact with an untreated, infested child.
    The most common symptom of infestation is intense itching on the back of the head or neck. The itching occurs when the lice bite and suck blood from the scalp. Immediately examine children who repeatedly scratch their heads. Because lice can be hard to spot, examine individual hair shafts, especially at the nape of the neck and behind the ears. With a good light source, look for tiny

    (right)Egg of same species attached to feather Mallophaga - biting lice - are probably better thought of as chewing lice as they are not blood feeders. They feed on dead skin and fragments of hair or feathers. They are found on mammals and birds although the majority are found on birds. Eyes in Mallophaga are either absent or very reduced and the mandibles are developed for chewing. The order is divided into the suborders Amblycera and Ischnocera. The Amblycera are generally considered to be more primitive with hosts including birds, marsupials and mammals. Bird lice are characterized by having two tarsal claws on each leg whilst only one tarsal claw is present on lice of mammals. Amblycera feed on skin debris primarily although blood feeding may occur due to the rasping action of the mandibles. Ischnocera are usually referred to as feather or hair lice as they are adapted to cling onto these structures rather than the skin. Their diet consists of mostly keratin and in order for digestion to occur gut symbionts or specific enzymes are present. Eggs of both suborders are laid singularly and glued to the hosts hair or feathers. They are laid close to the skin as a higher temperature is maintained here. Eggs usually develop in approximately one to two weeks. Total development time from egg to adult therefore takes from three to five weeks. Adult lifespan has been reported to vary from one month to several months.

    Human Lice
    Only three of the 200 known species of sucking lice
    infest humans. They are the head louse, the body louse
    and the crab or pubic louse. Sucking lice are
    ectoparasites which feed on the blood of their host. They
    are flattened dorso-ventrally and their legs are adapted
    for clinging to the body hairs of their hosts.
    The life cycles of the three human lice are very
    similar. The "nits" (eggs) are cemented to hairs (Crab
    and head lice) or to fibers and seams of clothing (body
    louse). The eggs hatch in 8 to 10 days (at 80-85 degrees F). Eggs fail to hatch if they are exposed to temperatures lower than 70 degrees F for 7 to 9 days. The louse nymphs (immature) feed on the blood of their host and molt three times before developing into sexually mature adults. After mating, the females begin to deposit small numbers of eggs each day for 20 to 30 days. A female crab louse deposits a total of about 30 nits. Head lice deposit 50-100 nits and body lice deposit 275-300 nits. The entire life cycle requires 21 to 27 days, and

    Head Lice and Nits
    Head lice are common. They can usually be cleared by treatment.
    What are head lice and nits?
    • Head lice are tiny grey/brown insects. They are about the size of a sesame seed (the seeds on burger buns). Head lice cling to hairs, but stay close to the scalp which they feed off. They lay eggs which hatch after 7-10 days. It takes about 10 days for a newly hatched louse to grow to an adult and start to lay eggs.
    • Nits are the empty white egg shells which are left when the lice hatch. Nits can look like dandruff, but stick strongly to hair. Unlike dandruff, you cannot easily brush out nits.
    Who gets head lice? Head lice are common in children, but can affect anyone at any age. They are not a sign of dirty hair or poor hygiene. Close 'hair to hair' contact is usually needed to pass lice on. Head lice cannot jump or fly, but walk from one head to another. They soon die when away from hair, and do not live in clothes, bedding, etc. Most head lice infections are caught from family or close friends who are not aware that they have head lice. What are the problems with head lice?

    Pubic Lice by fpa What are pubic lice and how are they passed on? What happens if pubic lice aren't treated? Where to go for help and advice ... How to avoid STIs? What are pubic lice and how are they passed on? Pubic lice are sometimes called 'crabs' and live in coarse body hair. They're often found in pubic hair. They can also live in underarm hair and on hairy legs and chests, and occasionally in beards, eyebrows and eyelashes. Pubic lice are a yellow-grey colour and about 2mm long. They can sometimes be seen on the skin. They have large, crab-like claws which they use to fasten themselves to hair. They are easily treated with a special lotion or shampoo. Pubic lice are usually passed on through sexual contact, or more rarely through close physical contact.
    • Pubic lice crawl from hair to hair, they don't fly or jump.
    • The eggs of the lice can survive away from the body for a short time, it's possible for them to be passed on by sharing clothes, bedding or towels.

    What are head lice?
    Pediculus humanus capitis , head lice are tiny (2-4mm) wingless insects that spend their entire lives on human heads. Adult head lice look like six-legged grains of rice, and vary in color from grayish-white to reddish-brown. Female lice lay eggs, or nits, by gluing them tightly to hair close to the scalp. A single female produces between 80 and 100 eggs in her lifetime. Over 90% of these nits will hatch within 7-11 days, and mature in another 8-9. The new adults will live for about 22 more days, laying the next generation of nits. Lice can not fly, hop or jump, but they can crawl with surprising speed. They may temporarily move onto hats, clothes or other surfaces, but must return to a human head within 50-60 hours to survive.
    Who can get head lice?
    With the exception of the common cold, head lice affect more school-age children than all other communicable childhood diseases combined. In the US, as many as 6 million children are treated for lice each year. Head lice are most frequently found on children between the ages of 3 and 10, and are slightly more likely to affect girls than boys. African-Americans and others with naturally kinky hair are usually spared lice infestations - kinky hair is oval in cross section, and female lice select round hairs for nit-laying. Despite these generalizations, it is important to understand anyone can get lice, including the older siblings, parents and teachers of children who have been infected.

    HEAD LICE What are the symptoms of a head lice infestation? The earliest and most common symptom of a head lice infestation is itching, particularly in the area behind the ears and at the nape of the neck. Intense scratching may lead to secondary bacterial infection. How are head lice spread? Head lice can be passed from person to person through direct contact. But they also can be transferred indirectly among clothing items when coats, hats and scarves hang or are stored touching one another (in cloak rooms or when these items are placed against one another on coat hooks or racks). Head lice also can be spread when infested hair brushes or combs are shared or when infested bedding, towels or shower caps are shared. Once present in a home, school or institutional environment, head lice usually spread rapidly. There are many misconceptions about head lice. They do not transmit communicable diseases. They do not jump or fly; they can only crawl. Head lice depend completely on their host for nourishment; their only source of food is human blood. The prevalence of head lice infestation is no different in individuals with long hair than in those with short hair. Head lice seldom occur on eyebrows or eyelashes. They infest persons from all socioeconomic levels, without regard for age, race, sex or standards of personal hygiene. Animals are not a source of human lice. How long do head lice live?
