Lice infestation
Lice infestations (pediculosis) are infections of the skin, hair, or genital region caused by lice living directly on the body or in hats or other garments. Lice are small wingless insect-like parasites with sucking mouthparts that feed on human blood and lay their eggs on body hairs or in clothing. The name pediculosis comes from the Latin word for louse (singular) or lice (plural). Description
Lice infestations are not dangerous infections by themselves. It is, however a serious public health problem because some lice can carry organisms that cause other diseases, including relapsing fever trench fever , and epidemic typhus . Although trench fever is self-limiting, the other two diseases have mortality rates of 5%-10%. Pubic lice are often associated with other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) but do not spread them. Lice infestations are frequent occurrences in areas of overcrowding or inadequate facilities for bathing and laundry. They are often associated with homelessness in the general population or with military, refugee, or prisoner camps in war-torn areas. All humans are equally susceptible to louse infestation; the elderly, however, are more vulnerable to typhus and other diseases carried by lice.
The symptoms of lice infestations vary somewhat according to body location, although all are characterized by intense

It is a relatively uneventful school day which is abruptly interrupted by the arrival of the "nit nurse". As a result of the information sent home, painful parental probing of heads follows, together with contagious and synchronised scratching. As the fine toothed combs are dragged through the hair of complaining and recalcitrant children, vile smelling shampoo is put into action, very often on a "just in case" basis.
Like it or not our bodies are the habitat for a wide range of organisms. Whether it is our skin or hair, teeth or intestine, blood or nerves, our bodies provide all the resources for healthy living for a huge variety of organisms. Lice are just one type of parasites which thrive on the human body.

by Mike Potter, Extension Entomologist University of Kentucky College of Agriculture
Most people associate winter with the end of their insect problems. In the case of head lice, nothing could be farther from the truth. It is incorrect to associate head lice with the stigma of poverty and poor personal hygiene. In fact, it's estimated that ten percent of elementary school children are treated for head lice each year.
Diagnosing the Problem
Head lice are bloodsucking insects that live exclusively on humans. They usually infest only the head, preferring the nape of the neck and the area behind the ears. Head lice are especially common on schoolchildren between the ages of three and ten. Schools bring large numbers of children together in close, personal contact. Hats and coats are often shared or hung together in the same closet, permitting transfer of lice from one child to another. Transfer of head lice can also occur by using infested combs and brushes, or resting one's head on upholstered furniture or pillows recently used by an infested person.
Head lice life stages
University of Kentucky Entomology The first indication of head lice is itching and scratching caused by the bloodsucking habits of the louse. Examination of the hair and scalp will usually reveal the white or grayish crawling forms (about the size of a sesame seed) and yellowish white eggs (nits) attached to the hair shafts close to the scalp. The nits are sometimes mistaken for dandruff or residues of shampoo but will not wash off or be flicked off with a finger. Usually all life stages can be seen with the naked eye, although a flashlight and hand lens are helpful. Red bite marks or scratch marks are often seen on the scalp or neck.

History Treatment Prevention References
Because the Sunshine State has a significant tourist population, people who have the rash return to their respective states or countries, seeking follow-up care from their local health care facilities. This has prompted calls to Florida's Public Health Offices and emergency departments, requesting information as to the origins of the rash and recommendations for treatment. Many persons expressed confusion and fear that they had contracted a communicable disease, such as venereal disease, chickenpox, or measles. Periodic outbreaks have existed before this decade, and it is possible that this form of dermatitis has been around for centuries. Fishermen have long been acquainted with it, affirming reports in Cuba, Puerto Rico, Mexico, and the Caribbean islands. Names such as "sea poisoning," "sea critters," and "ocean itch" have been used as descriptions of this seasonal affliction. A Bahamian old wives' tale specifically warns against ocean swimming between Mother's Day and Father's Day yearly. A local resident from Miami, Florida, described bathing on the beach in the spring of 1903 as the "year we were all poisoned... with some kind of rash which set up an intense itching. It was not so bad for us as we could stay home and doctor ourselves with lotions but the poor men having to work in the fields or hot packing houses were the ones who really suffered."

Human Lice
William F. Lyon Human lice infestations known as "Pediculosis" affects persons of all ages, whether rich or poor, from the Arctic to the Tropics and throughout history. Blood is the only source of nourishment. Infestations can cause persistent itching and scratching on the scalp. Usually in severe situations, scarred, hardened, pigmented skin known as "Vagabond's Disease" may occur along with a rash and swollen lymph glands in the neck or under the arms. Inspection of the hair by a hand lens or magnifying glass may reveal small, silvery louse egg cases (nits) attached to individual hairs and/or minute, grayish specks moving within the hair, usually at the back of the head and behind the ears. Body Louse and Head Louse Pediculosis is spread mainly by direct contact with an infested person or stray hairs containing nits, personal items such as wigs, combs, hairbrushes, hair rollers, towels, pillowcases and clothing, especially hats, sweaters, scarves, etc. Treatment should be made immediately since lice populations can spread rapidly and throughout the family, school and other close living quarters. Usually, most lice that fall off the hair (that do not fall off easily) will not survive longer than two to three days, while nits can remain viable for up to 14 days off the human host. Human lice are not transmitted by pets such as dogs, cats, gerbils, birds, etc. These lice do not survive on domestic animals.

79. Pubic Lice - Health Information
Health information discussing pubic lice, crabshaped insects, which attachthemselves to human hairs. Infection is common and found worldwide.
Go to PDF Version Pubic Lice WHAT IS IT?
Pubic lice, commonly referred to as "crabs" are small, crab-shaped insects (Phthirus pubis), which attach themselves to human hairs. Pubic lice/crabs usually live in the pubic hair but can sometimes be found in axillary or armpit hair, facial hair, or even eyelashes. Infection is common and found worldwide. WHAT CAUSES IT?
Pubic lice occur when adult lice lay eggs, called nits, on the hair shaft close to the skin. The egg, which is white to yellow and oval shaped, requires 7-10 days to hatch into a nymph. Nymphs and adult lice feed on human blood. WHAT ARE ITS COMMON SYMPTOMS?
It is possible to be infested with pubic lice and have no symptoms. More commonly, itching occurs, which worsens at night. Pubic lice are difficult to see because of their location and appearance. Grayish-white lice blend in with white skin and brown lice can be mistaken for moles or can be hard to see on black skin. A rash or faint bluish spots might be noted at the site of bites. If lice infest the eyebrows or eyelashes, the eyes may become inflamed. HOW IS IT TRANSMITTED?

Go to PDF Version Head Lice Head lice infection, also known as pediculosis, is very common and can occur at any age, to either sex and is not limited to the poor or certain racial or ethnic groups. Learn how to recognize head lice infestation, how to treat it, and how to prevent it from coming back. WHAT ARE HEAD LICE?
These tiny parasitic insects (Pediculosis capitis) live in human hair (not on pets) and require human blood for survival. They hatch from small eggs called nits, which are attached to the base of individual hairs. The nits hatch into nymphs in about 7-10 days. Nymphs reach maturity in another 7-10 days. The adult louse is about the size of a sesame seed with six legs and a color range from off-white to reddish-tan. The female louse can live up to 30 days, laying as many as six eggs a day. Lice can only crawl, they cannot jump or fly. HOW DOES SOMEONE GET HEAD LICE?
The most common form of transmission is direct contact with someone infested with head lice. Transmission may also occur by borrowing and using an infected person's a comb or brush, hats, ribbons, scarves or other head coverings. You can also get head lice by sharing towels or pillowcases, or lying on a bed, couch or carpet that has recently been in contact with a person's head infested with lice.
