Lice only infect humans and they are spread by direct contact with someone who is already infected or by use of their belongings (such as hats, brushes or combs). The most common symptom of children infected with head lice is itching , although some children do not complain if they have a light infestation.

Small tan sesame seed-sized lice are seen scattered amongst the hairs of the head. Head lice are relatively common, particularly among children, and can cause itching, sometimes to the point of excoriation with risk for secondary infection. The lice and their eggs can easily be passed from one person to another with close contact or from sharing combs, towels, etc.

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 head lice?
Head lice are tiny insects that live on the scalp, feeding on human blood. They lay eggs, called nits, which stick to strands of hair very close to the scalp. Head lice do not cause or spread disease and are not a health hazard. Anyone can get head lice. Having head lice does not mean a person is unclean. Head lice are commonly spread among children and adults who may stay close together in one place, such as in child care settings and schools.
How are head lice spread?
Head lice are spread through direct head-to-head contact between people. Head lice cannot jump or fly from one person to another. Although less likely, head lice can also be spread by children sharing hats, combs, hairbrushes or headphones. Children should be discouraged from sharing these personal items.

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?

A Fact Sheet on Head Lice
What are head lice?
Head lice are small, wingless insects about the size of a sesame seed that live on the human scalp and hair as parasites. They survive by feeding on the blood from the scalp of their host, and cannot survive for more than one or two days without access to a person's blood. RETURN TO CONTENTS
What are nits?
Nits are the small, oval shaped eggs of head lice. They may be tan, reddish-colored or brown. The nits are hard to see until after they hatch. Once hatched, the casing is white and easier to see. The lice are harder to see than the nits because they are tiny, fewer in number, and crawl rapidly away from light. RETURN TO CONTENTS
How can you tell if someone has head lice?
Diagnosis of head lice is usually made based upon the presence of nits or live lice. The nits are firmly cemented to a strand of hair, and are usually found within a quarter inch of the scalp at the nape of the neck and behind the ears. A person who is infested with lice may experience itching and skin irritation. If you see nits or lice, contact your primary care provider for treatment instructions.
