Not all information from review is here
Head lice (Pediculus humanus capitus)are about the size of a sesame seedand can easily be seen, although theyhide quickly in response to light.Their eggs, called nits, are barelyvisible, whitish ovals cemented to hair shafts.Head lice are extremely contagious,especially among school children.
Main symptom: itchingFemale louse lives about 1 month andlays eggs which hatch in 7-10 days whichare found in the hair shafts close to thescalpChild commonly ridiculed/embarrasedLice visible to eye, as are nits (eggs)
They afflict an estimated 6 to 12million children in the UnitedStates.Twice as many girls as boys gethead lice, not because of greater hair length, but because girlshave more physical contact withone another and share morepersonal articles (hats, clothing,combs, headphones) that cantransmit head lice.Head lice are rare among African-Americans, possibly because theshafts of hair have a shape thatlice cannot grasp easily.
