Pediculosis is a very common infestation caused by lice, parasites specific to humans. There are three different species of lice:
Pediculus humanus capitis (head louse; lives in the hair)
Pediculus humanus corporis (body louse, lives on the body and clothing)
Pthirus pubis (found in the pubic region)
Scabs appear on the neck
Eggs are visible
Lymph nodes are dilated
DID YOU KNOW:
Why do we feel the need to scratch when we have lice?
This is an allergic reaction to their saliva!
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS?
The characteristic symptom of pediculosis is itching, due to an irritative-allergic reaction to enzymes in the louse's saliva. Superficial lesions produced by scratching can result in impetigo of the scalp and inflammation of the lymph glands behind the ears and in the back of the neck (regional lymphadenopathy).
Sometimes the infestation can be symptomless, making it difficult to identify.
In schools, head lice affect 10 percent of students, amounting to about 1.5 million children each year.
- from 1 to 6 years old (800,000)
- from 7 to 12 years old (500,000)
- from 13 to 18 years old (200,000)
HOW DOES CONTAGION OCCUR?
Lice do not fly or jump: they are transmitted only through direct contact or the shared use of objects such as brushes, hats or towels.
WHERE DO THEY LIVE?
They colonize the scalp of their host, where they lay eggs (also called "nits"). Special lotions and fine-toothed combs must be used to remove them.
THE IMPORTANCE OF PREVENTION
There is nothing to be ashamed of! Head lice are not synonymous with being dirty or having poor hygiene. However, to reduce the risk of infestation, it is important to practice good hygiene, avoid sharing combs and clothing and check the nape of the neck often. There are also specific products that make the scalp an unfavorable environment for lice proliferation.
