Maybe you’ve been noticing a sensation of movement on your scalp—that creepy crawly feeling. Or your scalp has been itching and you can’t stop scratching. Maybe you’ve even noticed little sesame seed-sized bugs near your scalp, or tiny white nits attached to strands of hair. Your first question is: How did I get lice?
You many not be able to trace it right back to the source, mostly because those who have an infestation aren’t likely to admit to it; we still have a very strong social stigma attached to the condition. People assume that those who become afflicted with the head louse parasite are dirty or practice poor hygiene. In reality, however, the bugs and their nits actually prefer clean hair.
This parasite passes by head to head contact, or through the sharing of personal belongings that come into contact with the hair such as hairbrushes, bedding, coats, scarves and even gym equipment or yoga mats. Parents often catch it from their children, who may have come into contact with an infestation at school. Many will carry the bug for several weeks before realizing they even have it.
If you think back, you may be able to identify a situation in which head lice may have passed, but you may not. And really, it isn’t important where you got it, or how, or from whom. Now the important thing is simply getting rid of it. While parents may be savvy to the best treatment options, most adults without children simply aren’t accustomed to dealing with the issue.
If it is confirmed that you do indeed have an infestation, first, don’t panic. While this parasite is a nuisance, it is not typically dangerous and if it is handled promptly, you will soon be back to regular life.
Second, get the treatment that works. In your busy life, you don’t have time for endless runs to the drugstore or hours spent with questionable home remedies. You need a treatment that will do the job on the first try and put the issue to rest.
