Are Lice Microscopic Nuisances or Bloodsucking Parasites? Separating Fact from Fiction

Nothing itches more than a joke that comes back to bite you (in the head). If you grew up with friends, family members or colleagues with a lice infestation, and you were quick to make fun of them, chances are, you’re going to regret it soon enough. We’d love to tell you that contracting head lice is synonymous with being negligent about your health and cleanliness; that all you need is a high quality shampoo plus conditioner and regular showers to keep you safe. Unfortunately, that’s a utopian picture of the world, and what we’re really here to do is dispel myths and lay down some stone cold facts.

Itching for an Answer

Before pointing fingers at a lice victim, show some sensitivity to his or her plight and do your research. Remember the old saying about pointing one finger at others and three back at yourself? It couldn’t be truer in this case, and trust us when we say: you definitely don’t want an army of lice colonizing your hair with three times the force as its former host. The fact of the matter is, most people who contract a lice infestation are either children between the ages of 4 and 8, or adults with busy social lives who meet all kinds of people, unknowingly exposing their hair to a creepy crawly invasion. The best defense is a good offense. And that’s where you can benefit greatly from doing your homework and looking into non-toxic treatments to stay vigilant and safe. Help raise community awareness by spreading accurate information and debunking myths associated with head lice. Do your part to enlighten friends and family about the dangers of dismissing an infestation as a joke or making fun of those who suffer from its tormenting symptoms. While lice can be deemed a microscopic nuisance, they’re also blood-sucking parasites that feast on human hosts for as long as 30 days without effective intervention. Unfortunately, people who are usually subject to this condition, end up resorting to misguided lice removal treatments, unable to find successful home remedies for lice removal.
