Many people get head lice as kids but then forget about them until they suspect an outbreak on their own children. So what are head lice anyways? The head louse (lice) is a tiny, wingless parasitic insect that lives among human hairs and feeds on tiny amounts of blood drawn from the scalp. Lice are a very common problem, especially for kids. They’re contagious, annoying, and sometimes tough to get rid of. Although they are frustrating to deal with, lice aren’t dangerous. They don’t spread disease, although their saliva can make a child’s scalp itchy and irritated, and scratching can lead to infection. It’s best to treat head lice quickly once they’re found because they can spread easily from person to person.
