Symptoms and Causes

Lice feed on human blood and can be found on the scalp, body, and pubic area. The female louse attaches eggs (nits) firmly to hair shafts. Some of the symptoms indicating lice in your head include: 

  • Presence of lice or lice eggs on the scalp, body, clothing, or pubic hair
  • Sores on the scalp, neck, and shoulders from scratching
  • Bite marks, especially around the waist, groin, upper thighs, and pubic area
  • Intense itching on the scalp, body, or genital area
  • Tickling feeling from hair movement

Lice spread through head-to-head or body-to-body contact, sharing personal items, and contact with furniture or bedding with lice. Pubic lice can spread through sexual contact and are more common in adults, but their presence in children may be a sign of exposure or abuse. Intense itching is the most common symptom, accompanied by a tickling feeling, sores from scratching, irritability, and the appearance of lice eggs.
