Answer . Pediculus humanus capitus (head lice), Pediculus humanus corporis (body lice),\nand Phthirius pubus (crab lice) are the three variants in humans. I believe the difference is that they are different sub-species.
Answer . Lice eggs don't move when you pull them with your finger nails. Dandruff will move.
You can get lice by sharing combs, hats, brushes, or hair ties withsomeone who has the bug. You can even get it by putting your headon their pillow or hugging them. I got lice once from a girl atcamp and I don't ever share my hair things with anyone for thatreason. So it is very easy to get them. Bu…t don't worry, it doesn'tmake you a gross person if you happen to get it. Just get a stronglice shampoo/nit comb and get the little suckers out. They spread from person to person when kids' heads touch, but canalso be spread by sharing clothing, headphones, hats, combs,towels, or toys. ( Full Answer )
no you can not kill lice with alcohol. First this is a "myth" and I would not recommend using alcohol in your child's hair or even your hair. The fact is you need to get rid of lice and their nits (eggs) and the only way to do this is to find a treatment that will breakdown the lice's skeletal sy…stems and the nits (nits have a protective shell like protecting them, which is why they are hard to kill or remove they also stick to the hair shaft or scalp with a glue like substance). My kids got infected with head lice and the school nurse reccomended we use Lice Goodbye from Fairtytaleshaircare.com. It is their head lice removal kit and has no harmful chemicals. My kids are head lice free. I am very happy I found their product because I too was ready to try at home remedies like mayonaise, oliveoil, and alcohol treatments since over the counter treatments are so expensive and this is affordable! These home remedies don't work, don't waste your time and it will prob do more damage than anything else!! www.fairytaleshaircare.com No. Go to your local drug or discount store and get the products made to kill lice.

Head lice have evolved with their human hosts since ancient times. No one knows exactly why we have them as they serve no identifiable purpose and are not known to spread disease. There are 3 types of lice that have human hosts: head lice, body lice, and pubic lice. All are different species and …exhibit different physical characteristics and life cycles. ( Full Answer )
u know u realy should chek if u have lice. u usually cant see them with ur own eyes so just ask some1 else to check 4 ya any ways thanx for reading BYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! try a new shampoo, you may have sensitive skin
The most important thing is to have a confirmed diagnosis. If head lice are suspected, contact a health care provider (physician, pharmacist, nurse, nurse practitioner, physician assistant, school nurse, etc) and have them confirm an ACTIVE infestation. A lot of people are treated for misdiagnose…d head lice. Then, ask for their recommendation for a treatment from a health care provider. They can tell you if it's appropriate for the severity of your infestation,your age, your medical history, etc. There are many treatments ranging from home remedies to prescriptions. All have positives and negatives. Be aware that no home remedy is scientifically proven to work. Many over the counter products also do not have clinical studies as most are not FDA approved product. Any product that is FDA approved must go through several stages of clinical trials and approval before being available (most by prescription only). It is critical, once you have a treatment, to follow the directions exactly as stated by the manufacturer. Most products do not have the ability to kill nits (eggs), so additional treatment(s) will be necessary to kill them once they hatch. ( Full Answer )
No, not at all. They cannot jump only crawl and that has been anunknown fact for some time. Even my doctor thought it was true butit is not. Lice go from head to head by head to head contact andone louse can crawl onto another strand of hair rather quickly Let's clear that point up a bit. It is cor…rect that lice do notjump, a fact that has been known to entomologists and anyone elsewho bothered to examine lice properly, for centuries at least, morelikely for thousands of years. It certainly is true that head-to-head contact permits head lice tospread from one person to another. However, they can spread inother ways as well. For example, they lay their eggs (called nits)on hairs, and any hair with a nit stuck onto it can infect anotherperson if it drops out or they share a comb that pulls out a hairwith nits on it, or they sleep in the same bed and the lice crawlabout. You did not ask about treating louse infestations. My main adviceis to ask either your doctor or pharmacist or even your vet;whatever you do, do not use the dangerous and idiotic ideas thatunqualified people come up with, such as petroleum jelly, kerosene,creams; I have even heard of those who tried to smother the lice bywearing bathing caps at night! In case you simply cannot get to a doctor or a vet, you can safelyuse almost any pet shampoo that is recommended for fleas, ticks, orlice of any sort. It is a lot safer, pleasanter, and more effectivethan those home remedies, some of which have led to people burningto death, or losing skin or hurting their eyes, and generally stillnot killing all the lice.

You get the lice stuff that you get to put on your head (a liquid shampoo stuff) and then after you do that take a shower and spend hours picking eggs out of your head.
Definitely not. There is also a slight possibility that it makes it worse. Try Tee Tree products.. Head & Shoulders does work. I find it quite good. There are also shampoos out there called Nizorol and T-Gel that are also good for dandruff.
Head Lice cannot jump and they do not live on other animals. You get them from head to head contact with another person. The lice crawl from their head to yours. If you get more than one louse and they breed, then you get eggs which hatch and you have an infestation.
\nNo. They lay eggs and hatch. You must buy a special shampoo and comb, you can get this at any store or ask at the pharmacy counter.
Dandruff is white , nits are transparent. Nits are found attached to the hair and dandruff is on the scalp. Dandruff is flaky whereas nits are hard.
Yes, you can get both pubic lice and chlamydia many, many times if you are re-exposed. You can have both STDs at the same time.
Head Lice ( pediculus humanus capitis ) are not the same as feline lice. Human head lice need a human to feed on. Head lice feed on a human scalp several times a day.
Eat foods with zinc like beans, nuts, eggs, brewers yeast, pumpkin seeds. Tea Tree Oil Shampoo is good as is Apple Cider Vinegar as a hair treatment. You can also add a tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar to a glass of water and drink twice a day for general health.
My daughter just had head lice and used the treatment nitenz the headlice is all gone but all its left is the nasty smell of the treatment and large flakes of dandruff?
I had the same problem with my son, I just had to keep washing his hair until I got most of the smell away then I put some Tea Tree oil on his hair and it smelt okay then. Make sure she goes to bed with her hair tied up as the chemicals they put in the lotion aren't that good for their lungs
