February 10, 2017 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Having head lice does not mean that you have poor hygiene. Most people get head lice when they have head-to-head contact with someone who has head lice. Head-to-head contact lets the lice crawl at a dramatic speed from one head to another head. Lice do not jump, nor do they fly as they do not have wings. The lice do not care whether the person has clean hair or dirty hair. The lice are looking for human blood, which they need to survive. Without a human host, head lice cannot survive.
Millions of people get head lice each year. Head-lice infestations are especially common in schools. In the United States, it is believed that about 6 to 12 million children between 3 and 12 years of age get head lice each year.
Head lice do not spread disease, but having head lice can make your scalp extremely itchy. Excessive scratching can cause sores on the scalp that may lead to an infection. Some people may actually lose sleep due to the itch being so intense, others may be asymptomatic.
