How to Tell If You Have Lice

Head lice are tiny insects that live in hair. They’re particularly common in children aged 4 to 11 and are most often transmitted through head-to-head contact and activities that put affected children in close proximity to others.

Although the only way to diagnose head lice is through an in-clinic screening, there are a few telltale signs that caregivers can use as evidence of a lice infestation.

  • Visible Lice & Nits

    Lice are tiny and can range in color from clear to brown to red near the scalp. Nits can appear as white, grey and black on the scalp. Lice or nits (the eggs that new lice hatch from) may be seen from a visual inspection of hair follicles.

  • Itching Sensation

    The most common symptom of lice is an itching or tickling sensation around the scalp, caused by lice movement and shifting of hair strands. But the lack of itching does not mean it's not head lice. Only about half of the population itches from lice.

  • Sores or Bumps

    Though relatively harmless, lice feed on human blood for sustenance. This may cause allergic reactions in some people that create small bumps and sores around the scalp or neck.

  • Nighttime Activity

    Lice avoid light and are more active at nighttime, which may worsen symptoms and sleep quality for patients of all ages.

  • Proximity to Others With Lice

    Lice easily can move to new hosts during periods of close contact. If you suspect your child has been exposed to others with lice, a clinical screening is recommended.

Symptoms of Head Lice

What Are The Symptoms of Head Lice?

An itch here and a scratch there can seem like nothing at first. A few days later you notice that the scratching is becoming more frequent and seems as if it’s gradually getting worse. You might notice some raised patches of skin around your hairline and your first thought might be that you’re having a reaction to a recent hair care product you used.

How can I tell if my child has lice?

Head lice can be seen by the naked eye but it can be very difficult. Adult lice will be the easiest to spot because they are the biggest. But at the size of a sesame seed, they still aren’t that big.

Head lice are most commonly found on the scalp, behind the ears and near the neckline at the base of the head. Symptoms include a tickling sensation or feeling something moving through the hair.

It's after hours and I just realized my child has lice. What can I do?

Call or send us a text at 864-484-7087. If a technician is available to answer immediately, they will. Otherwise, someone will call the next morning. In the meantime, we wouldn’t recommend any drastic moves, without talking to us first. Pull your child’s hair back and make sure no one in the family goes head-to-head with each other. It’s not going to get much worse overnight- so let everyone get a good night’s sleep and tackle it in the morning. We definitely don’t advise you to stay up late washing laundry, applying a DIY clinic from the pharmacy, or searching the internet for advice. You’ll be doing a lot of needless work.

Where do lice come from?

Head lice have been around for millions of years and dried-up lice and their eggs have been found on the hair and scalps of Egyptian mummies! Head lice do not come out of the air or from the ground. They are human parasites that feed on blood and travel from one head to another. Head Lice are uniquely adapted to be on a human head. They would never choose to come off of a head and onto a pillow, hat, chair, etc.

How do lice spread?

Head lice can be spread whenever there is direct head-to-head contact with an infested individual. Lice may also be transmitted by items such as hats, hair ties, scarves, pillows, etc. However, this type of transfer is probably quite rare.

How can I treat my home for head lice?

The great news is lice are not environmental, like fleas or bedbugs. They do not invade your carpets, curtains, mattresses, etc like we grew up hearing. Lice are dependent on a human head to stay alive.

After a successful head lice treatment, we recommend a couple of precautions. Sheets should be washed in hot water and placed in a high-heat dryer for 40- minutes. Brushes, hairbands, etc can be cleaned out and placed in the freezer overnight.

If there were a certain place on the couch where an infected person always sits or a car seat cover that worries you, you can either lint roll it, spot vacuum it, or take the cover off and throw it in the dryer for 40- minutes.

Otherwise, your house is not an issue at all-and, thankfully, neither are your pets!

How can I prevent head lice?

This can be tricky. Head lice are so prevalent today that it can be difficult to avoid. Hair pulled back in a braid or a bun is a helpful deterrent. Spraying hair with an essential oil scent, such as peppermint spray, is another deterrent. Knowing that head lice are spread primarily through head- to- head contact, it makes sense to talk to your children about how they can limit their heads or hair touching friends’ heads or hair.

Only a small percentage of cases are transferred by secondary objects, but it still is wise not to share brushes, hats, scarves, etc.
