Head Lice

Our dermatologists prescribe proper methods and medicated shampoos to minimize head lice on the scalp.

Synonyms: ■ Pediculosis capitis ■ ‘Cooties’

Key features

• This worldwide infestation is caused by bloodsucking, wingless, six- legged insects that only live on the hairs of the scalp 

• Diagnosis is usually confirmed by the presence of 0.8 mm eggs (‘nits’) firmly attached to scalp hairs 

• Head lice are spread by head-to-head contact as well as by fomite transmission 

• Resistance to traditional over-the-counter preparations (pyrethrin, permethrin) is growing; topical malathion and oral ivermectin are used in resistant cases .
