Read what has to say about lice.

Lice spread easily from one person to another through close contact or through shared clothing or personal items (such as hats or hairbrushes). A louse cannot jump or fly.

The most common symptom of lice is itching. There are different symptoms, depending on which type of lice you have.

Head lice may not cause any symptoms at first. Itching on the scalp may start weeks or even months after lice have started to spread. Scratching can make the skin raw. The raw skin may ooze clear fluid or crust over, and it may get infected.

You might find it interesting to know, though, that once a louse is on your head, it’s not going anywhere else; unlike fleas, nits can’t jump from one host to another, and so whichever head louse treatment you use against your unwanted guests, it’s good to know that your lice won’t be jumping on to anybody else at the first sign of trouble.
