It seems everyone still believes that you itch when you have lice. In fact most people never itch when they have head lice. Body lice and pubic lice may have itching symptoms right away but head lice never do.
Removing Nits. What does this front page headline really mean? That lice are still very very unpopular in the United States. Head lice are confused with body lice and pubic lice, that’s why head lice have such a strong stigma. In fact head lice stigma should be removed because head lice are harmless and almost all children are exposed to them regularly during their childhoods. Thereby giving most US children the chance for head lice transmission often during elementary school.
Moms and Dads you can now stop worrying about super lice. Boston Magazine recently interviewed NitWits to learn more about super lice.
