Lice children’s hair. Do head lice cause any kind of infections or infectious diseases? Actually no, head lice do not transmit or spread any diseases or health problems of any kind. First of all why do head lice have such a bad reputation? Because, due to head lice stigma, head lice are often confused with body lice. Body lice are different from head lice, but this fact seems to have been lost in all of the confusion about lice. Body lice do transmit disease, body lice are best known for typhus epidemics in times of war or unrest in the last century. Finally, there is no chance that your child could possibly have body lice because, as long as your child wears clean clothes, bathes regularly and does not live in a war zone or a refugee camp, it is not possible for your child to have body lice.
