Head Lice and Diseases

Head Lice Infections 

Many parents first concerns when they find out their children have got head lice on their hair and scalp is whether or not they can cause any serious diseases. Though head lice do carry bacteria and puncture the skin of the scalp, neck and face, it is very uncommon to have diseases transmitted by a louse.

A much more likely scenario is the possibility that the bite from the louse may become itchy because of the toxins contained in louse saliva. In some cases, continual scratching of the bitten area can cause infection at the wound site.


For instance, there has recently been an article written in The Express with the head line:

Impetigo can be caused by head lice - use this method of treatment to avoid infection


The journalist explains that if the scalp becomes sore and your child has a raised temperature and feels unwell, this could be a sign the skin has become infected with the bacteria that causes impetigo, according to the British Association of Dermatologists.
