 Recommendations for the Treatment of Pediculosis Capitis (Head Lice) in Children
The diagnosis of head lice or pediculosis is made when there is an active infestation of the hair and scalp by the parasitic insect Pediculosis humanus capitis.
The condition is contagious as the insect is spread by direct head to head contact and less commonly by fomite transmission via brushes, hats, and pillowcases, etc. The insect feeds on the host’s blood by biting the scalp and the common symptom of scalp pruritis is caused by an immune response to the insect’s saliva.
