SYMPTOMS OF HEAD LICE INFESTATION

Hematophage Infestation is characterized by the constant itching feeling in the scalp region which is caused by the bites of the head louse as they break the skin to get access to the blood underneath the skin. The human body has an allergic reaction to these bites and the result is the itching sensation.

If the itching is very prevalent then sores might appear from constant scratching. These sores can become infected if proper care is not taken and irritability sets in.
