LOOK: Netizen spotted tricycle driver with hair infested with lice

Head lice are small, wingless, blood-sucking insects. They live in the hair on your head and feed off the blood from your scalp. A louse (a single adult) is about the size of a sesame seed. A nit (louse egg) is about the size of a small flake of dandruff.

The worst part about having head lice is that it is contagious. One can become easily infected when the insect crawl onto the head or when one shares personal items such as a comb with a person who is infected with head lice. Luckily, there are quite numerous forms of treatment for head lice that are readily available and it only depends on the infected person to make an effort to cure head lice.
