Can Head Lice Kill you? 

Big question: simple answer...NO! Lice are not fatal...not even close.

It has been said that too much of anything can kill you; but, is this the case when it comes to head lice? When a person finds out that he or she is infested with these little satanic bugs, it could seem like the end of the world-- like there’s no recovering from this. But the great news is that no case of head lice is too terrible to tame, and there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Can Head Lice Cause Death?

Head lice has not been known to cause death of human beings. Although excessive itching can occur, which in turn could cause infection, these cases are rare. Hypothetically, if the infection is disregarded, any infection could lead to more lethal consequences in the case that it is left untreated. Over-the-counter medicated shampoos could be the remedy for treating an irritated scalp. However, the only thing that could put a stop to the itching is the complete eradication of head lice and their nits (eggs).

Unluckily, some children and adults undergo allergic reactions to insect bites, which can cause severe itching. In this incidence, you should reach out to a professional for immediate treatment. LiceDoctors technicians remain willing and ready to assist in treating even the most insane conditions of head lice among our valued customers. Please visit www.licedoctors.com to learn more about how we can help.

Do Lice Carry Disease?

Lice may be disgusting to those who carry them, but always remember they are a condition not a disease. They are not poisonous, and typically cause no further harm than itching and discomfort. They do not carry disease. The worst they can do is cause itching and discomfort, as well as psychological upset, but the bugs are not known to carry any illnesses.
