Lice

Lice

Lice, also known as pediculosis, are tiny parasitic insects that infest the hair and scalp of humans and other animals. They feed on blood by biting the skin, causing itching and discomfort. Lice are highly contagious and can spread from person to person through direct head-to-head contact or by sharing personal items like combs, brushes, hats, and bedding.
