Dandruff vs head lice

Common Questions and Answers about Dandruff vs head lice


Avatar n tn I felt horrable for them because no one was allowed to play with them becuase of the lice in school my sister told me they were known as the head lice family. Ever time a check was done they would be sent home. My stepmother tried everything that was mentioned above and still years later they have it. My brother doesn't have it all the time because he will shave his head himself. They are Muntant Lice.
Avatar n tn My 2 children both had a case of head lice this past summer. I treated both of them but have been extremely paranoid every since. I always am checking their heads and mine. I have been seeing white things in their hair but they easily brush off. It seems like dandruff. This is all located around the ear area. Do I need to worry? I also constantly worry that I have lice..my head is itchy but I also only see what appears to be dandruff.

Avatar n tn I first noticed slight itching around the bottom side of my penis, on the soft skin right below the head a couple of days before Thanksgiving. Nothing serious, it almost tickled. That came and went for about 2 weeks. On a Thursday night 2 weeks after Thanksgiving I masturbated with Lubriderm Skin Therapy fragrance free, usually a pretty mild moisturizer. The next morning I woke up with a terribly itchy, burning, puffy (slightly inflammed) rash on my penis.
Avatar f tn A few days ago, I went to get my hair cut to lessen the weight on my head and the barber caught her comb in a snarl and pulled a section of my hair very hard. It feels like I was cut with a razor right where she pulled. I can feel EXACTLY where she pulled out the few hairs. It is severe and I don't know what is wrong. This was 5 days ago and it hurts very bad. I have seen several doctors for the scalp pain and they are still not sure what caused this or how to treat it.
Avatar n tn Prior to the cold baths, I used to feel them crawling in my ears, on my head and on my eyelashes, feet and genitals. Don't listen those negative responders. I've seen them and I know they are real. good luck This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/244120'>I definitely have some sort of bug/mite/flea infestation.</a>.
Avatar m tn I do not see anything visible as far as bites, but I always find bumps almost like insect bites in my scalp, usually the back of the head. This always occurs when the condition is very bad. I have had relatives experience the same symptoms when they sleep at my home. I have come to the conclusion that this is a type of mite/parasite that no one is familiar with in the U.S. If someone is having the same symptoms and has found the problem, please let me know.
Avatar n tn my 11 year old son had a virus on Thanksgiving 5 days later he started itching from head to toe no rash no hives nothing. we started him on benadryl and calamine lotiong, not relief so the Doctor gave him allegra and cortisone, no relief. Then the dermatologist gave him a shot of kenalog, and prescription cortisone. still no relief after two emergency room visits they gave him hydroxine and blood workups for kidney, liver, and thyroid came back normal.
