Do I Have Lice or Am I Just Paranoid?

Do I Have Lice or Am I Just Paranoid?

Head lice are fairly common, but so are anxiety and paranoia. The brain is very complicated. Even just talking or writing about lice might make your head itchier than it has been all day. There are many signs of lice, and random itches are just one of them. One of the most common mistakes is wondering if you have lice or dandruff. Dandruff with a combination of paranoia could result in a very stressful situation where you think you might have lice. This is why you should know what lice look like and how to search for them properly. 

Signs of Lice

Some symptoms of lice are a tingling feeling on your scalp, intense itching, and possible bite marks near your neck, ears, or scalp. If you notice any of the symptoms you should check yourself for lice. To fully understand, you need to know what lice look like. Lice are oval-shaped, about the size of a poppy seed, and usually the same color as your hair. Now that you know what you are looking for, it is time to check your head for lice. The first thing you want to do is make a part in your hair with your fingers or a comb and hopefully, you notice some lice crawling around. If you don’t notice anything then the next thing you want to do is look for nits on the strands of your hair near your scalp. These tips should make it easier for you to tell if you have lice or not. 

Why You Might Be Itching Your Head

Besides lice, there are many reasons why you may be itching your head. One reason you might be itching is due to a scab, another reason is there might be dirt on your head from an outside activity that is irritating your scalp, and lastly one could simply be dandruff. Lice vs. dandruff is easily one of the most common mistakes due to the little flakes you see in your hair. The dandruff flakes can simply be mistaken for a nit. A somewhat different reason than the others could be paranoia. If your friend talks to you about having lice you might subconsciously scratch your head some more. These reasons are why it’s important to check your scalp regularly so you know whether you have lice or not.
