Curable, but . . .: Treatment must kill all the lice & anything (or person) you have close contact with must be free of lice or you will risk re-infestation. This is kind of like bed bugs- they can be killed but you have to kill them all. The environment (bedding, clothing, another person) may be carrying the parasite and you can develop a new case; or if treatment allowed some to survive, they will reproduce.

Possible, yes . . .: Certainly it is possible, but not likely. Since we observe food cravings but can't really define cause scientifically, we tend to attributed it to hormonal changes or even fetal needs. More likely to see cravings later in pregnancy.

Look at home: If you are okay everywhere but home, than home contains the problem. You need to look at home environment, ideally with a good therapist, to see what is trigger (e.g. live alone, have problems with others in household, etc.) to see how "major life changes" have caused either home environment to change and/or changed how you interact with home. Are you really sure it is only problem at home?
