Can you please tell me how headlice and dandriff differ?

Lice vs dandruff

Head_lice
One (dandruff) is a scalp condition and one (LICE) is an infection. Dandruff can be easily removed whereas a nit (louse egg) tends to adhere to the hair shaft.

What will happen if I scratch my scalp too much because of headlice?

You open the skin

Head-scalp
Scratching can actually open the skin surface to invasion by bacteria & could result in a significant scalp infection. It is best to keep the scalp as clean as possible with regular washing & avoid the temptation to scratch.

My daughters keeps itching her head I've looked for headlice bit doesn't seem to find any what could it be ?

Scalp Dermatitis?

Scalp dermatits can present only as dry/itchy scalp in the teen years. Seborrheic dermatitis may or may not be accompanied by tender, itchy pimples on the scalp, around the hair line, neck, chest and upper back. Some medicated shampoos can be harsh to actual hair shafts. If fine/fragile hair, only apply the shampoo to scalp skin.Condier Rx Ketoconazole 2% shampoo, alternate with OTC antidandruff

How many time do you have to be treated for headlice with listerene?

Likely won't work

Head_lice
There ar many over the counter products to treat head lice and some find daily rinses with pickling vinegar helpful, along with combing out the egg casing with a nit comb. I find listerine unlikely to be an effective treatment.

Dr. Tony T. Ho answered:

What do I have to do with headlice when it's not removed using Kwell Shampoo?

See doctor

Lice
Are there actual live lice present, or just nits? Lindane will kill nits, but can't remove them (they are cemented to your hair, and will just grow out as your hair grows). If there are live lice present, you can consider changing to a permethrin based lice shampoo, but definitely work on decontaminating your house; wash/dry clothes in hot water and high dry cycle, vacuum, etc.

Dr. Robert Kwok answered:

I have a long hair plus headlice. If I cut my hair, will headlice get off?

No

Nipple_confusion
One would have to cut her hair super super short in order to easily prevent lice, by easily seeing lice and nits (and thus getting rid of them). If one can find and remove all the nits (the eggs), then it doesn't matter how long the hair is.

Need help my daughters r always getting headlice and im having trounle getting rid of them and cant afforrd the treatments all the time?

HEADLICE

Cuts
You probably have to cut the hair short for recurrent headlice so it is easy to cure reinfection. They have to be careful not to expose to someone with headlice after treatment.

Dr. Alan J. Levine answered:

Why are headlice common in emergency medicine can anaemia cause lice?

Improper use of ER

Pediculosis
Head lice are common in emergency medicine because the parent did not contact the child's primary physician. This is never a condition that should waste the time and resources of an emergency room. As head lice is a superficial situation, it does not cause anemia.
