Catch the suspects: After a patient catches 2-3 of suspected bugs and puts them in a plastic urine container (and tighten the lid), the doctor can send them to the lab for "parasite identification." The lab will name the bugs and the doctor can decide the treatment. If the lab say "no parasites," then the problem is harder to treat because then the patient's illness is "believing she has bugs when there are no bugs." ...Read more

I have had an itchy scalp for a month. More around the nape of head. No lice. I also have small red bumps that are tender to touch. What could or be?
Can check every day: May be big adult lice. The usual plan is to have somebody remove every nit (lice eggs) he can find after the first Nix (or other lice-killer) shampoo. Checking hair and head for lice or nits, every day, will prevent lice from gaining a foothold again. Repeating the Nix (permethrin) shampoo in 1 week helps. As long as any and all nits are quickly removed each day, the lice problem goes away. ...Read more
