Lice treatment: Over the counter products for lice treatments are available, but can be toxic. Some families have been successful smothering the lice with Cetaphil cleanser applied to dried hair, then dried with a hair dryer and washed the next day. Reinfestation will occur if nits are not completely removed and bedding/clothing/brushes are not treated.

If I had public lice of scabies, what sort of symptoms could I expect? Would you have bites on hand and penis?

Itching: Scabies shows up as tiny bites but the "bugs" are too small to see. The bites can be anywhere on the body, including the back of the hand (not so much the palm) and the penis. With lice, you can see the tiny white bugs. They don't tend to produce visible bites. They are in the hair - scalp or pubic.

Reinfestation?: If your head lice has infested your wife, you will need to get the whole household including yourself treated at the same time otherwise the cycle will never end. Having said that, the residual itching may last some days after the lice have been eradicated.

Where did the first lice come from?

Where did the first lice come from?

See below: Lice have origins dating back to prehistory, and early recorded history contains accounts of lice infestations. Lice do not spontaneously appear, and are not found in dust. Like other species, head lice result from breeding. Head lice infest humans, so pets like dogs and cats cannot contract or spread infestations. Lice have a lifespan of approximately one month.
