Small Bugs In Hair Not Lice
My kid has these kinda tiny long thin tan bugs w a little brown in her hair what r they?? we have washed her hair w the lice stuff n there still there
Well, yes, but...: Without question head lice are the most logical and the most common pests in the hair. However, technically any flying bug or crawling insect could potentially use your scalp for a temporary "hotel". Roaches, ants, fleas, mosquitoes--just to name a few possibilities--but these would not remain or "live" in your hair for very long. Ticks are common in texas as another possibility. See your doctor. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

My friend has these little white bugs that crawl around in her hair. Its not lice or dandruff. It's bigger than lice and it's alive. What could it be and can it be treated?
Lice: Your description is a bit creepy. If you want to try a first step go buy some NIX germicidal shampoo and apply it to the scalp for a couple of hours. Rinse it out well. Examine the hair shafts for nits (white cacoons) and cimb or pick them off. Wash all the bedding and buy new combs etc. It maybe better to go right to the doctor with examples in hand to get a more aggressive approach. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

Bugs in my hair that's not lice and they are invisible what could this be? They sting me all during the day and hurt so much. Can you help me please
We have treated my hair so many times for lice. The bugs look like lice but what else could it be? I can't tell if I have nits or dandruff
Dandruff flakes off: Dandruff flakes off easily while nits are essentially "glued" to the hair shaft and are difficult to remove. Very important to treat entire household with a lice shampoo (Nix, Rid, etc) and to launder all bedding incl pillows, mattress covers, sheets, etc. in very hot water (120 degrees). Use "nit comb" to remove all nits from hair, be diligent, repeat until nits gone. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
