Winged Brown Bugs In My Hair
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
Very likely.: Bedbug bites have a blotchy, smudgy, red appearance. They also remain close to their hosts, and in beds and couches, and they tend to have the smell of over-ripe rasberries. Pubic lice cause intense pubic, axillary, and periocular pruritis. Close contact, sharing of clothes, and lack of washing can easily transmit lice, and probably bedbugs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hi m south indian.Why doesn't shaving my head restore my grey hairs with black ones?The black hair cell died?
Gray Hair: Hair turns gray because of age and genetics, in that genes regulate the exhaustion of the pigmentary potential of each individual hair follicle. This occurs at different rates in different hair follicles. For some people it occurs rapidly, while in others it occurs slowly over several decades. Once the pigment is depleted, the hair will be gray or white and will never have pigment again. ...Read more
I have small, dark (my hair is dark brown) hairs growing all over my body. Under chin, buttocks, stomach, even my cheeks, forehead etc! is this bad?
It depends: Whether this is a problem or not depends on when this started. If you have had this since childhood or early adolescence or if this is seen often in your family/geographic region, it may not be any problem, just genetic. If you never hand hair growing in any of those areas or if the hair was fine, small and light colored and recently turned darker or more coarse, this needs an evaluation by derm. ...Read more
Hi, i grow hair randomly. For example, i get lone whiskers under my chin, and in places on the side of face. Also, grow random hair on nipple. Why?
Sounds normal: I understand you're a teen and you are surely just getting your body hair. Chest hair starts on and around your nipples; your beard starts under your chin. Congratulations on your milestone, and the new joys and responsibilities that it promises. If dad's a reasonable guy, maybe you can talk with him about this stuff -- i bet he'd like to. ...Read more

Probable lice.: Hello. Actually the kind of bugs you're describing DO sound like lice, and they can cause scalp itching. There are several non-prescription products available such as permethrin that can be applied, followed by combing out the eggs with a nit comb.
