Diagnosis of hair lice
There are proper professionals who are certified in treating hair lice. But before the step of treatment comes the step of diagnosis. So how do the professionals diagnose whether a person has hair lice or not? Well we shall discuss this very thing in this article below.
Head lice can be found by carefully inspecting the scalp and hair for nits, nymphs, or adults. It can be difficult to identify a nymph or adult because there are generally only just some of them and then they can move swiftly from seeking fingers. The appearance of nits near to the scalp, on the other hand, indicates that an individual is infected. If the nits seem to be more than 14 inches from the scalp, the infestation is most likely ancient. If you are unsure whether such a person has head lice, a medical professional, school nurse, or professional from the county health department or agricultural extension office should make the diagnosis. However, if you observe under a microscope, even an ordinary one, you can clearly see that the nits are visible from it.
Head lice can be very problematic for people and especially for the kids who go to school daily. In some institutions there is a strict policy regarding hair lice in which no student would be allowed to enter the school premises who has hair lice.
