Body Lice

Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 02 May 2022

Body lice are little pests which live and lay nits on apparel. Body lice are one of the 3 types of lice that live on humans. Each type of lice is different, and getting one type does not mean that you will get another type. Body lice can spread out diseases, such as typhus, trench fever, and relapsing fever. Body lice is most common in people who can not wash and wash their clothing consistently, specifically if they reside in congested problems. In other nations, body lice can impact evacuees and victims of war or natural disasters. Body louse eggs are small, oval-shaped and white. Lice lay their eggs in the seams of any garments worn beside the skin, such as undergarments. The female body louse lives for around four weeks and lays roughly eight eggs daily. Without a continuous source of blood a louse will die within two to five days. Mature lice endure by feeding on human blood and live solely inside clothing. The characteristics of a body louse bite include: A tiny red dot at first appears. In close quarters, a few of the body lice from someone can creep throughout to the next individual. Body lice stay in your clothes and bed linen and travel to your skin numerous times a day to feed on blood. Body lice bites can spread out specific types of diseases and can even cause epidemics. Body lice bites can cause extreme itching, and you may see small areas of blood and crust on your skin at the website of the bite marks. See your physician if improved hygiene doesn't eliminate the invasion, or if you develop a skin infection from the ground up the bites.
