A nauseating photos showing a man’s hairline crawling with thousands of head lice has been posted online.
The photos demonstrate what happens if an infestation is left untreated. The unidentified man’s hair seems to be alive as the parasites climb through it.
WHOAH! Can you look at that?!
The females lay eggs close to the root of the hair so they are kept warm by the scalp, and these hatch into more lice which breed and multiply.
All types of hair can be affected with head lice, regardless of its length and condition. Head lice cause a person’s scalp to itch if they are allergic to them. However, not everyone is allergic – and the lack of itchiness can mean the head lice go undetected and continue to multiply.
Even if someone with head lice is allergic to them, itching can take up to three months to develop.
That’s a very extreme case. He will have them in his eyebrows and his eyelashes – they will be falling down. That person’s scalp will be raw in places and infected. That will be running his system down like crazy. It’s a major job to get that out. It’s enough to make anyone feel itchy all over,” says Dee Wright, founder of London-based Hairforce which offers a specialised ‘Lice Assasins’ service.
This is by far the most disgusting head lice infestation you’ll ever see!
