Lice are small, wingless parasites which feed on the skin and blood of humans, as well as other mammals and birds. These insects inhabiting the head, pubic, and other body regions are easily spread through contact and can cause severe itching, and in some cases, may even lead to infection in the scalp or skin. There are three common types of lice, including head lice, body lice and pubic or "crab" lice.

Head lice are usually found in the hair, nape of the neck, or behind the ears.
