Why Is My Head So Itchy?

Q:
Why is my head so itchy?

A:
Itchy head is usually a common sign of head lice. Head lice are tiny insects that feed on blood from the human scalp. Itching on the scalp, neck and head is the most common symptom. A head lice infestation isn’t a sign of poor personal hygiene or an unclean living environment, but head lice can be easily transmitted in the following ways:

  • Hats and gloves
  • Brushes and combs
  • Headphones
  • Pillows
  • Towels
  • Pets

Therefore, avoid sharing products with others is an effective way of preventing head lice.
