Paduchii de cap sunt insecte mici, fara aripi, de culoare galbena pana la maro, care traiesc exclusiv in par si se hranesc cu sange. Un paduche
adult ajunge la dimensiunea de 3-4 mm lungime.
Femela produce, pe perioada vietii, între 200 si 300 de oua, cunoscute si sub denumirea de lindeni, care au dimensiuni mici si o forma ovala . Acestea
adera puternic la firul de par printr-o substanta puternic adeziva.Ouale eclozeaza dupa sapte zile si insecta ajunge la maturitate în 10 zile.Cand sug sangele, paduchii isi injecteaza saliva în scalp, generand o reactie de hipersensibilitate, insotita de mancarimi si iritatii severe.

Paduchii se raspandesc foarte usor de la o persoana la alta, tocmai de aceea se intampla ca cei mici sa vina acasa de la gradinita sau de la scoala acuzand mancarimi ale scalpului. Asadar, paduchii se iau foarte usor, dar este foarte greu sa scapi de ei. Chiar si cei mai ingrijiti copii se pot alege cu paduchi, si nu este nicio rusine, pentru ca nu sunt un semn al lipsei igienei personale. Daca cel mic va face paduchi, este posibil ca toata familia sa se pricopseasca cu aceasta problema. Paduchii sunt insecte foarte mici care se hranesc cu sangele scalpului, iar primul semnal ar fi mancarimea resimtita la nivelul acestuia.
Sa nu credeti ca paduchii sar de la o persoana la alta, aceasta este doar o credinta populara. Ei se iau prin contact direct, depun oua si cam asta este totul. Aceasta senzatie de mancarime poate aparea si la cateva luni de la infestarea cu paduchi, insa alergia poate fi o problema destul de severa, pentru ca scalpul se poate inrosi. Puteti depista usor paduchii de cap, chiar si cu ochiul liber, iar ouale pe care le depun sunt de culoare alba, lipite de firele de par si, uneori, pot fi usor confundate cu matreata.

Head lice are wingless, small insects, varying in colour from yellow to brown, living exclusively in hair and feeding on blood. An adult louse may reach the size of 3-4 mm.
During its lifespan, the female louse produces between 200-300 eggs, known as nits, which are small and oval. These, cling strongly to hair trough a very sticky substance. The eggs take 7 days to hatch and after 10 days the insect is fully grown.While sucking on blood, the lice also inject their saliva in the scalp, which leads to hypersensitivity, accompanied by itching and severe irritation.

Lice spread easily from person to person, and so children may return home from kindergarten or school, complaining of itchy scalp. Therefore one can get lice very easily but getting rid of them is one hard task. Even the cleanest children may get lice and there is no shame in that, since they are not a sign of lack of personal hygiene. If the children get them it is very likely that soon they may spread to the whole family. Lice are very small insects which feed on scalp blood, so an itchy scalp represents one of the earliest signs.
Do not believe that lice jump from one person to another, as this is just a popular belief. One can get them by direct contact, afterwards they lay eggs and that’s about it. The itchy sensation may appear even several months after the lice infestation, but the allergy itself may cause the real problems as the scalp may turn red. Head lice are easy to detect, with the naked eye and the eggs they lay are of white colour, sticked on the hairs thus they can sometimes be easily mistaken for dandruff.
