Can Someone Have Lice Without Realizing It?
Even Without Itching?
It is possible to have had head lice for an extended amount of time without ever even realizing that your head is carrying them around. About 50% of the population infested with lice never even feels itchy.
Generally speaking, by the time someone identifies they have head lice, they've had it for 2-3 weeks already.
Symptoms of Lice
Some symptoms of head lice are:
- low-grade fever
- bags under the eyes
- swollen glands
- rash at the nape of the neck
- falling asleep after a good night's sleep
Weird Fun Fact:
Head lice are nocturnal, they become more active at night than during the day. Therefore the saying, "a lousy night's sleep."
