Head lice are tiny parasitic insects that generally live on the scalp, where they hide in the hair, feed on blood, lay their eggs — and often cause severe itching.

They're most common in school-age children.

It's rare for a baby to have lice.

An infestation of head lice, called pediculosis, can be hard to get rid of, but lice are more a nuisance than a real health problem.
