It’s best to preform a visual inspection every few weeks for eggs (called nits), in the hair. The nits are laid near the base of the scalp and have a glue that attaches them to the hair strand. If you see very small, tan or yellowish colored specks that do not move when the head is shaken or rustled it is likely you are most likely dealing with nits. Lice Clinics of Canada – Ontario in Kitchener offers head checks if you are unsure. Scratching and itching on the head can take four to five weeks to start and some people don’t scratch at all! After eggs hatch and grow into adult lice they leave traces of fecal matter and saliva that irritate the skin causing red rashes that itch. Lice also feed off human blood and their bites can also cause itchiness.
