I Have Head Lice—Is My Life Over?
There’s a lot of social pressure growing up in the 21st century.
With social media bombarding images of a perfect life, everyone—rich or poor, old and young—has a hard time keeping up with the Joneses.
From health and fitness to employment and relationships, we work hard to be better than our neighbors, friends and colleagues.
In many ways, all the things that are meant to bring us closer, end up tearing us apart as we hide our imperfections and compete to be the best.
At the end of the day, we’re only human, trying in vain to follow impossible social standards. We all make mistakes, we all have embarrassing moments, we all sweat and bleed—and yes, we all get head lice.
Are Head Lice Dangerous?
Head lice isn’t any different from the common cold. It’s incredibly contagious, annoying and socially alienating—but we survive it every single time.
Unlike the common cold, however, lice get a bad rap because the idea of tiny bugs mating in our heads seems gross. This creates the misconception that it’s caused by poor physical hygiene, which couldn’t be further from the truth.
Similar to the common cold (or any kind of viral disease), head lice spread and attack very much like bacteria. They divide and multiply like a virus, until you’re compelled to seek treatment.
So, why do we insist on treating lice victims as social outcasts?
Separating Fact from Fiction
If you’re suffering from low confidence due to a sudden an unexpected case of lice infestation, consider yourself one of 12 million people around the world who go through the ordeal every year. These include kids as young as 4 year olds to adults as old as 60.
You see, lice don’t have a preference for race, age or gender. They simply seek a human host with a head full of hair and feed until they’ve had their fill.
Similar to a flu infection, you may have to practice safe distance from other people to avoid giving them the bug, and resort to pesticide free treatment for a swift and chemical-free recovery.
Unlike most anti viral meds infections, at no point during the infestation will you feel weak, tired, fatigued, physically sick or unwell. The effects are purely psychological, minus the occasional skin bumps caused by a possible allergic reaction.
