What is the Head Lice Life Cycle? Are head lice contagious?
Yes they are highly contagious. Getting head lice is not a social stigma. It is not a sign of uncleanliness or poor health habits, but it can be very upsetting and is definitely a nuisance. Head lice can occur at any age and to male or female at any time. Anyone who has close contact with an infested person is likely to be affected.
