Infestation with pediculushumanuscapitis (head louse ) is more commonly observed among population who live in an overcrowded and insanitary environment. Though pediculosis can occur in any age group, younger children are more frequently affected as they probably have more contact with other affected children in overcrowded houses and schools. This infestation adversely affects not only their health but also their curricular activities.
