Head Lice or Pediculosis capitis is a common condition of children and caretakers that is caused by infestation of the hair and scalp by Pediculus humanus capitis (the head louse). Head lice transmission occurs by direct contact, commonly by sharing  hair brushes, or hair accessories. Typical outbreaks occur in nursing homes, daycares, or schools. It is not unusual to have an entire family unit affected by Lice, due to the close living quarters. 

Pruritus occurs as an allergic reaction to lice saliva injected during feeding. Nits are also visible on the scalp and hair shaft.
