Eggs of louses – nits – left on a hairbrush, with ease get into hair of the healthy person where, turning into an adult individual, begin active reproduction.

The pediculosis is shown by an intensive itch, and in the started cases – damage of skin, hair bulbs, an inflammation of lymph nodes in ears and a neck. In hairdressing salons the disease is transmitted through tools which by rules have to be exposed to disinfection after each use, and also through the remains of hair sheared and not removed in time.

However as the most frequent display of an infection serves the pyoderma – purulent damage of skin.
