Tests and Diagnosis of Head Lice
  • The diagnosis of lice is done by keenly observing the scalp. One has to carefully look into the hair, observing strands of hair to find the nits or adults and a magnifying glass will be of more help.
  • In severely infected cases the adult lice crawl on the hair of people which are clearly visible from a distance
  • Nits are usually located a quarter inch far from scalp and easily visible.
