Caption: Head louse life cycle. Diagram showing the life cycle of the human head louse (Pediculus humanus capitis). Adult female head lice lay between 80 to 100 eggs during their life. These hatch after a week and develop rapidly, with successive generations arising every three weeks. Adults live in the hair on the head and suck blood from the scalp, causing intense itching. The itching provokes scratching, which can lead to scalp inflammation, or dermatitis.
