Caption: Human body lice. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of body lice (Pediculus humanus) clinging to a human hair. Body lice feed on human blood and cause intense itching. The itching provokes scratching, which can lead to scalp inflammation or dermatitis. Treatment is with medicated shampoo.
