I was told that a family member I was in contact with had gotten head lice, I immediatly did the treatment on myself and all over my house. I got checked after by a doctor and was told I had nothing in my hair, the same time I was told my family member got the lice AFTER their visit to me. After that I kept getting itchy scalp, I never had dandruff before, nor head lice so I was paranoid that I ruined my scalp. Creating a paranoia, I kept going to the doctor for them to check me over to see if there was any lice. All kept saying it was negative...I would come across yellowish "crusty"'s in my hair that would flake when I squished it between my thumb nails. Then I was told I did have a nit, SO I did another treatment. NOW my scalp has been itchier than ever..Got checked again and was told there was nothing in my hair...Then I went to see my own doctor to see if there was something I could do about the itch and he told me there were nits in my hair....I panicked! Came home and shaved my head! I get my husband to check daily, he hasn't seen a thing. My head is really itchy now....Can lice and psorisis be confused for the other?? I have such a phobia now, I feel like I bugs crawling all over me now!!!:confused:Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
