I would get lice a lot as a kid. Our school never did lice checks. The first time I found out I had lice was in 3rd grade. My hair was super long, thick, and straight. Healthy but I had so many, I probably had them for years before that. My mom would treat them every time they came back but wouldn't follow the directions and with long breaks inbetween. It affected me a lot, still does. I'm in my late teens and I still itch my head. I feel like I still have lice but I checked myself. Putting on oil and combing through. I would do that for over an hour just pulling out dead skin, not eggs or lice I know how they look like. I even feel something crawling or sucking on my skin. Every time there's no lice on my head. It's driving my crazy. I take a shower every morning but I don't wash my hair over the weekend. I airdry my hair. I use aussie shampoo & conditioner. If it's a skin condition, it won't explain the crawling and sucking feeling. Maybe it's a mental thing?
