It's difficult to determine exactly what type of bugs are in your hair without a proper examination. However, some common insects that may infest the hair and scalp include head lice, bed bugs, and mites.
Head lice are small, wingless insects that live on the scalp and feed on blood. They are highly contagious and can easily spread from person to person through close contact. Symptoms of head lice infestation include itching, redness, and small white or yellowish eggs (nits) attached to the hair shaft.
Bed bugs are small, oval-shaped insects that typically feed on human blood during the night. While they don't typically infest the hair and scalp, they can bite exposed skin around the head and neck, causing itchy, red welts.
Mites are tiny, eight-legged insects that live on the skin and hair follicles of humans and animals. Some species of mites can cause skin irritation and itching, while others may be harmless.
If you suspect that you have an infestation of insects in your hair and scalp, it's important to seek medical attention from a healthcare provider or dermatologist. They can properly diagnose the problem and recommend the appropriate treatment, which may include medicated shampoos, topical creams, or prescription medications.
