Tiny Bugs in Hair

Postby Loreen on Tue May 02, 2006 12:29 pm

I have been trying to get rid of bugs in my hair. I'm pretty sure they are too small to be lice. I've been using an 8x magnifier while wearing 3x glasses and I still can't make out what the bug looks like.

What would you suggest I use to see the bug so I know what I'm dealing with and how to treat it?

Hi

If you've already tried an 8x magnfuing glass, I would look into a
microscope such as the Meade 8300,
http://www.opticsplanet.com/meade-stere ... -8300.html which will
give you 20x or the LOMO SF50,
http://www.opticsplanet.com/lomo-sf-50-microscopes.html which will give you
50x. Also, please consult with a health specialist. There is always
something that can be done for this kind of problem, as I know of others who
have had it.

I have the same problem, they're too small to make out so I don't know how to treat it!!

Hi

If you can't afford a microscope, visit your doctor. It will be cheaper in the long run and more effective. Any health issue should receive immediate attention.

I looked at them under a microscope, but I still am not sure what they are. Aren't you supposed to be able to see headlice without a microscope?
