These are two unpleasant body infections that cause itchiness. Head lice is an infection of the head hair, caused by tiny insects, while scabies is a contagious infestation caused by mites that lay eggs in the skin.
While mostly harmless, head lice can cause an itchy scalp and a rash on the back of the neck, and be frustrating to deal with. It can affect many people, especially young children just starting school. Scabies is a common condition, which anyone can get. It involves a rash that turns to red spots, usually spreading across the whole body, except the head.
