In the list of parasites are some insects, worms, among other organisms that depend on the benefits of other beings to live. Those that harbor parasites are called hosts. […]
Know that head lice are a type of parasite. They feed on the blood they suck from our heads. In the case of females, blood is also essential for the development of their eggs. When she deposits them in the strands of hair, the familiar nits cling until it's time for the egg to hatch. Then the cycle starts again. If pediculosis – that's what lice infestations are called – is not _________ resolved quickly, it can damage our health.
