Contagious skin diseases.

Forewarned Is Forearmed!

We would like to forewarn are readers of some contagious skin diseases which exist, to avoid any possible complication in your life.

Animal Parasitic Infection

Animal parasite is a highly contagious skin disease caused by the itch mite (lice). The lice feed from the scalp, itching occurs and resultant scratching can cause an infection. Lice is transmitted from one person to another by contact with infested hats, comb, brushes or other personal articles. Lice will then die after 7 days if not on scalp. Lice live of heat from scalp. Head lice do not fly or jump but run very quickly. Nits are tiny yellow white eggs of lice. Nits and dandruff might look similar (white particles) but dandruff is easily removed by the touch as to nits stick to the hair shaft close to the scalp (for heat). They are very difficult to remove and must be scraped off with your nail or a special small tooth comb.

Special shampoos must be used to kill the Lice and Nits and must then be completely removed from the hair and scalp with the special tooth comb. Warm vinegar is also great to remove these parasites. Disinfecting all personal items that have been in contact is a Must – for example: pillows, clothing, etc


This kind of hair disease is caused by vegetable parasites. All forms are contagious and can be transmitted from one person to another . It is a fungus, and can also be transmitted by bathtubs, swimming pools and non-sanitized articles. Ringworms start with a small redden patch of little blisters. Several such patches may be present. The hair will eventually break off leaving bald patches. It is very contagious!
