Blood coagulation is prevented by injecting saliva. Pruritus is a disease caused by lice saliva entering the human circulatory system. The lice's saliva may trigger severe allergic reactions in some people, and the lice's sharp claws can cause itching and pain by moving through hair strands. Lice treatments (called pediculicides) are accessible without a prescription or over the counter. Shampoos, lotions, and cream rinses are among them.
