Lice

If you or someone in your family is infected with lice, you will be happy to know that this condition is very treatable. While there is no specific treatment for body lice, head and pubic lice require medical attention.

Dermatologists at Jefferson will ensure that you are properly diagnosed and effectively treated for lice. Our Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Biology specializes in the treatment of all types of skin disorders in adults as well as children, in a recently expanded pediatric dermatology section.
