2. Body Lice

Because we are hairless, lice can find it harder to live on our bodies as they have less protection. Regardless, some people will still have problems with body lice. Instead of living on the body, they tend to live in our clothes and bedding instead, only to move to the body when they are in need of a meal of fresh, warm blood.

Body lice are not as common as head lice are and they tend to be found only in people that are unable to keep themselves and their clothing clean. This includes the elderly, the sick, the homeless, and people with certain mental health conditions.
