Conditions with symptom: 'eggs'
Hi Sam, White eggs are alive, brown coloured eggs are dead. The adult lice are dark.
Hi, It's possible that you might have worms again. Did you take any medication the last time you had them? If so you can buy Ovex from the chemist or even in Tesco. Can you tell your mum or an older sister or auntie, and ask her to buy some for you? You will have to be careful to keep your hands clean all the time, and only use the same towel. If the itching gets bad at night, try to sprinkle some talc around your bottom as if you keep it dry and not moist around there it will make it more difficult for them to lay eggs. (if you have been sweating it would make it easier for them to lay eggs) Try to put a pair of gloves on in bed and then put them straight in the washing in the morning. Hope this helps!
The white eggs are dead ones - empty egg cases. The live eggs, those that will hatch into lice are a dark brown colour and will be close to the scalp. In a long term infestation it is believed that the lice will develope a changed colour to help them camoflage into the hair, as the different generations of lice hatch. Generally they range from a fairly transparent light brown to a dark brown/black. I find them most easily spotted after they have just fed as their abdomens show up as a dark spot.
Hi there My daughter had lice 10 days ago I found one big one and about ten little ones. Each day twice a day I have checked her hair I found eggs but the treatment said they kill eggs and after seven days if I found one it never changed colour. She has had 3 treatments. I haven't found anything alive in her hair. Tonight I checked and found a clear egg and one caramel coloured one down the hair shaft. I have searched and found nothing alive. I read that straightening can kill the lice. Is it possible the clear egg was one I missed in the ten days I have been checking?
you cant do it by your self you have to go to the doctors and you probally are hyginic make sure you scrubb undr your nails because thats is where the threadworm eggs live TELL YOUR MUM!
It's a strong possibility as worms seam to wake up at night time to come out of ur bum to lay eggs and they the fluid that comes from them makes u itch
Hi there! My 2 year old daughter has headline to the point where she has black eggs on every single hair follicle!! We live very clean and she hasn't started day care yet so I don't know how she got them! I've tried everything! Nit treatments, all Comb types.. Mind you she cries to the point where she will almost have a fit!! Tried pulling them out one by one.. Nothing is working... Help anyone?
just keep combing using conditioner & combing with a fine tooth comb. Do family's hair. Over a few weeks,about 3 x per week til u notice less eggs & nits. If kids @ sch,contact teachers,tell them,so that other parents can be informed.As there is no point u getting rid if they go bck 2school & get again. Good Luck!
Hi I think I have worms and asked my GP to give me some treatments and his answer was that I was imagining.... I am not sure what kind of worms they are but I regularly spit out which I think are eggs, they are like grains of coucous and quite smelly. Sometimes I feel something in the back of my throught and I manage to disloge a bunch of these stuck together. I often cough and wheeze as well and have abdominal pains. What treatment should I take to get rid of this?
Sounds like you have a throat infection and what you are spiiting out is pus.
Hi, i know exactly what you have; tonsil stones. Google it and look at pictures. I get them all the time.
