Had lice once when I first went to school. Five years old.

Had a tick once last year in Bolivia. I found it on my leg. It was tiny and I just took it off, no problem.

I had bedbugs last year in Rio, in an apartment I was staying in.

Never had scabies.

Did you have to shave your head for the lice?

Does talking about bedbugs make you itch all over?

No, I used some shampoo stuff that smelled really bad a couple of times and then they were gone.

No, not at all.

Someone said mayonnaise is good for lice.

My hubby gets bedbug syndrome bad bad bad. He will start itching furiously all over his body, and I feel so bad for him.

Nope! Been bitten by mosquitos, though. I had a friend that had lice once though. Actually a couple friends.

My dog has fleas. Been fighting them for a couple of months, but can't seem to get rid of them.

Had ticks a few times. Used tweezers to pull them off, then flushed them.

Never had lice, but I worked at a preschool for a number of years, and the teachers would check each other every month or so, just to be sure. Just thinking about it makes my head itch.

Thankfully, no bedbugs.

I can recall two ticks on me after walks through meadows. I just pulled them off.

I've gotten lice twice before and I hated it so much
4 yrs ago - Sunday 11/16/14 - 3:59:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
Ticks, yes. There are a lot of meadows and fields where I live and I liked to explore as a child.

Lice, yes. I got it from other kids at school when I was a child. Two times.

And then fleas when I was younger and we had a dog.
But never bedbugs.

You don't have to be dirty. Pets bring in fleas. Skyfish's example shows you can get ticks just from walking in long grass and you can catch lice from anyone. Shampoo's can attract them.

I've had lice when I was in school and my mum used to foster cats in all kinds of conditions so fleas were an occasional problem.

Headlice sure. You just get the special shampoo and then use the fancy comb thing. When I was in School like when I was little yes. And again when a girl I was living with was doing placement at a primary school and it went through the kids who were about 6 years old and she caught it.

Flea's I've been bitten by, I've never "HAD" them, but I've been in houses which had a flea problem, and had to stay more than 1 night and broke out in giant bites everywhere.

Ticks never seen one in real life. Scabies I had to google, no never had that, bed bugs, been lucky, never stayed in a hotel with them.

Been bitten by fleas. Maybe a tick? I can't remember. That's it. Phew.

on Trail and otherwise: I had anal sex in the back of this guy's car last week and I came away with fleas. Must have let his dog in there one too many times...or just age, you know? Mites accumulate. I think that's what they were, mites. Not fleas. Fleas? That's ridiculous..

I had lice in kindergarten. So many kids in my class had them, they decided to cancel all the K classes for a couple of days.

Why is that?

Is there like, always one country boy's son in the class?

Or do lice like adhere to little kids?

It's such a standard outbreak I wonder.

Nobody else ever gets lice..
