Exams and Tests
To find out if your child has lice, the doctor will do a close
visual exam to look for live
lice or their eggs (nits) on the hair . The doctor may
also use a fine-toothed comb to help detect lice. He or she may need to look at the lice or eggs under a microscope to confirm the diagnosis.
