dear bugman
please help me! i found this one bug in my hair and i when i pulled it out, it was under my fingernail, so i think it is a little squished. it was also dead and not moving.
a couple weeks ago, a girl at my school had lice. i became paranoid and had my parents check my head. they found nothing. i thought i was safe until now.
after finding this, i had my mom check my head and she found nothing. i compaired it to pictures of lice online and it looks similar, but not exactly the same. i havent found pictures that look like this yet, but it has similar feautures to lice. i also sent it to my friend who had lice for over a year, and he said its not one.
my head hasn’t been abnormally itchy and i have no bumps or bites on my neck shoulders or head. please help me asap and tell if this is a louse and what i should do!!
one pic is zoomed in, one is not.

Head Louse

Head Louse

Dear Tannith,
We are sorry to be the bearer of bad news on Thanksgiving, but this is indeed a Head Louse.  There are over the counter remedies available at the pharmacy.

i only found one bug in my hair. there are no other bugs in my hair or eggs. is it possible that i just had one bug and no more?

That is a possibility, but in our opinion, it is unlikely.
