Pediculous – infested with lice 

 

In a sentence?

 

All of the campers in the cabin had to be checked for lice when one boy’s sleeping bag was discovered to be pediculous.

 

“They say pediculous humors and flyborne air are culprits of plague, so the townsmen make a pyre of flowers and brush, attar and spikenard, by way of purging the air of offense.”
