Crabs & Scabies
What Is It?
Lice that live on pubic and other body hair (but not head hair)
They can be spread without sexual contact.
How You Could Get It
Sharing of linens and clothes
Itching in affected areas
Specks of blood on skin
Examination of pubic hair and any other areas that itch
Topical medicated lotion that can be bought without a prescription.
Sometimes eggs hatch 7-10 days later and another round of treatment is necessary.
Wash all your cloths and linens thoroughly.
When You Can Have Sex Again
Wait at least 10 days after treatment to make sure all crabs have been killed. Sometimes new eggs hatch about a week after the first treatment.
