Crabs (pubic lice)

Various kinds of lice affect humans. But the type that are associated with sex are pubic lice, which are easily transmitted from one person to another when two sets of pubic hair meet.

If you catch crabs from someone, you’ll find that you have intense itching in your pubic area. By looking carefully, you may be able to see the tiny greyish lice crawling around. They do look a bit like minute crabs.

How Can You Spot Crabs

It may be easier for you to spot the white eggs (nits) that stick to the hairs.
