While less common than head lice, pubic lice and body lice can both cause irritation and
intense itching. This section shares what to look for and offers tips to get rid of both.
The process of getting rid of crabs is similar to the method for treating head lice. It’s
essential to thoroughly treat the infected area, including anal hairs and on the thigh.
Lice will spread to these surrounding areas, so complete treatment is necessary.
It’s also a good idea to treat infested sexual partners to reduce the chance of re-infestation.
Body lice and their eggs are generally found in the seams of clothing, particularly in the
waistline and armpit area. They move to the skin to feed and then return to the clothing’s seams where they lay their eggs.
Body lice treatment is similar to head or pubic lice treatment, with some minor but
important differences when it comes to treating clothing.
