|Home of How To Control Pubic Lice or Crabs.
Warning - Pubic or Crab Lice may be nasty, itchy and very contagious, but the pediculicide poisons sold to get rid of lice can be far worse.
Pubic or Crab Lice (Pthirus pubis) live only on the hairy portions of the body. Their legs are adapted to grasp hairs which are rather widely spaced, and for this reason, these lice prefer the pubic and perianal regions. However, they can occasionally be found in eyelashes, head and arm pit hair.
Appearance - This louse is easily differentiated from the head louse and body louse by the strong thick claws of the mid and hind legs, while the claws of the fore legs are long and fine. The body is broader than long, contrasting with both other species of Pediculus humanus.
Life cycle - The egg is slightly smaller than that of Pediculus and it is glued to a body hair with more cement. But, even this cement is removed by a Lice R Gone® shampoo. The egg hatches in 7 - 8 days. The three nymphal stages do not wander far from the hair, which is grasped with the tarsal claws. Several hours are usually taken to complete each bloodsucking meal. The nymphs become adults in from 13 - 17 days and it seems probable that the length of adult life is not more than one month. Fewer eggs are laid than Pediculus. Crab lice usually die within 24 hours if separated from their host. This short survival and their sluggish movement inhibit the spread of crab lice, except through intimate (sexual) personal contact or in extremely crowded living and sleeping conditions where they can and do spread readily. Crab lice may be (but rarely are) spread by nits on loose hairs left on bedding, towels and toilets by infested persons.
Least-Toxic Crab or Pubic Lice Control
1. If your pubic area itches, seek diagnosis immediately; there is no reason to suffer unnecessarily. Moreover, if you wait, you may needlessly infect others. Note, however, that simple itching does not necessarily indicate pubic lice - there are other causes of itching in this area, including heat.
2. If pubic lice or crabs are diagnosed, wash bedding and clothing in diluted Safe Solutions enzyme cleaner with peppermint and/or borax and/or place them in a hot clothes dryer. If you apply an insecticide poison to your pubic area (very dangerous) do so only as a last resort. Simply going into a sauna or shaving the affected area and then washing the skin vigorously each day with plain old hot soapy water or salt water will usually eliminate the lice but not the nits.So, it would be our suggestion that Lice R Gone® Shampoo with peppermint should be used because Lice R Gone® shampoo will safely and far more effectively remove both lice and nits in 10 -15 minutes..
3. Pediculicide POISONS do not remove nits or resistant lice and are dangerous. Among the reactions to poison shampoo or lice "treatments" are autism, seizures, mental retardation, many different allergies and respiratory problems, strange tingling, burning, itching, attention deficit disorders, brain tumors, leukemia, cancer and even death. The Author of THE BEST CONTROL II and THE BUG STOPS HERE does not suggest the use/misuse of any volatile pediculicide poisons to try to control lice.
4. Make sure your sexual partner(s) are alerted to the problem, educated about the infestation, examined and treated, if necessary.
