Pediculosis pubis also known as " crabs " and " pubic lice " [1] is a disease caused by the pubic louse , Pthirus pubis , a parasitic insect notorious for infesting human pubic hair. The species may also live on other areas with hair, including the eyelashes , causing pediculosis ciliaris. Infestation usually leads to intense itching in the pubic area. Treatment with topic agents such as permethrin or pyrethrin with piperonyl butoxide is effective. The main symptom is itching , usually in the pubic-hair area, resulting from hypersensitivity to louse saliva, which can become stronger over two or more weeks following initial infestation. Pubic lice are usually acquired by sexual activity.
