Crabs Symptoms Treatment and Remedies

Updated on August 1, 2015

Crabs Symptoms

Crabs is a very common sexually transmitted disease and it transferred from partner to partner extremely easy. The main sign that you may have crab lice is intense itching of the pubic area. You can also see them while bathing once you are infested.

They are transferred from partner to partner during sexual contact, where the lice will simply crawl from one person the next. There are male and female lice and they will mate and lay eggs. So the sooner you get to a Doctor for treatment the better.

Crab lice will also infest clothing, sheets, even upholstery. You can also get crabs on the face from in the eyebrows, eyelashes, scalp, chest hair, and face.

Crabs Treatment

To treat the STD crabs you can get a cream prescribed by your Doctor. You can also purchase over the counter creams and shampoos that will kill the lice. You can even use home remedies like mayonnaise or tree oil.

You also want to make sure to wash any sheets, blankets, pillows, or comforters you could have been in contact with. You can put them in a tightly sealed trash bag for about a month and this will kill the lice due to having no blood or skin to live on.
