    Sounds like crabs. aka pubic lice. Tell her to go to the drug store, and get an over the counter pubic lice treatment. Any sexual partners she has should also do the same. She should also wash all towels and bedding, and use fresh ones until the treatment is finished, and the lice and their nits are gone.

    It's a good idea to go to the doctor once the treatment is done, to get tested for other STDs. Often, where there are crabs, there are other sexually transmitted problems, as well.

      Just so you know: the clap is a euphemism for gonorrhea, which is a totally different STD. Your friend probably has crabs.

    That sounds like pubic lice. She needs to talk to a doctor because if she has those, an STD is also likely.

      Crabs is very easy to catch especially if you use public bathrooms-doesn't always mean std. but treat yourself as well
