Genital Lice Treatment

Genital lice spread via close contact with another person's body, often during sex. However, genital lice can spread through sharing clothes, towels or bedding. Genital lice do not spread sexually transmitted infections (STIs), but if a person has crabs, they may be advised to be tested for STIs as well.

After being infected with genital lice, symptoms may not appear for around five days to several weeks. The symptoms include:
  • Itching, inflammation or irritation in affected areas often made worse by scratching
  • Black powder or tiny blood spots on underwear or skin
  • Blue spots around affected areas from lice bites
The natural genital lice treatments are most often used to treat genital lice. It's recommended to apply the genital lice treatment to the whole body, including beard and moustache, pubic hair and hair near the anus because the lice can spread. Do not apply to the face, hair on the scalp, eyebrows or eyelashes. Avoid contact with the eyes - if contact occurs, thoroughly rinse the eyes with water. Make sure the skin is clean and dry before applying the treatment.

If symptoms persist after a second treatment, seek medical advice as genital lice can build up a resistance to a particular treatment. Not all people who have lice have symptoms, so it's important that you let others that have been in close contact with you know that they should examine themselves for genital lice.
