What Is Pubic Lice?
Pubic lice is transmittable by human contact. I personally have a friend who has dealt with this problem before. A few years back I had a friend who once caught pubic lice from his girlfriends. It started off with just a few bites here and there. The next night it got worse and he was constantly scratching his bottom. He scratched so much that lesions started to form. He did not know what he was dealing with and neither did I. He started to explain to me how he thought he might have caught this from his girlfriend. He told me he couldn’t sleep at night because the biting would get so intense. I wasn’t sure myself, so I suggest for him to examine himself carefully.

He was literally spending most of his days trying to pick at those little creatures and scratching his skin open making sores. Sure enough, he found some pubic lice which are also called crabs because of their body shape. He put some of them in a jar and went to get himself a magnifying glass and then called. The next day, he stopped by my house and showed me some samples of the actually pubic lice, (Gross!). After carefully looking at those pubic lice, I saw how they actually look like crabs.
Pubic Lice Experience
Well, the first thing my friend and I did together was start googling to see what kind of hideous parasites he is dealing with. Sure enough, when we typed “insects in pubic areas” the word pubic lice started to pop up. We clicked on one of the links and found some sample pictures of pubic lice that looked exactly like what he had in the jar that he was holding. I advised him, he better hurry up and go to the Doctor. As soon as he walked out, I started grabbing all kind of disinfectant sprays and started spraying down everything he touched. I started washing all of my linens that he came in contact with. I love my friend, but I don’t think, I wanted to catch crabs from him. I would rather be safe than sorry. Luckily, my friend, responded well to the treatment the doctor prescribed for him and he got rid of his pubic lice. He came to find out later how toxic those medications were to his body. He just couldn’t believed that the Doctor would prescribe those pesticide to people. Those creams mentioned are forms of PESTICIDES used on insects. They are extremely deadly to lice and are very harmful to human at the same time. Most of your common lice products contain Pyrethum and Lindane. These two are extremely toxic. Side effects include neurological problems, nasal stuffiness, headaches, loss of coordination, tremors, convulsion, asthmatic breathing, swelling, burning, and itching.
At that time, we didn’t know about alternative non-toxic pubic lice treatments. We later found out that there are many alternative non-toxic lice treatments that are completely safe to use on your body without side effects. Q-Based provides an All Stop pubic lice treatment that is completely non-toxic. My friend just wished that I would have worked for Q-Based during that time so he could try our products. I didn’t get to help my friend with All stop, but at least I have helped so many others with pubic lice and eliminating them with a safe and non-toxic pubic lice treatment that can be used on anyone including children and infants.

Permethrin Cream is toxic by nature. The toxic permethrin cream has been proven to have nuerotoxic effects and can even cause tumors and cancer. Studies with permethrin cream and labs rats have resulted in lung tumors, cancer and death. An over-exposure to permethrin cream can be crucially damaging to your health.
It’s important to know this fact now, before you use this toxic permethrin cream that doctors still prescribe and pharmacies still sell when eradicating insects and mites. Permethrin Cream is a proven mitacide and will kill scabies, head lice, body lice, pubic lice and other parasites and insects. There’s no denying the fact it will kill insects and mites — but at what cost? Is the sacrafice of your good health and peace of mind worth a quick solution to the problem. We don’t think so, and I’m sure you don’t either. Check out what the we found the EPA and over governing agencies reported on Permethrin cream toxicity and safety hazards below
“Permethrin acts as neurotoxin, slowing down the nervous system through binding to sodium channels. This action is negatively correlated to temperature, thus generally showing more acute effects on cold-blooded animals (insects, fish, frogs…) over warm-blooded animals (mammals and birds):
permethrin is extremely toxic to fish and aquatic life in general so extreme care must be taken when using products containing permethrin near water sources
permethrin is also highly toxic to cats and flea and tick repellent formulas intended and labeled for (the more resistant) dogs may contain permethrin and cause feline permethrin toxicosis in cats
very high doses will have tangible neurotoxic effects on mammals and birds, including human beings.
Permethrin does not present any notable genotoxicity or immunotoxicity in humans and farm animals.
Permethrin is classified by the US EPA a likely human carcinogen, based on reproducible studies in which mice fed permethrin developed liver and lung tumors Carcinogenic action in nasal mucosal cells for inhalation exposure is suspected due to observed genotoxicity in human tissue samples, and in rat livers the evidence of increased preneoplastic lesions lends concern over oral exposure
Recent studies have linked permethrin exposure to Parkinson’s disease, including very small (per kg.) exposures: « Our studies have documented low-dose effects of permethrin, doses below one-one thousandth of a lethal dose for a mouse, with effects on those brain pathways involved in Parkinson’s Disease [...] We have found effects consistent with a pre-parkinsonsian condition, but not yet full-blown parkinsonism ».
Due to high toxicity for aquatic life, permethrin and permethrin-contaminated water should be properly disposed of. Degradation is quick and should the chemical be trashed far from any aquatic life, the negative effects would be minimized. Ideally, in a non-industrial context, the contaminant can be set in the light to induce photodegradation. Contaminated water set in direct sunlight exposure will be cleared of the permethrin and any known pollutant subproducts after a few hours.
Recently, in South Africa, residues of permethrin were found in breast milk, together with DDT, in an area that experienced DDT treatment for malaria control, as well as the use of pyrethroids in small-scale agriculture.
The use of the substance has been restricted by the US government, although such restriction is outdated now.”

Although you can get pubic lice from your partner, pubic lice is not a sexually transmitted disease. Pubic lice bugs are small parasites that are in the same species with head lice and body lice. You can get pubic lice from being around an infected person or their belongings for a long period of time. It is transferred by physical contact. You can also get them from staying in a hotel, motel or even at your friend’s house. Anyone can get pubic lice if you come in contact with the pesky lice bugs or eggs. They do not care about your gender, sex, nationality or social classification.
“What do pubic lice look like?” is a question that I am often asked. Pubic lice are very small but you can see them with the naked eye. They are shaped to look similar to a crab, that is how they got their nickname,”crabs”. You can check our pictures of pubic lice.
Another question that I am often asked is “What are the signs and symptoms of crabs?” Well just like having head lice, you can feel the crawling, biting and itching sensations. With pubic lice you will experience these symptoms around the genitals and anus. Because the itching with lice is so intense, people have been known to scratch so much they cause lesions and sores on the skin. Most people describe the experience with crabs as unbearable.
Some pubic lice prevention tips that you can use are as follows:
*Bring your own blanket and vinyl or plastic mattress cover with you when sleeping away from home.
*Don’t share anything, especially clothing with other people.
*Disinfect any public toilets or chairs before sitting on them.
