Importance of Cleaning your Environment when Dealing with Pubic Lice

It is not enough to treat only your body when you are affected with a case of Pubic Lice. If you do not also promptly and thoroughly treat your environment, you run the risk of re-infestation. Therefore, after treating your own body, wash all of your clothing and bedding in hot water and then dry them on high heat. Items that cannot be washed may be sprayed with a medicated spray or sealed (suffocated) in plastic bags and not used for 10 to 14 days.
