Pubic lice, also known as crabs or pediculosis pubis, is an infestation by the pubic louse.[2][3] It most commonly occurs on pubic hair, though other large diameter hair such as armpit, beard, eyebrow, or eyelash may be involved.[4][5] The main symptom is itching in the groin area.[6] There may be grey-blue discolouration at the feeding site, blood stains, and crusts and eggs (nits) and live lice may be seen.[2][4] Complications may include a secondary bacterial infection as a result of scratching.[7]
