I think I have crabs! What should I do?


 
I've found tiny white little things in my pubic hair and I also have other symptoms of crabs, but I'm too scared to tell anyone! Who should I tell first? Help!
 
First thing’s first: We know it’s embarrassing, but you really ought to tell your mom. You should go to your physician or gynecologist ASAP to see if the symptoms you’re experiencing really are crabs, and to have a treatment prescribed. Treatment for crabs usually consists of medication, either prescription or over-the-counter. You’ll also need to wash all of your bedding, towels and recently worn clothes in hot water. Trust us, life is just easier when Mom knows what’s going on.
 
Crabs (or pubic lice) are typically considered to be a sexually transmitted disease, or STD. The lice are most often transferred from body to body during sexual contact, but they can also be acquired by sharing already infected bedding, towels or clothes.
 
They usually cause intense itching, most often at night. You might be able to see grayish-white insects in your pubic hair, or the pinhead-sized nits clinging to the hair. You can pick up a nit comb at any drugstore to remove the nits. You might also see bluish-gray marks on your private parts and  thighs from the bites lice leave.
 
Bottom line? Tell mom your suspicions and get yourself to the doc immediately, babe. Whether it’s crabs or not, you need to get this sitch taken care of.

Exercising isn’t your thing? Start small by working out once a week and gradually get more active. You’ll be surprised how quickly it will become a habit.
