Pubic lice are a form of lice that infest the hair in the pubic region. They are thought of as being a sexually transmitted disease and are transmitted through direct physical contact. Symptoms include itching in the pubic area, visible nits or crawling lice, redness, and black spots on the underwear. Treatment options include medicated shampoos, herbal remedies, homoeopathy, and washing bedding and linen in hot water to kill the lice.
