Common symptoms

Common symptoms are itching in the genital area or any part of the body with hair. Lice symptoms can be divided into 2 types according to classification of crabs.

Pubic lice symptoms:

  • Itching is a general symptom for all types of lice. It usually happens around areas that are infected and in regions where there is hair. It might start a couple of weeks after you actually catch crabs.
  • Itching will begin at night when lice feed;
  • Red “bump” on the skin and area covered with hair;
  • Blue spots on skin;
  • Irritation and scratching;
  • Rash;
  • Inflammation in case you have eyelashes infected;
  • Brown spots on underwear;
  • Some people may not even notice that they have a problem with lice. This is due because they do not have any of the above mentioned symptoms. But you can still transmit crabs to other people.

Body lice symptoms:

  • Itching in various areas such as the armpits, groins or trunk;
  • Due to the fact that body lice mainly living are in clothing during the day; they then transfer to the skin at night to feed.
