Dermatologist Dr. Gaurang Krishna's  Response
HI,
welcome to HCM
I think you are suffering from Pthiris Pubis ( Crabs).
I suggest you to shave off your pubic hair. That will take care of the infection. But consult your dermatologist before that.
You may also apply creams that are available to kill the lice after shaving hair. Talk to your dermatlogist regarding the same.
