Crabs are easy to recognize given their characteristic appearance (a crab – see the lifecycle section). They are best observed under the microscope. Your physician may remove a crab from its home at the base of a hair and place it on a microscope slide – the beast is then drowned with a drop of immersion oil (used for microscope procedures). The pregnant female is quite impressive!
When crabs or scabies are diagnosed as a sexually transmitted disease, a complete STI screening examination should be considered.
