Post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP)
This infection is primarily transmitted through sexual relations with an infected partner – penetration is not required for transmission. Oral sex with a contaminated partner can lead to infestation of the eyebrows, eyelashes and/or scalp hair. Transmission may also occur via simple (non-sexual) contact with an infected individual or via indirect contact with contaminated objects (including clothing, bedding, towels and/or toiletries, etc.) This particular parasite can survive away from the human body (the host) for periods of up to 24 hours.
