Pubic lice, commonly referred to as "crabs", are parasites (small insects) that have a particular preference for pubic hairs (where they establish themselves). Also known as pediculosis pubis or phthirus pubis, they may be found attached to the short hairs in other body regions (the anus, armpits, beard, eyebrow and eyelashes). They are cousins of head lice.
