Patient :My boyfriend just called me and told me his doctor found a lice in his pubic hair. He says I should go get checked out for crabs. I had shaved 2 hours before we did anything, so I'm completely hairless down there. I know the lice need hair to grab onto. I don't have any symptoms and I don't see any eggs or the lice. So are the chances still high even though I was shaved and should I go get it checked out?
