Getting rid of Crabs

Patient

Q: Hey, I been having unprotected sex for awhile now with one person and think I may have come across the STD (crabs). Reason I think this is because my genital area itches bad and feels like something is crawling on me. Especially at night while im sleeping. At first I thought it was Jock itch but there is no rash or anything. And here and there I find like white puffs (maybe one or two) that I thought were dandruff but don't move when I try and swipe air by the area to make it fall of. And I recently just shaved which kind of made the itching worst. But im not sure that I have them or not because I haven't went to get checked. Reason being is because my work schedule is VERY busy. So I bought RID. Is this a good product to use?
