Difficult to answer: Well, if someone truly does not have crabs then that person cannot give crabs to someone else. However, if that person is not telling the truth and actually has crabs then certainly it can be spread to others.

Sure,: She may say she doesn't think she has them, but indeed may have these little critters! if so, she can pass them onto you!
