Lice: if both partners have been treated and cured then there is no possibility of spreading or catching pubic lice again from that partner. If one has intercourse with someone who has pubic lice even though you have been treated you will be reinfected.

To Catch A Louse...: Those pesky lice.Thank god roaches don't live on us!(yet)...If you use a strong cure(permethrin)it should kill most or all of the lice but maybe not all the eggs (nits). Usually one treatment works,but not always. You need to comb the hair with a fine comb then collect and throw away what comes out.Best to wait a week and keep checking or just hit them again with another dose.Clean all clothes,etc
