Human : Human pubic lice or "crabs" are typically very small but can be seen attached to the pubic hair and may have a characteristic bluish-gray color around the area. They skin can become a bit red and itchy and may develop some white flakes. They are spread from sexual contact. I would see a dermatologist so that they can differentiate between crabs and other common conditions that can occur in that area such as eczema, psoriasis, etc.
