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. ...Read more

Yeast infection: Typically, when there's itching it can be due to a yeast infection. Discharge that's brown is typically old menstrual blood. You can see a doctor or clinic and get an exam to test for yeast. If the brown discharge is bothering you, that is, if it's lasting for more than a few days, then you might want to consider some hormones to help regulate your cycle so that you don't have as much spotting. ...Read more

That may be a sign: May be a sign from beyond. A sign that there is no real need nor any mandate to shave pubic hair. The more people who shave their pubic hair, the more pressure there will be upon other people to also shave their pubic hair (and lead to more cases of ingrown hairs and itchy pubises). Since there is nothing inherently abnormal about pubic hair, there is no reason to shave it off. It's just fashion. ...Read more

Infected gland: There are numerous glands at the vaginal entrance. These glands secrete fluid that helps lubricate the vagina. Sometimes the openings of these glands become obstructed, causing fluid to back up into the gland. At times, the fluid within the cyst may become infected. See your doctor to get it drained if needed and treated. ...Read more
