In brief: There is a cure

There is no immunization shot to prevent crabs.
But the creams are very effective. Why are you taking an enormous dose of folic acid????

In brief: Talk with your DR.

Pubic Lice (Phthirus pubis) can be treated with OTC product like Nix or Rid.
Other options are prescription medications like Malathion (kept on affected area for 8 to 12 hours); Invermectin (2 pills – may need to be repeated in 10 days); Lindane (if you have failed other treatments).
