  • Pubic lice can spread faster while having physical contact, which is how most of the people in America have it, or else the number of infestations would be much less.
pubic lice dangers
Pubic Lice: Dangers

Pubic lice feed on blood by biting skin at the base of a hair follicle. They prevent clotting of the blood by an anticoagulant in their saliva. This along with other substances in the louse’s saliva is seen as foreign by the human immune system, resulting in a mild allergic reaction around the bite. While the itchy felling caused by the allergic reaction is more annoying than harmful, excessive itching can quickly damage the skin of the infested area.

  • Trichomoniasis is a bacteria because it is an infection caused by sexual contact.
  • This infection can even be in pregnant women, and because of this the baby may even be premature.

Trichomoniasis: Treatments
  • Trichomoniasis can be cured with a single dose of prescription antibiotic medication, pills which can be taken by mouth. It is okay for pregnant women to take this medication. Some people who drink alcohol within 24 hours after taking this kind of antibiotic can have uncomfortable side effects.
  • People who have been treated for trichomoniasis can get it again. About 1 in 5 people get infected again within 3 months after treatment. To avoid getting reinfected, make sure that all of your sex partners get treated too, and wait to have sex again until all of your symptoms go away (about a week).
