    Damn it! That seriously blows!
    And yes, Caught them once in college from this hot, grungy, hippie boy I used to screw around with... Personally, I washed everything I owned, clothes, towels, etc, about eight hundred times, etc...

    The bigger question though, is where does this itchy situation put you & the bf?

    baldone, Be sure to use that medication on your entire body including your scalp and facial hair, not just on your crotch. It goes EVERYWHERE on your body except in your eyes.

    A close friend of mine and another female caught the crabs while we were out in the field. The female latrine was apparently contaminated. That is an awful thing.

    With that said, does the other guy know about this and is there still a future between you?

    ok, i got them from a sex buddy i once had so i can relate to how you feel. i never called the guy back again. he tried to act as if he got it at the gym. i was like whatever dude. anyhow, my situation is totally different from yours so you have to decide if this is the guy you want to still be with.

    You mean humans dear, humans are shit, not just men.
    And if people are embarrassed of crabs, why tell the world you have them?

    Yes, it is a big bother and embarrassing, but you could catch worse.

    Crabs are bugs and Rid is an insecticide. It is pretty straightforward. Follow directions completely. The stuff will make your skin feel wierd, but you will get over it.

    It is possible that they guy did not know he had them because crabs take a couple of days to become evident. That could mean that he has been hanging out with somebody who is not careful about other things. It would probably be a good idea to get checked out.

    Sorry, but life just isn't fair!

    yourname2000 saidOh man...yeah, I've had crabs. Gives me the heebe-jeebies just thinking about it.

    I was 19 and slept with this crazy hot 35yo guy....few days later I have crabs. Call him "wasn't me....maybe you got them at the gym", etc. Okay, so I get Kwellada lotion and got rid of them (took a while....lots of Kwellada...wash everything....wash it again...wash it again.)

    So they're gone and hot guy is still crazy hot so we fuck again....and damn it if the fucking fucker didn't fucking give me fucking crabs AGAIN! (So he's off "the list" now, at least.) Well, I'd now had crabs on and off for over a month...and then parasitophobia kicked in BIG TIME! --I felt like my skin was on fire and I was feeling bugs crawling on me everywhere, all the time.

    To get rid of them the second time, I shaved my entire body (except head) and still Kwellada'd the shit out of myself, head to toe. And washed everything in the house daily and put the dried clothing in plastic sealed bags.

    The parasitophobia lasted a lot longer than the crabs. Damn I hate those things. Get rid of them quick --you don't want parasitophobia. You'll have to wash everything repeatedly. When you think they're gone, keep up the treatment for a week or two more because the lotions only kill the adults --not their eggs, so you need the eggs to hatch so you can kill those fuckers before they get a chance to lay more eggs.

    Then I want you to get a knife, find that guy, and --with your stabby hand-- you stab him...and stab him...and stab him again. And when the police come, you say "Dave told me to".like this one the best and hell no, no future..deleted him this morning.....used rid last night and am on last load of hot water washing
    right now....no itching today....rid says to apply again in 7 days

    Hello baldone

    I am sorry about your predicament. Everything that is said here will get rid of the Crabs (sometimes referred to As Butterflies of Love) for you. Some advice have gone way OTT just to be sure I would say. Crabs need to suck blood to survive and lay there eggs in the Hair Folicles. To my knowledge most modern nit lotions will also kill the eggs off. I am thinking of a product on the market here called Prio Derm. One or two applications as directed in the packaging is all that you will need. The normal washing of bed linne, towels etc is all that is needed as a precaution. But to avoid any phobia which might set in I would refrain from close contact of all your porivate hairy bits with anyone else for at least 10/Days.

    I should think you have had a great shock and worry with this discovery. I take it that you have only been with your B.F. which will strengthen your case when you explain to him that you are suspicious or perfectly sure that your infestation has come from him. Now I would expect your B.F to be very honest with you and explain to you how he may have got infested.

    I hope it all works out well for you both whichever way. But all the better if you both are able to put this behind you and start afresh again with a new committment to long lasting love. Life or relationships are never perfect.

    Regards

    Sorry to hear about this. Especially it's coming from a guy whom you thought was it...

    A few people in my close circle of gay friends have had crabs before so don't be too embarrassed if you've gotten them.

    Best of luck to your road of recovery.

    Crabs don't negate any of that. Maybe he screwed around with a guy a few weeks before he met you . . . or before he understand that the two of you might be serious. . . . It's not necessarily damning, so I hope you'll give him a chance to explain.

    Okay, this is a true story:

    Years ago, 1995, I was living in Houston and dating this guy I loved, named Michael. I never would have cheated on Michael. (His skin was the color of cream with just a drop or two of coffee added.) And I did not, in fact, cheat on him.

    One night I was walking down the street in downtown Houston, and this homeless guy came up to me, and asked me for some change. Well, I gave him some change. This guy grabs my hand and shakes it; he's real happy. Then he walks off.

    Well: I got crabs, gave them to Michael. Yuck.

    But here's the thing: I told Michael what happened, and Michael believed me. Chose to believe me. That meant a heck of a lot to me. It made our relationship much stronger.

    So you know . . . crisis is an opportunity to know each other better, form a deeper bond. I hope (if you really like this guy) that's what happens.
