  • i dont think so. i googled it

    Crabs is a sexually transmitted disease in which pubic lice infest the genital area of males or females, creating an itching sensation. Sometimes the public lice can be seen crawling in the pubic area.

  • No crabs are bigger but the same basic idea you also have to use a different kind of stuff to kill them....its harder to get rid of them too

  • I googled it too. I didn't read in detail, just the first couple of lines && saw where it said crabs && had pubic lice in parenthesis beside it. The first sentence of the article I found said "crabs" is the common term for lice found in the pubic hair of humans.

  • you can get lice whereever you have hair...crabs is in the pubic area...they are VERY similar...i think youd be hard pressed to find a huge difference!

  • You can also get crabs on your eyelashes. My uncle is an eye doctor and told us the time he had a patient in the chair and went to examine his eyes and saw the crabs crawling on his eye lashes. YUCK!!!! He asked the man to leave, closed the office and sanitized everything. I laugh just walking into the exam room now.
