Here's an interesting question. Is it possible for head lice to be transferred to pubic hair? My girlfrend recently discovered she has gotten head-lice from working at her social welfare internship. About a week ago she performed oral sex on me, and I've been a little itchy down there. I figure we were just a little too rough and I'm chafing and chapping, but its still an interesting question.

Yes, it is. Really, lice are lice are lice, and thus many doctors simply call them "body lice."

So, you can check yourself, or have your partner help you check, pulling the pubic hair apart decently, part by part, and looking for the little leapers. Or, you can see your doctor.
