Itchy Penis: Will Shaving Cure Pubic Lice?

Posted by John Dugan on Wednesday, November 28, 2018, In : Men's Health 

Pubic lice. Crabs. Genital parasites. Whatever one calls them, they all mean one thing: an embarrassingly itchy penis that necessitates refraining from sexual congress. As penis health issues go, pubic lice are more of a n annoyance than a crisis. Aside from the itchy penis, they may bring about a fever and a feeling of fatigue; and as with any itch situation, scratching too much and too intensely can result in an infection.
