`THanks for reading this post.

For the last couple of weeks i've been having an annoying pubic itch - it seems to come and go in waves.

I didnt think anything of it, thought it would go away, but now two weeks have past and it is getting annoying/worrying.

For a number of reasons I don't think it is public lice, though I guess its not impossible, - let me take you through some facts.

Visually there are no sign of lice, nor of the effects of lice (no discolorisation of skin or the lice themselves).

There are however maybe 6 small red spots - these are definitely where the itch is worst.

I am also experiencing some itching elsewhere - a little on my head, and a little on across my body as a whole (legs, arms, torso). Howver the pubic area is easily the worst.

Is there any option other than pubic lice? COuld it be bed bugs? Fleas? NOne of the above? NOn-parasitic?

Any help and thoughts much appreciated - thanks.
