Thank you
Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 months ago.

I am sorry you have had these infections.

that is good you got the premethrin cream and bombed your house.

how did you contract crabs? did you get it from a sexual partner?

A lice-killing lotion containing 1% permethrin or a mousse containing pyrethrins and piperonyl butoxide can be used to treat pubic ("crab") lice. These products are available over-the-counter without a prescription at a local drug store or pharmacy

I'm aware of that I stayed in a hotel in New Orleans for JazzFest and I'm celibate the sheets is all I can think of never staying there again
Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 months ago.

I see.

you should also check for bed bugs in your bed and your clothes

bed bugs can be spread from hotels in warm areas.

bed bugs feed on dead skin cells

you have to wash all of your clothes and bedding in hot water and check your bed and mattress seams for bed bugs.

check your luggage as well.

I'm about to just buy another mattress I'm done and tired so I'm going to bomb it again then retreat myself
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Did that
Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 months ago.

you may need to bomb again if you find more bugs.

you may need to call an exterminator to help

you can kill bed bugs by heating up your home up to 100 degrees with heaters in your home

getting new mattress is an option as well if you find them in your mattress.

washing all of your clothes in hot hot water can kill bugs in your clothes

Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 months ago.

you should check your car and appolstry in your car and see if you have anything in the car.

it sounds like you should consult with an exterminator to help
