Protecting others - if you have an infestation, refrain from sexual activity until your treatment is completed successfully. 

Sexual partners - the fewer sexual partners you have, the lower the risk will be of becoming infected with STIs generally, including pubic lice. 

Regular check-ups - regular check-ups can reduce the risk for all STIs. 

Condoms - although condoms will not protect you from pubic lice, they will help protect you from other STIs. 

Sharing items - if you have an infestation, do not share your bedding, clothing, towels and closet with other members of your household. 

Other members of the household - if one person has an infestation, treat everyone in that household for pubic lice as a precaution.
