Full Answer

Additionally, the Centers for Disease Control states that lice come in other forms, including body lice and pubic lice (crabs). If a bald man has any body hair, it is possible for him to contract lice in other areas of the body. Body lice typically live and lay eggs on clothing; however, they go on the skin to feed. Pubic lice or crabs generally spread through sexual contact and can be found in the hair of the pubic region as well as other body hair, including armpits, chest, mustache, beard, eyelashes and eyebrows.
