Pediculus Humanus

Blood-sucking lice that cause intense pruritus with associated excoriations, commonly on scalp and neck (head lice), waistband and axilla (body lice), or pubic and perianal regions (pubic lice).

Best give away in this question, for me, is the "white, globular protuberances". Looks just like the pic in First Aid 2019 (see below).
