What Are Scabies?

Scabies are tiny mites that cannot be seen by the human eye. These mites burrow within the skin where they lay their eggs. In a few weeks, the eggs hatch and scabies move over the surface of the skin causing an extremely itchy allergic reaction rash. Scabies can easily spread to other people by direct contact, or contact with infected towels, clothing or sheets. People are often infected at schools, childcare centers, and nursing homes.

Scabies Symptoms

The earliest and most common symptom is itching, especially at night. Tiny red bumps or pimples may appear, developing into more crusty or scaly areas as the condition progresses. Scabies can be diagnosed by a dermatologist by a thorough head-to-toe examination and by looking at a sample of an infected area under a microscope. When the condition is discovered, treatment is available, including topical medication and guidance on how to treat your clothing and personal items to rid them of mites.
