What Is Scabies?

Scabies Information

What Is Scabies?

Scabies is a common skin condition that is very contagious. It is caused by female mites burrowing into the skin, and laying their eggs. The burrowing of the mites leaves people who suffer from scabies with a rash and in some instances thin raised lesions that can be described as ‘pencil marks’, although not all people display this symptom.  It is common to have redness and itching around the body, but not as much on the face and scalp. Due to the nature of the symptoms associated with scabies, it is particularly difficult for those who suffer from eczema or psoriasis to realise when they have scabies. As mentioned scabies is highly contagious, and can be passed easily through close contact and in places where many people are living together like hostels or nursing homes.

How Can I Treat Scabies?

Scabies can be treated with a variety of creams and lotions that are prescribed to kill the mites and their eggs. When treating scabies, it is important to remember to rid your home from the infection. Ridding your home of the infection involves cleaning furniture, bedding, clothes, carpets and any other miscellaneous items thoroughly to ensure there are no parasites or mites in your home to avoid infecting anyone in the area.
