What is Scabies?
Scabies is a common skin condition caused by the human itch mite, a microscopic bug that is too small to be seen with the naked eye. The mite burrows beneath the upper layer of the skin. Once there, it causes intense itching and a rash. Scabies is spread by skin-to-skin contact and is very contagious.
Who Can Get Scabies?
Anyone is susceptible to scabies, regardless of gender or age.
A dermatologist can successfully diagnose and treat scabies using topical medicines.
