|It is safe to use the All Stop Mitactin Spray on the skin for the treatment of scabies mites. The Disinfectant Spray cannot be used directly on the skin. If the PuraCleenRx Disinfectant Spray gets on your skin simply wash off with warm water.|
- Scabies is a very contagious infection of the skin which is inflicted by minisacule mites.
- The Scabies Mite is the cause of the problem by tunnelling into our skin to lay eggs.
- The mite is practically invisible to the human eye and it is a particularly common occurrence to be troubled with scabies.
- A female scabies mite tunnels to lay, and barely into the very first layer of the skin. She eats the skin as she tunnels and lives in the burrow for her lifetime.
- Once settled in the burrow the scabies mite might start laying almost at that moment and will do so more than once every day and over a period of up to two months.
- The scabies eggs hatch in a matter of days, and come out from the burrow to feast on a hair follicle.
- In as little time as as four days the scabies mite reaches maturity and searches for a mate, at which point the female will begin the process again, burrowing into the skin to lay her eggs.
- The Scabies infected person might notice small bites or pimples at first and it is worth being aware that the mites love to live in warm and moist areas.
- Scabies will most commonly be seen in the armpits or on the chest, as well as the genital area, the fingers, and anywhere where jewellery presents a warm spot.
- Areas where there are creases in the skin are attractive to the scabies mite and are usual spots for the infection to be found.
- Patients with Scabies could notice irritation - often very intense and most often at night - and the appearance of a red rash, and will be inclined to scratch the area infected.
- In youngsters it is general for the scabies mite to thrive on the soles of the feet and the palms, and also on the scalp, while in babies it is usually the neck and head that are most often affected.
- Itching and irritation is thanks to an allergic reaction that the body gives up to the presence of the scabies mites, and is sometimes very profound indeed.
- As the scabies irritation grows the patient could experience hardening of the skin, with crusty and scaly areas appearing in time.
- In people with sensitive skin, or those with severe scabies suffering nodular scabies can be the result.
- Nodular Scabies is a condition which is prevalent when debris left behind by the mite gets left under the skin.
- As scabies could become complicated and severe if left untreated it is vital that the right treatment is given for the specified time.
- The elderly and others with weak immune systems are particularly likely to suffer from serious cases of scabies, and should be concerned as a result.
- Like a number of similar problems scabies is notably contagious and it does not necessarily need one to come into direct contact with a sufferer to become infected.
- Lying in a bed or sitting in a chair that has been inhabited by a sufferer can bring about scabies infection, as can close contact with the individual.
- Scabies is often found in nursing homes where the elderly reside, and in those who work in the attached profession and come into contact with patients.
