- Scabies is a notably easy to spread condition of the skin and is caused by miniature mites.
- The Scabies Mite causes the condition by tunnelling into our skin to harbour eggs.
- The mite is virtually invisible to the sufferer and it is a very common complaint to be affected with scabies.
- A female scabies mite tunnels to lay, and barely into the very top layer of the skin. She eats the skin as she burrows and stays in the burrow for her lifetime.
- Once safely in the burrow the scabies mite might begin 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 are born in a few 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 laying age and hunts for a mate, after which the female will go over the process again, burrowing into the skin to lay her eggs.
- The Scabies sufferer may notice miniature bites or pimples in the first instance and it is worth being aware that the mites breed in warm and moist areas.
- Scabies will most commonly occur in the armpits or on the chest, as well as the genital area, the fingers, and anywhere where jewellery presents a warm and safe place.
- Places where there are hiding places in the skin are popular with the scabies mite and are usual spots for the mites to be found.
- Patients with Scabies may notice itching - often very intense and most commonly at night - and the appearance of a red rash, and will be inclined to scratch the area affected.
- In younger patients it is common for the scabies mite to appear 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 comes about thanks to an allergic reaction that the body undergoes thanks to the presence of the scabies mites, and is sometimes very profound indeed.
- As the scabies irritation increases the sufferer will experience hardening of the skin, with crusty and scaly areas appearing in time.
- In people with sensitive skin, or those with serious scabies suffering nodular scabies may be the result.
- Nodular Scabies is a type which is prevalent when debris left behind by the mite becomes embedded under the skin.
- As scabies could become complicated and painful if left untreated it is essential that the right treatment is given for the specified time.
- The elderly and people with weak immune systems are generally likely to suffer from serious cases of scabies, and should be wary as a result.
- Like many similar problems scabies is highly contagious and it does not necessarily take one to come into direct contact with a case to become infected.
- Sleeping in a bed or relaxing in a chair that has been used by a sufferer can bring about scabies infection, as can close contact with the individual.
- Scabies is sometimes found in nursing homes where the aged reside, and in persons who work in the health profession and come into contact with patients.
