Transcript of Whats in your body???
Scabies spread by skin-to-skin contact with another person has scabies.
Less often it can be spread by sharing clothes or bedding. Sometimes whole families are affected.
Outbreaks of scabies are more common in nursing homes, nursing facilities, college dorms, and child care centers.
So what happens?
Itching, most commonly at night
Rashes, mostly between the fingers
Sores (abrasions) on the skin from scratching and digging
Thin, pencil-mark lines on the skin
Mites may be more widespread on a baby's skin, causing pimples over the trunk, or small blisters over the palms and soles.
In young children, the infection may be on the head, neck, shoulders, palms, and soles of feet.
In older children and adults, the infection may be on the hands, wrists, genitals, and abdomen.
Bed Bugs don't have (
) on scabies
Before treatment, wash underwear, towels, and sleepwear in hot water.
Vacuum the carpets and upholstered furniture. Use calamine lotion and soak in a cool bath to ease itching.
Take an oral antihistamine if your doctor recommends it for very bad itching.
MEDICINES FROM YOUR HEALTH CARE PROVIDER The whole family or sexual partners of infected people should be treated, even if they do not have symptoms.
Itching may continue for 2 weeks or more after treatment begins. It will disappear if you follow your health care provider's treatment plan. Most cases of scabies can be cured without any long-term problems. A severe case with a lot of scaling or crusting may be a sign that the person has a disease such as HIV.
Your itching where?!
The mites that cause scabies burrow into the skin and lay their eggs. This forms a burrow that looks like a pencil mark. Eggs hatch in 21 days. The itchy rash is an allergic response to the mite.
Pets and animals cannot spread human scabies. It is also not very likely for scabies to be spread by:
A swimming pool
Contact with the towels, bedding, and clothing of someone who has scabies, unless the person has what is called "crusted scabies"
