A highly contagious skin condition, scabies is caused by mite Sarcoptes scabiei hominis. These host-specific mites burrow into the skin and lay their eggs, which eventually hatch and grow into adults. The characteristic symptoms of the disease include superficial burrows, which cause intense itching followed by secondary infection.
Scabies is demographic in epidemiology and is prevalent all across the globe. The disease affects all ages under different climatic conditions. However, it is most often observed in crowded and unhygienic living conditions.
Signs and Symptoms of Scabies
Burrows are the pathognomonic signs, which represent the intra-epidermal tunnels, created by the moving female mites. Having thread like appearance, the length of the burrows ranges between 2-10mm.
High yield locations for mite infestation include – webbed spaces between fingers, elbows, flexor surfaces of wrists, belt line, axillae and feet.
Diagnosis of the disease is often made clinically in patients suffering from pruritic rash with characteristic liner burrows. Light microscopic identification of scabies mites, larvae or scybala in skin scrapings, confirms scabies infection.
