The scabies rash is caused by the human itch mite called Sarcoptes scabiei. These mites are attracted to the warmth and odor of human skin. These microscopic mites eat your skin.
Anyone can get scabies. It is a myth that only people who don't shower and don't keep a clean home can contract scabies. There is also a stigma associated with scabies and much misinformation.
Scabies is far more common than people expect. The scabies mite is usually passed from person to person. Still, it can also be contracted using an infected person's belongings. For example, sharing a bed with someone with scabies, even if the person is not in bed, can open the door for you to get this mite.
These particular mites cannot fly, jump or even scuttle away quickly. They move very slowly, and direct contact with them is the only way to become their new host, but once they borrow in, they can be a real problem to get rid of.
We've compiled the facts about scabies to give you the knowledge and tools you will need to understand and eliminate this awful little mite.
Once you come in direct contact with these mites, they tend to migrate to an area of your body with rough or wrinkled skin (i.e., elbows, knuckles, knees, etc.). The female mite burrows into the host using its mouth and specially designed cutting surfaces on its front legs.
Once inside, she leaves a trail of excrement, shedded skin, and waste. These secretions and waste products trigger your body's immune system to respond, causing inflammation and a rash.
Once these mites create burrows, they begin to lay eggs. As more mites are born, the rash grows and becomes itchier due to more and more waste, secretions, and molted skin.
Scratching can help spread mites to other areas of the body. But touching the rash to other parts of your body can also spread the infestation. This is why Scabies is exceptionally contagious and why it is crucial to begin treatment as soon as you are diagnosed.
It can take several weeks to begin showing symptoms of Scabies. However, you are still contagious during this time, which is called the incubation period.
Children can easily contract mites simply because they are in close contact with other children. They will likely not show symptoms during the two to the three-week incubation period. A person who has had mites before usually shows signs within a few days of contracting them, lessening the incubation period and, thus, the time they unknowingly infect others.
Familiar places of infestation are the wrists, knees, elbows, chest, back, groin, and buttocks area. If even one mite is left alive, you are still contagious!
Because of how contagious this parasite is, it is much more essential to find an effective treatment that will kill the scabies mites the first time around without causing harm to you.
How Is Scabies Spread?
Scabies is spread by close, intimate contact, such as sleeping in the same bed with or touching someone with scabies.
Scabies may also be spread by contact with clothes, bed linens, and someone-infested household articles.
Scratching can spread scabies mites to other body areas. Simply touching another part of the body may also apply them.
