Descripción: Scabies is a skin infection caused by mites known as Sarcoptes Scabie.
they are common all over the world, especially in hot and humid areas
Females burrow into the skin, laying about 25 eggs and then die. The new mites
hatch from the eggs in 10-15 days, tunnel up to the skin surface and grow into adults.
The main symptoms of scabies are due to the body's allergic reaction to the mites and
their waste.
There are two forms of scabies both caused by the same mite.
The most common form of 'classical scabies', has fewer than 20 mites all over the
The rarer type of 'crusted (Norwegian) scabies', which may be seen in
immunosuppressed individuals, can have thousands or millions of mites causing a
more severe reaction in the skin. It develops due to an insufficient immune response
in the host
