Scabies is known as the 7 year itch bug, which truly will bring about years of awkward itching…
Scabies is an infectious skin disease caused by the hard to see tiny parasite Sarcoptes Scabiei. The bugs burrow below the skin for the most part in the areas of the hands, feet, wrists, elbows, bottom, genital areas or wherever there are folds of skin or in the middle of the fingers or toes.
I find them most predominant staring me in the face and feet, but they can show up all around, including face, neck, mouth and head. Person to person contact and touching different objects are methods for spreading the infection.
About scabies symptoms…
The most noticeable symptom of the disease is extremely itching, particularly around evening time and can look like a group of mosquito bites as S-shaped tracks on the skin. Usually symptoms appears 2-6 weeks after infestation, however, it has been known to show up months or even years after contact.
Crusted scabies or Norwegian scabies
Crusted scabies or Norwegian scabies are more at risk to people with immune suppressed systems, for example, people with cancer or HIV. People with crusted scabies experience the ill effects of flaky rashes and thick hulls of skin that contain a huge number of mites and experience issues killing the parasites because of the defensive way of the outside layer from topical creams like Dr. Scabies. The vermin have eight legs as a grown-up and put in the class of Arachnida, for example, creepy crawlies or ticks.
The slow movement of the parasite on your skin is the thing that causes severe itching of your skin and the parasite feces being left under your skin. Scabies transmission spreads by scratching the infected area picking the parasite under the fingernail or being around an infected person for an extended time period. Scabies are normally gone through sexual contact and wearing condoms does not stop the spread of scabies bugs.
There isn’t an immunization accessible to cure the parasite. Treatment of the vermin uses a topical cream called Permethrin or oral drug called ivermectin. If you get infected with the parasite, everybody in your family must be treated even if they show no symptoms. Cleaning your surroundings carefully, washing all materials and garments in very high temp water and dried in a hot dryer will execute them.
Also, having your environment sprayed by an expert bug control would be perfect if you can manage the cost of it. All the best with this pesky pest!
