SCABIES

Scabies is a condition that develops as the result of parasitic mites that burrow into the skin to live and feed. The mites are not visible to the eye, but can cause skin reactions like itching, sores and a rash of pimple-like bumps that tend to form in a line on the skin. Some people even develop a thickened crust on the skin where the mites lay hundreds of eggs. If you suffer from scabies contact Dermatology Solutions.  Our team of medical professionals will work with you to determine the best course of action for treatment.

Symptoms of Scabies

Symptoms of scabies usually appear in the folds of the skin such as the armpits, inner elbow, around the knees and soles of the feet. Symptoms may include:

  • Severe itching, often gets worse at night
  • Tiny blisters 
  • Pimple-like bumps
  • Sores
  • Thin, irregular burrow tracks

When to Seek Medical Attention

Anyone who has symptoms of scabies should see a dermatologist immediately for evaluation. A sample of the skin will be examined microscopically to accurately diagnose the condition. If scabies is present, topical medicines are prescribed for overnight treatment of scabies. In some cases, additional treatments of antibiotics, steroid creams and antihistamines are necessary depending on symptoms and the extent of the scabies infection.
