SCABIES AND TREATMENT
Scabies is a common skin infection due to the itch mite Sarcoptes
Scabei. Scabbies produces a variety of skin rashes, primarily found on the sides and webs of fingers, the wrists, elbows,
axillary folds, breasts of women, external genitalia of men, buttocks and margins or soles of the feet. The face and scalp
are not affected by scabies in adults. Scabies is usually acquired by close personal contact with an infected person
or bed linen. Localized or generalized itching caused by scabies may be severe. Confirmation of the diagnosis by microscopic
visualization of the scabies mite, or its products, from skin scrapings is helpful.
Treatment for scabbies consists of applying a special lotion or cream as directed and thorough laundering of clothing and
bedding. An inexpensive way of decontaminating scabies from clothes that require dry cleaning is to hang them in a sealed
garment bag with mothballs for two weeks. Although the scabbies mites are usually eradicated rapidly with therapy, the itching
may persist at a low level for much longer time after treatment, due to a secondary allergic response in the skin. Occasionally
cortisone creams, antihistamines and antibiotics will be needed for treatment of secondary eczema and/or infection caused

Causes of Scabies--
Scabbies is caused by a mite (Sarcoptes scabiei) which burrows under the skin, but the rash and itch are much more widespread
than the location of the mites.
The scabies mite may be passed easily by close contact and commonly starts at the wrist, presumably having been picked
up through holding hands.

Corrective measures for scabies: It takes a long time for persons infested with scabies mites to develop symptoms such
as a rash or itching. It is normally recommended that the patient and all the family members who have had close contacts receive
treatment at the same time. Currently medications for scabies treatment available include Kwell shampoo, which contains
1% lindane and 10% crotamiton (Eurax). These treatment preparations are available in creams or lotions and should be used
according to a physicians instructions instructions. Usually the treatment medication is applied at bedtime and then thoroughly
rinsed off the following morning. It`s recommended that a second treatment about one week later be applied to eliminate newly
hatched scabies mites before they are able to mature and lay eggs. Itching from scabies usually persists for a long time
due to allergic reactions produced by the scabies mites but this does not indicate that further treatment would be necessary.

Why Do Scabies Itch So Much--The itching comes from scabies setting up home in your child's body. Female scabies
mites burrow under the skin, where they lay eggs and also deposit faeces. The scabies eggs and scabies faeces trigger
an allergic reaction in your child's skin, which is the cause of the almost unbearable itching.
All infected persons should receive treatment. "Contacts" of a person with scabbies (such as sexual
partners or household members) should also receive treatment.
Good personal hygiene, frequent hand washing, regular bathing or showering, regular changes of bed linens,
and not sharing clothing helps prevent scabies.
What is treatment for scabies rash
Scabies treatment consists of a cream from your doctor. Even after the
cream gets rid of mites, a child may still be itchy for a few weeks after treatment. It doesnt mean that the mites are still
there. It just means that the child is still reacting to the scabbies mite.
