Scabies

Scabies is a skin infection that is caused by a type of mite. It is very contagious. Scabies mites burrow, or tunnel, under the outer layer of skin. This produces pimple-like irritations known as the scabies rash. The mites are about the size of a pinhead, are nearly transparent, and usually cannot be seen. These mites lay eggs under the skin and feed on blood. Scabies is transferred by direct skin-to-skin contact. It can also be transferred by contact with clothes or bedding that has been contaminated by an infected person. A very common way to get scabies is to shake hands with an infected person.
