Scabies is an infestation in the skin of mites. It causes small, red bumps and severe itching. Scabies is very contagious. It is spread by direct skin contact. It is easily spread by:

  • Sexual contact
  • Other close physical contact
  • Sharing bed linens and towels
  • Shared clothing

What causes scabies?

Scabies mites burrow under the skin. They don’t jump or fly. They lay eggs in the skin. The eggs hatch and grow into adults. They then create new burrows over the next 1 to 2 weeks. The mites die in about 4 to 6 weeks. The rash and itching are caused by an allergic reaction to the mites’ saliva or feces.

Scabies mites are very contagious. They often spread from person to person while they are sleeping in the same bed, or during other close contact. Scabies should be treated quickly to keep the mites from spreading.

Who is at risk for scabies?

Scabies can affect people of all ages and social groups. It is common all over the world. Scabies happens mostly in children and young adults. It’s also more likely if you live in close quarters with other people, such as in a college dormitory or nursing home.

You are more at risk if you are in contact for at least 15 to 20 minutes with someone who has scabies. Scabies mites can pass from person to person through close physical contact. They can also be passed through shared clothing, towels, and bedding. Therefore proper instructions are to be followed after treatment to prevent scabies to reinfect you.

What are the symptoms of scabies?

It may take 2 to 6 weeks to develop symptoms of scabies after contact with an infected person. If you have had scabies before, the rash can appear in 1 to 4 days.

Symptoms can occur a bit differently in each person. They can include:

  • Itching, usually severe and worse at night
  • Rash with small pimples or red bumps
  • Tiny lines on the skin surface, which are the mites’ burrows
  • Sores on the body caused by scratching
  • Scaly or crusty skin in severe cases

📢 Important Advisory for Patients Considering Cosmetic/Medical Procedures

Dear Valued Patients,

We believe in providing you with the best care and guidance as you consider cosmetic procedures to enhance your well-being. It is crucial for us to ensure that you are well-informed and understand the nuances of these procedures, including their limitations and potential risks. Please take a moment to read and absorb the following points:

No Guaranteed Outcomes: It is essential to comprehend that no medical treatment or surgery can be guaranteed to result in absolute benefits or complete recovery. We want to emphasize that there are no guarantees of being "cured" or achieving specific outcomes.

Informed Decision Making: Prior to undergoing any cosmetic procedure, we encourage you to educate yourself about the procedure's details, potential risks, and anticipated outcomes. This empowers you to make informed decisions aligned with your personal goals and expectations.

Risk Considerations: No procedure is entirely risk-free. All medical interventions, including cosmetic procedures, carry inherent risks. Understanding and accepting these risks is a vital part of your journey towards achieving your desired results.

Doctor's Skill and Competence: We assure you that our team possesses the necessary expertise and competence in their respective fields. We commit to applying our skills with reasonable care and competence to ensure your safety and well-being.

Timing and Emotional Well-being: Optimal results from cosmetic procedures can be influenced by emotional factors. We recommend considering the timing of your procedure, especially in relation to major life events such as relocation, job changes, bereavement, relationship changes, or the arrival of children. Emotional stability contributes positively to your overall experience.

Your health and satisfaction are our top priorities. By acknowledging these points, you are taking an active role in your journey towards self-enhancement. If you have any questions or concerns, our dedicated team is here to provide you with the guidance you need.

Thank you for trusting us with your care.

How many sessions do I require?

The healthier your skin/hair are when starting out, the easier it will take the treatment. The sessions must be spaced to allow adequate healing in between. Skin/Hair that are healthy enough to regenerate fairly quickly will be able to endure more sessions of a treatment in a shorter period of time.

While these aren’t the only factors involved, they are the most common. Don’t be surprised, however, if your doctor mentions another situation that could impact the length and/or number of sessions you may require. Every person is different, and your circumstances will be unique only to YOU.
