About this section


MedlinePlus:34 Scabies is an itchy skin condition caused by the microscopic mite sarcoptes scabei. it is common all over the world, and can affect anyone. scabies spreads quickly in crowded conditions where there is frequent skin-to-skin contact between people. hospitals, child-care centers, and nursing homes are examples. scabies can easily infect sex partners and other household members. sharing clothes, towels, and bedding can sometimes spread scabies. this can happen much more easily when the infested person has crusted scabies. you cannot get scabies from a pet. pets get a different mite infection called mange. symptoms are pimple-like irritations or a rash intense itching, especially at night sores caused by scratching your health care provider diagnoses scabies by looking at the skin rash and finding burrows in the skin. several lotions are available to treat scabies. the infected person's clothes, bedding and towels should be washed in hot water and dried in a hot dryer. treatment is also recommended for household members and sexual partners. centers for disease control and prevention

MalaCards based summary: Scabies, also known as infestation by sarcoptes scabiei var hominis, is related to bullous pemphigoid and leukemia. An important gene associated with Scabies is CFP (complement factor properdin), and among its related pathways are Selected targets of GCR alpha and IL4-mediated signaling events. The drugs lindane and ivermectin and the compounds antistasin and benzidine have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, breast and t cells, and related mouse phenotypes are homeostasis/metabolism and hematopoietic system.

Disease Ontology:10 A mite infestation that is a contagious ectoparasite skin infection caused by human itch mite sarcoptes scabiei type hominis, which burrows into the upper layer of the skin but never below the stratum corneum causing severe itching and a rash found on the hands, folds of the wrist, elbow or knee, penis, breast, and shoulder blades.

CDC:4 Human scabies is caused by an infestation of the skin by the human itch mite (Sarcoptes scabiei var. hominis). The microscopic scabies mite burrows into the upper layer of the skin where it lives and lays its eggs. The most common symptoms of scabies are intense itching and a pimple-like skin rash. The scabies mite usually is spread by direct, prolonged, skin-to-skin contact with a person who has scabies.
