The Scabies Rash is highly contagious and dangerous to your families well being. A single egg laying Scabei can burrow creating tiny tunnels under your skin and lay 40 eggs at a time. The eggs mature in about 21 days and eat their way back out to the surface of you skin and then live off of your own skin till in a very short time they once again burrow into your body and further infect you by laying eggs repeating the cycle with each female laying 40 eggs during its short life time. It does not take long before you are infested with thousands and in some cases millions of the little itching crawling scabies. Scabies are very tiny and invisible to the naked eye and we have movies below that show them in action living their lives on your body.

Scabies are only transmitted by contact. They cannot just jump from one person to another and can only live 2 to 3 days off of your body.

They are what others have called CRABS and made the joke of shaving your pubic hair and killing them with an ice pick when you set the other side on fire! Scabies Rashes or Scabies mites do hurt and itch that bad when they begin to take hold. It happens most often when you have a weak immune system they gain a foothold faster and grow more.
Scabies Mites are small eight-legged parasites related much closer to spiders than to insects. The mites are small to get an idea of their size just look at the period at the end of this sentence. The mites burrow into the skin and both the burrowing and the allergic reaction your body has to the mites under the skin produce intense itching. The itching tends to be worse at night and when you take a hot bath.
The most common locations for scabies to form burrows and live are on the sides of fingers, between the fingers, on the backs of the hands, on the wrists, heels, elbows, armpits, inner thighs and around the waist.
Several tests are used by doctors to see if you have a scabies infestation. The doctor can take skin scrapings and examine the scrapings under a microscope to find any eggs or mites present, or the can do an ink test where ink is placed on the skin and then washed off. If the ink soaks into the skin it may reveal some of the tiny burrows that the mites make. The burrows are usually less than an 1/8th of an inch long.
They can be transmitted by clothing like lice so if your clothing is hung next to some one who has them they can cross to you. . Below is a story of what happened in one school and what can happen to your family at anytime
This happened in a school and can happen anywhere.
Johnstown school nurse Sunny Humphrey is seeking parents’ assistance in an effort to fight a recurrence of scabies at Oregon Elementary.
Humphrey told The Independent that spots are back on some of the same students in the first-grade class that dealt with an outbreak in early March.
“We are assuming resurgence,” she said. “It isn’t like there are new cases. We’re researching it and redoubling our efforts.”
Scabies are tiny mites that burrow under the skin and produce intense itching and red bumps that usually look like insect bites. The mites are attracted to the warmth of humans, especially to areas like the underarms and between the fingers.
The bumps often don’t appear until four to six weeks after the infestation, Humphrey said. Scabies are spread by skin-to-skin contact.
The district needs parents’ help in being alert to the symptoms and taking their children for treatment, if they show signs of scabies.
“Don’t just consider it a mosquito or flea bite,” Humphrey said. “We need the parents help in communicating with us. We’re doing all we can do. I appreciate the parents who’re offering suggestions. I’m open to listening to suggestions.”
She said six cases of scabies were originally confirmed, including the first-grade teacher.
“Naturally we’re on high alert,” Humphrey said. “So far, it’s contained to that classroom.”
The district hired an expert nurse for most of last week to help with the effort, according to Humphrey.
“We’re putting an extra person on it, making sure children are getting clothes in a bag,” she said. “It’s taking a lot of time to fight this for me. There are still 1,500 other kids in the district too. We’ve been successful in containing it so far, so good. I hope we’ve got it.”
Following the advice of the Licking County Health Department, the first-grade classroom has been cleaned and inspected and the students are now keeping their coats and book bags in individual plastic bags during school hours.
The LCHD also recommended the school clean any upholstered furniture and rugs, as well as any plush toys or other items in the affected classroom.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention indicate that children and adults can return to school or work 24 hours after being properly treated to get rid of the Scabies Rash with a good Scabies Treatment.
In addition, the CDC recommends that bedding and clothing of those individuals who are infested with scabies be washed in hot water and dried on the hot cycle in order to assist with controlling the infestation.
The major Scabies Treatment to get rid of what looks like the Scabies Rash is given by doctors and is based on chemical insecticides. Insecticides will kill the infestation but their safety is in question. One of the insecticide based ointments that is used is Permethrin. At its best it may kill the scabies but has to be applied several times and can have unpleasant side effects such as itching and burning. The biggest concern is that this chemical treatment is created from the chemical, Pyrethrum. There has been serious concern that this may be a carcinogen.
Lindane, which is another prescribed chemical treatment which was widely used until recently has now been banned in over 40 countries due to possible associations with leukemia, seizures and Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Malathion is another insecticide which is also used and there is evidence to suggest that this can cause breathing difficulties, nausea and headaches in the people who use it. All in the name of getting rid of a tiny almost microscopic creature that could have been treated naturally and easily without the side effects of putting poison on your skin. The insecticide has to be rubbed on your body from the toes to the top of the neck and left for about 16 hours. In order to kill the bugs and has to be repeated later to kill the little bugs that may have hatched and been missed. Oh and the probability of being re-infested is pretty high remember you only have to leave one alive on your coat, hat jewelry etc. One of the movies below shows the infestation that can happen even in a clothing store.
