About this course

Scabies is a common condition worldwide and affects all ages, races, and income levels. It is unrelated to hygiene. Scabies is caused by an infestation of the skin by the human itch mite, which is known scientifically as Sarcoptes scabiei. The human itch mite is an eight-legged creature that can only be seen with the aid of a microscope. The adult female mites burrow into the epidermis (the upper layer of skin), where they live, feed, and lay their eggs. They very rarely burrow past the stratum corneum, which is the most superficial layer of the epidermis. If you think you may have scabies, follow a few simple steps to learn how to recognize scabies and measures you can take to diagnose, treat, and prevent them in the future.
