Scabies is a common condition that anyone can get. Passed on from person to person by skin-to-skin contact, it can easily be transmitted to others if left unchecked and untreated. Scabies can develop anywhere on the skin. The most common places to have itching and a rash are hands, arms, and skin usually covered by clothing or jewellery. The severe itch can lead to constant scratching and potentially an infection..

Symptoms may include:
  • Itching, often worse at night
  • Thin, wavy tunnels made up of tiny blisters or bumps on the skin
  • Red spots

Scabies is highly contagious and can spread quickly through close person-to-person contact in a family, childcare group, or school class. Because scabies spreads so easily, healthcare care providers often recommend treating the entire family or any close contacts.

When it comes to treating scabies, medicated creams or lotions are a very reliable and highly effective means of alleviating scabies as well as any lingering symptoms. To find out more advice and information about treatment options relating to scabies, then please consult with an Elite Meds prescriber.
