Health Conditions: Scabies

Scabies is a contagious skin infection caused by a tiny burrowing mite. It occurs when the mite digs a hole into the top layer of the human skin in order to lay its eggs. The presence of this mite leads to the formation of blisters and causes intense itching in the affected area. This infection usually occurs on the elbows, hands, wrists, feet and back.
