What is it?
Scabies is caused by a tiny mite that burrows into the skin. You can get the mites from frequent skin-to-skin contact with another person who has scabies. You can also get scabies by sharing infected clothing, bedding or towels.
What are the symptoms?
Scabies can be treated and cured with medicated lotion. Also, all infected clothing, bedding and towels must be washed.
