Scabies - S10 Scabies - S10 Presentation Transcript

  • Scabies By Zachary Barrett-Quinones
  • Some Facts About Scabies
    • Skin disease caused by Sarcoptes Scabiei mites
    • Very contagious
    • Red, hive-like spots that are extremely itchy
    • Can take weeks for symptoms to occur
    • During those weeks, transmission is still possible
  • That doesn’t sound very fun…
    • Well good call, it’s not. Scabies can live on clothes, linens and cleaning products for 2 - 3 days without contact with skin. This means that living with someone who gets Scabies makes you an easy target.
  • Hi Scabies!!!!
  • BUT WAIT! THERE’S TREATMENT!
    • There is a specific lotion that is rubbed on at night and washed off in the morning that gets rid of the mites. But, to help prevent spreading, washing all cloths and linens in a hot washer and drying in a hot dryer is necessary. The infected person should have their own cleaning supplies as well.
