What is Scabies?

Scabies is a parasitic skin disease caused by agents known as sarcoptiform .

The transmission of scabies takes place skin-to-skin, usually during sex, which is why it is also considered a sexually transmitted disease (STD).

Scabies lesions can develop into rashes, sores and scabs located on the genitals, hands, wrists, elbow flexion and navel, which will be irritated, painful and itchy.

The treatment of scabies consists of the application of ointments with Permethrin or the taking of pills with Ivermectin.
