Scabies is a common condition which happens when scabies mites start to infest your skin.
When you have scabies, you’ll notice the symptoms showing up all over your body, except your head, although elderly people and children may see symptoms on their head too.
And yes, when we say everywhere, we MEAN everywhere (hey, nobody said this was pleasant).
When the scabies mites get onto your skin, they’ll start to burrow, laying their eggs in the tracks they leave behind.
If scabies isn’t treated, these eggs can hatch and the cycle will begin all over again – and if that won’t convince you to get treatment, nothing will!Read more

They’re not very agile, just very common and very quick at breeding, which means that one head louse can turn into an infestation before you know it.Read more
