- DISEASE INFORMATION
Scabies is a skin infestation caused by a very tiny mite known as the Sarcoptes scabiei.
These microscopic mites can live on your skin for up to two months. They reproduce on the surface of your skin and then burrow into your skin and lay eggs. This causes a very itchy, pimple-like rash to form on the skin.
