“Scabies can develop anywhere on the skin; however, the mites prefer to burrow in certain parts of the body,” said Dr. Zeichner. “The most common places to have symptoms are the hands, arms and any skin covered by clothing or jewelry, such as the wrist, belt line and groin.”
If you suspect you have scabies, Dr. Zeichner recommends the following tips:
“Medicine to effectively treat scabies is only available with a doctor’s prescription,” said Dr. Zeichner. “If you notice symptoms or are told that you have been around someone who has scabies, see a board-certified dermatologist for treatment.”
These tips are demonstrated in “What to Do if You Have Scabies,” a video posted to the AAD website and YouTube channel. This video is part of the AAD’s “Video of the Month” series, which offers tips people can use to properly care for their skin, hair and nails. A new video in the series posts to the AAD website and YouTube channel each month.
