Scabies

Scabies is a contagious skin condition caused by tiny mites that burrow into the skin. 

Scabies is usually spread through prolonged periods of skin-to-skin contact with an infected person, or through sexual contact.

It can take up to eight weeks for the symptoms of scabies to appear after the initial infection. This is known as the incubation period.
