Scabies is a skin infestation caused by a tiny microscopic bug known as the human itch mite. This mite is usually passed from simple skin to skin contact and can be transmitted through infested clothing or bedding. Scabies mites mate on the skin’s surface before the females burrow into the skin to lay eggs. After the eggs hatch, new mites migrate to the skin’s surface. Mites are cream colored with bristles and spines.
