Scabies Green icon of person with scabies

Scabies is an infectious dermatological condition instigated by the microscopic mite Sarcoptes scabiei var. hominis. This mite infiltrates the epidermis, laying eggs and inducing severe pruritus and cutaneous eruptions. The condition is classified into two primary forms: crusted and non-crusted, each necessitating distinct therapeutic protocols (Journal of Clinical Dermatology, 2020).

The FDA has sanctioned various topical and oral pharmacological interventions targeting both the parasite and its symptomatology (FDA Drug Approval Database). The NIH has allocated funding for research aimed at discovering innovative therapies for scabies, underlining its epidemiological significance (NIH Research Portfolio). Scabies thus remain a condition of medical import, warranting continued research and therapeutic innovation (WHO Guidelines on Scabies Management).
