We all appreciate your efforts.
We have had one reported case of Scabies in our school. If you think your child may have scabies they will need to see a Doctor who will prescribe a cream which is applied to the entire body and kills the mites.
What are the signs and symptoms of scabies?
After the mite burrows into the skin, it takes time to develop signs and symptoms. If you’ve had scabies before, the itching usually begins within one to four days. When a person has not had scabies, the body needs time to develop a reaction to the mite. It can take two to six weeks to develop symptoms.
Signs and symptoms of scabies include:
- Itching, mainly at night: Itching is the most common symptom. The itch can be so intense that it keeps a person awake at night.
- Rash: Many people get the scabies rash. This rash causes little bumps that often form a line. The bumps can look like hives, tiny bites, knots under the skin, or pimples. Some people develop scaly patches that look like eczema.
- Sores: Scratching the itchy rash can cause sores. An infection can develop in the sores.
- Scabies can develop anywhere on the skin. The mites, however, prefer to burrow in certain parts of the body. The most common places to have itching and a rash are:
- Hands: Mites like to burrow in the skin between the fingers and around the nails.
- Arms: Mites like the elbows and wrists.
- Skin usually covered by clothing or jewelry: The buttocks, belt line, penis, and skin around the nipples are likely places for mites to burrow. Mites also like to burrow in skin covered by a bracelet, watchband, or ring.
