Scabies

Scabies is a contagious skin condition caused by a small mite burrow into the skin to live and feed. Although mites are not visible to the eye, they can cause skin reactions like redness, itching, sores and a rash of pimple-like bumps that tend to form in a line on the skin. Anyone who has symptoms of scabies should see a dermatologist immediately for evaluation.  At Dermatology Solutions, we have a variety of general dermatology treatment options for scabies. We provide same day appointments so you can get the relief you need as quickly as possible.
