Scabies

Scabies can be painful and difficult to treat at home. Let Paladin Dermatology’s experienced medical staff provide your scabies treatment today.

Scabies are microscopic mites that burrow within the skin. They can spread rapidly in crowded areas where there is frequent skin-to-skin contact between people. Infestation may also occur by sharing clothing, towels and bedding.

Scabies symptoms can include intense itching, pimple-like irritation and sores on the body caused by scratching. For people who have never been infested with scabies, symptoms may take 4-6 weeks to begin. For those who have had it before, symptoms appear within several days. One of our providers can quickly identify and diagnose the problem. Treatment usually consists of topical ointments and can quickly start seeing results.
