What does scabies look like?

Scabies are a highly contagious skin infection of body mites. These mites burrow under the skin and cause intense itching. They may leave red trails where they travel under the skin and bumps with or without open sores. The sores and trails are usually found around the webbing of the hands but can be found anywhere on the body.

    That sounds very unpleasant, so I hope one who is suffering from this can find treatment quickly.

      I've heard of scabies and outbreaks of them but I don't think I've ever experienced them or seen what they look like. I know it makes me itchy thinking about it!
        I have heard of the word scabies but never knew what they were exactly ...thanks for the information
