Scabies In The Home
You might not like to hear the word scabies, but it is actually a lot more common than one person might think. Scabies is a bug, a problem that will not go away on its own. Scabies is a thing that will be spread by close body contact, by sleeping in the same bed, or in filth. While scabies is not going to kill a person, it can be very bothersome, causing major itching and major scarring if not cared for.
Scabies is a tiny bug, one that will live in the skin. Scabies is going to thrive on the body, and with your body being the host; it will spread and continue spreading over your body until you receive the proper treatment. One person could have scabies, and another could be putting the cream on the body of the infected person. The person who spreads the cream on the body should be careful, because you can catch scabies in this manner. Gloves and protective clothing should be worn so that you donít catch scabies while you are trying to treat another person.
What you might find surprising is that there are many who are involved in sports, in college dorms and in high school locker rooms who easily spread the bug, and the disease with out ever telling anyone else at all. Close physical contact is one of the easiest and fastest ways to spread the disease. You canít get rid of scabies without the proper anti biotic treatments. If you are trying to dry them out, using powders, creams and such you are not going to find the relief from the itching. You need to get the medication to kill the bugs in the skin. You canít see the little bugs, you canít kill them off by scraping the skin, but you can skill them by using the proper medications and creams. You can find these creams online and offline.
Scabies will look something like small red bumps, like a rash that will start in the pelvic areas, or the areas that are kept moist and warm on the body, such as in the arm pits, between the legs and on the buttocks. If one is not careful, the scabies can spread all over the body, almost driving a person insane with the itchy feeling of the skin, and nothing really makes it go away or feel any better. The small red bumps can be treated and will be easily put to rest if you use the medication that is designed for a problem like this.
If you find that you have scabies, you should wash your clothes, all of your clothes. Use a bleach spray on your bed, in your car, and on your carpets. You will have to be careful so you donít bleach the color out your items but you also want to kill any little critters that may be waiting until after you start using the medication to get back on your body. Wash your clothes in hot hot hot water for the best effects. Use the dryer on high to kill anything that could be living in your clothing while you are taking and starting the medications.
