Does severe itching denote scabies? Know how to protect yourself if you are having it. Today’s topic is regarding the same. Scabies remained at the center of skin diseases since around 500 B.C. in Greek, Roman and other civilizations. However in the year 1687, Giovan Cosimo Bonomo figured out that the prime cause behind this severe itching is the scabies mite. Scabies is regarded as the itching that does not go even after seven years. About 2.4% of the world’s population were affected by Scabies in the year 2015.

At the initial stages, scabies is characterized by unbearable itching at almost all parts of the body but mostly on wrists, between fingers, arm pits, perineum. This symptom takes 2 – 6 weeks to develop. The second stage is characterized by burrows on the skin that develop within 24 hours after the first stage.
Scabies is contagious to people of all ages irrespective of gender. However, teenagers and elderly are observed to be affected to a greater extent.
