They're dorky kids... they are ugly and their momma dresses em funny. You can get rid of em by laughin at them or squirting / throwing water, juice, pop or whatever is available at them.

Scabies: Infestation of the skin by the human itch mite, Sarcaptes scabies. The initial symptom of scabies are red, raised bumps that are intensely itchy. A magnifying glass will reveal short, wavy lines of red skin, which are the burrows made by the mites. Treatment is with any of several scabicide medications.

They are pesky little buggers. Also goes by the name lice.
Easy to get rid of though.

Get a lotion from pharmacy and use as per directions. If left untreated, of course, it is uncomfortable and you infect others as well. They do jump from one head to other.

They are caused by improper personal hygiene.

i believe they are little bugs that jump around like an infestation.

They are tiny parasites which burrow under the skin, leaving track-like marks. They are also quite infectious. Get some lotion from your pharmacy or doctor.

They are ichy and red dots. Go on line and and you can buy an 8 hour cream to get rid of it. Elimite- something like that. Wash everything in ver hot water. You can get them from another person

Scabies is a skin infection caused by an infestation with the microscopic Sarcoptes scabei parasitic mite.

The typical treatment for scabies involves applying 5% Permethrin cream or lotion (Elimite) to a child's entire body from the neck down. Keep in mind that infants may need to have their head treated too, including their hairline and scalp. The cream or lotion is left on for 8-14 hours and then washed off and then a second treatment may be needed a week later. Close contacts, including all family members, should also be treated at the same time.

Scabies is a skin infection caused by an infestation with the microscopic Sarcoptes scabei parasitic mite. Although distressing for parents, who associate conditions like scabies and head lice with poor hygiene, scabies is actually fairly common and affects children of all races and social classes.
Symptoms
After being exposed to someone with scabies, it can take 4-6 weeks for a rash to develop, which appears as:
little red bumps, nodules, or pimple like irritations, which are most commonly located on the webbing between children's fingers, on the inner part of their wrist, under their arms, and on their elbows, knees, and along their belt line.
short zigzag or S shaped lines or burrows
sores, which can be caused by a secondary bacterial infection
In addition to the rash, the most characteristic symptom of scabies is that the rash is intensely itchy, especially at night.

Treatments
The typical treatment for scabies involves applying 5% Permethrin cream or lotion (Elimite) to a child's entire body from the neck down. Keep in mind that infants may need to have their head treated too, including their hairline and scalp. The cream or lotion is left on for 8-14 hours and then washed off and then a second treatment may be needed a week later. Close contacts, including all family members, should also be treated at the same time.
Although the Elimite will kill the mites, your child may also need treatment for the rash. This can include topical steroid creams, oral antihistamines, and other anti-itch treatments.

Since the mites can live for 48-72 hours on clothing, bedding, towels, etc., should be washed in hot water and then dried in a hot dryer. Things that can't be washed can be placed in a plastic bag for a few weeks to make sure the mites have died. Furniture and carpeting should also be vacuumed carefully.

you can't see them,they burrow under the skin and are highly contageous. It starts off as a few itchy small spots and before you know it, you're driven mad by the itch and lots more spots follow. The mite likes to borrow in skin creases, between fingers,back of the knees,but is'nt too fussy. You may be able to buy some cream at a pharmacy. I got mine on prescription. Yes, I had them ! My little niece brought them back from another kid in nursery and kindly shared them with me ! The cream is also used for "crabs". The chemist was full when my prescription was being drawn up and the pharmacist said in a very loud voice " Cover yourself in the cream if it's scabies,but for crabs......" I grabbed the cream and ran. The itch does get worse,before it gets better.Bedding has to be washed,all your clothes,and don't share towels.
