Do scabies affect private parts?


Yes, scabies can affect the skin on and around the genital area, which includes the private parts. Scabies is a contagious skin condition caused by the Sarcoptes scabiei mite that burrows into the skin, causing intense itching and a rash. The mites can infest any part of the body, including the genital area.

In men, scabies can affect the scrotum, penis, and groin area. In women, scabies can affect the labia, pubic area, and inner thighs. It is also possible for scabies to spread to the anus and buttocks.

If you suspect you have scabies on or around your private parts, it’s important to seek medical attention and follow the prescribed treatment plan to avoid spreading the infestation to others.
