What do scabie bites look like?


Scabies bites typically appear as small, red, raised bumps that can be very itchy. The bites are often in a line or clustered together, and they may form a zigzag pattern on the skin. Scabies mites burrow under the skin to lay their eggs, so the bites may also be accompanied by thin, wavy, thread-like lines on the skin, which are the burrows created by the mites. Scabies bites can appear anywhere on the body, but they are most common on the hands, wrists, elbows, armpits, waist, buttocks, and between the fingers. If you suspect that you have scabies, it is important to see a healthcare provider for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment.
