Scabies mites typically burrow into the skin and create tunnels in the upper layers of the skin. They tend to bite in areas where the skin is thin and soft, such as between the fingers, on the wrists, elbows, armpits, waistline, buttocks, genitals, and nipples (in women). However, scabies can occur on any part of the body, including the face, neck, scalp, and soles of the feet. The bites usually appear as small, raised, red bumps that can be very itchy, especially at night. It’s important to note that not everyone who gets scabies will experience visible bites, as some people may have a mild reaction or no reaction at all.
