A Brief Insight Into Scabies, Its Causes, And Treatment!

A Brief Insight Into Scabies, Its Causes, And Treatment!

A highly contagious skin condition that is caused by the infestations of tiny burrowing mites but is treatable with medication is Scabies. When the skin comes in direct contact with infested bedding or clothing, microscopic human mites, known as Sarcoptes Scabiei, are transmitted into the skin, burrowing into the epidermis. Once the mites reach the epidermis, it lays eggs there and continues to live, causing scabies which results in skin rashes and itchy bumps.

Causes:
Scabies is caused by the microscopic human itch mite when it burrows inside the epidermis. And there are two ways that a person can be infected with scabies, which are:

  1. Contact with objects infested: Sometimes, when the mite is present on an object, such as the bed sheet or the upholstered furniture, the towel or the bedding, and the skin comes in contact with these objects, scabies may spread. However, one must know that without human skin contact, the mite can survive only for 48 to 72 hours and this makes the risk of causing scabies through contact with infected objects less common.
  2. Direct skin to skin contact: Scabies is contagious but not highly contagious. Skin contact for a small period of time can not infect a person. Close physical with the infected person can lead to the spread of mites.

It is to be noted here that getting scabies from animals is not possible even if the animal has mites as this kind of scabies infest the human skin only.

Treatment
Scabies is often confused with other skin issues like eczema and psoriasis. Therefore, every person with severe itching should be tested for scabies. Once diagnosed, the treatment is relatively simple. Listed below are some of the treatment options:

  1. Antibiotics: Patients who are suffering from excessive skin rash, itching and infections are usually treated with antibiotics to ease the itchy sensation.
  2. Decontamination: The decontamination involves washing the clothes of the infected person in hot water and keeping the objects that cannot be washed in a bag for around 2 to 3 days to kill mites and their eggs.
  3. Scabicides: Depending on the severity, overall health and age, the patient may be prescribed oral medication and creams.
  4. Antihistamine: Antihistamine refers to over-the-counter anti-allergy drugs that can also be of help in managing the itching and rashes.

Things to remember:

  1. In case of infected adults, scabicide cream or lotion needs to be applied all over infected person’s body, starting from the neck down to the toes.
  2. If a child is infected with scabies, the scabicide cream or lotion needs to be applied from head to toe.
  3. In case of an infant, it is advised that only sulfur ointment or permethrin may be used. It is essential that the medication is applied only over a clean body.
  4. All the people living with the infected person should also be treated simultaneously to avoid reinfestation.

As scabies spread moderately contagious, early diagnosis and treatment can prevent it from spreading further and causing any more trouble.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hi. Getting pimples or Acne is irritating and embarrasing enough for young people, but the thought of scars being left behind by Acne can lead to sleepless nights. Acne is a result of inflammation of sebaceous glands present in the skin. It can appear in various forms on the skin like small red-coloured elevations (papules), eruptions containing pus (pustules), fluid containing deep sac like eruptions (cysts), or thick, hard eruptions (nodules). Homoeopathic treatment cures acne, scars completely without side effects. You can buy acne package offered by me which includes medicines and consultation.

Tips To Get Rid Of Unwanted Freckles!

Tips To Get Rid Of Unwanted Freckles!

It is perhaps impossible to find a woman who doesn’t imagine her face without the freckles when she looks into the mirror. Though they may be called 'kisses from the sun', every woman would love to kiss those freckles goodbye. With many advances in cosmetic procedures, the good news is that you can completely get rid of your freckles and say hello to a perfect face. Read on to know more about what freckles are and how they can be managed.

What are they?

The skin contains a pigment called melanin which is responsible for the skin color. So, higher the melanin concentration, darker will be the complexion. In some people, however, based on genetic background, there can be areas of concentrated melanin deposits which become visible in an unbecoming manner, especially in fair complexioned people. These deposits are known as freckles or ephelis, which appear as light brown or flat black spots. The freckle formation is aggravated by exposure to sun, especially before the age of 18, and can be dormant during winter months. Exposure to UV-B light in particular has shown to increase melanin formation, making the freckles more prominent and darker. Though found usually on the face, areas like the neck, shoulder, and hands can also be affected – completely depending on sun exposure.

How to get rid of them?

Treatment is a two-pronged approach for freckles that is prevention and treatment. As mentioned above, freckles have a direct correlation to sun exposure. Avoiding sun and using maximum sun protection is the best way to avoid freckles, if you have a genetic predisposition. Avoid going out in the sun without using sun protection. A good sunscreen lotion with an SPF of at least 20, a wide-brimmed hat, a scarf, sunglasses are all essential when you head outside.

Treatment

If the damage is already done, then laser treatments are a great way to deal with freckles. Here is how it works:

  • After thoroughly cleansing the face, the eyes are covered and a thin layer of cooling gel is applied on the face.
  • The face is cooled by using a cooling device. A laser light is then applied in a series of short pulses on specific areas of skin where freckles are concentrated.
  • The melanin deposits in the freckles then break down without affecting the surrounding area.
  • A post-treatment laser cream and sunblock is then applied, and the entire procedure does not take more than 45 minutes.

The success rate of treating freckles with laser is quite high, leading to a freckle free face within a few months. Multiple sessions may be required depending on the age of the freckles, the size, the type and the color. Darker freckles will require more intense therapy naturally. In most people, 4 to 5 sessions with break of 3 to 4 weeks in between are generally required. Talk to your dermatologist today to find out if your freckles can be vanquished using this magical beam of light. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
