What are the first signs of scabies?
You might find that you have itching in the webbing between your fingers and on the inside of your wrists where you may also see faint lines of burrows beneath the skin. These are tiny, raised, grayish-white or flesh-colored lines caused by the mites digging their way into your skin.
They generally appear on the hands and wrists first because this is normally the first point of contact with someone who has scabies by either shaking hands or touching their skin on other places where the scabies mites are present and where they can transfer from.
People ask are scabies contagious, yes they certainly are.
