At American Skin Institute, we approach the treatment of scabies with precision and compassion, focusing on eradicating the mite infestation while minimizing discomfort for our patients. Scabies is a contagious skin condition caused by the Sarcoptes scabiei mite, which burrows into the skin and lays eggs, leading to intense itching and rash. Our dermatologists begin by conducting a thorough examination to confirm the diagnosis and assess the extent of the infestation.

Treatment at our office typically involves prescription topical medications, such as permethrin or lindane, which effectively kill the mites and their eggs. We may also recommend oral medications in severe cases or for individuals with compromised immune systems. Additionally, we provide guidance on environmental measures to prevent reinfestation and offer supportive care to alleviate itching and promote healing of the skin.

With our expertise in dermatology and infectious skin diseases, we ensure that each patient receives prompt and effective treatment for scabies, restoring comfort and skin health. Our goal is to provide comprehensive care that addresses the root cause of the condition and supports long-term recovery.
