    Scabies is a skin condition caused by a mite called Sarcoptes scabiei. Female mites burrow into the skin and create a maze of tunnels, where they lay eggs and deposit feces. These tunnels are small, but sometimes they can be seen by the naked eye. Mites are attracted to the warmth and smell of humans, and they are most commonly spread through close contact with another infected human. There are different mites that cause human scabies and animal-transmitted scabies, and neither can live or reproduce on the other type of host.
