Scabies treatment
mentalgg 在天空部落發表於02:21:15 | 未分類
Scabies is an ectoparasitic infestation of the skin caused by
the human itch mite, Sarcoptes scabiei var. hominis. The
actual incidence of scabies in Los Angeles County (LAC) is
unknown because single occurrences of typical scabies are
not reportable to the county health department. Outbreaks of
scabies infestations in health care facilities (HCF) and single
cases of atypical scabies are reportable to the local health
department and present a continuing public health problem in
LAC. While regarded as a nuisance disease by many health
care professionals, scabies outbreaks in HCFs can be extremely costly in terms of
direct and indirect costs of outbreak management, poor public relations, and
discomfort and anxiety of affected patients, employees, and their family members.
Furthermore, secondary bacterial skin infection is a common complication of
scabies infestation that, in elderly or immunocompromised individuals, can lead to
sepsis and even death.
A number of factors influence the extent of scabies order permethrin cream online transmission within a facility,
including the mite load and the required level of care of the source case, as well as
the duration of the exposure period. Each HCF scabies outbreak is unique and
requires an individualized approach. Due to the increase in the number of
outbreaks reported by HCF in LAC, these guidelines were developed to provide a
rational approach to the prevention and control of scabies. They are intended to
assist infection control committees and administrators of HCF in developing a
scabies prevention and control program for their facility, and they are based on best
practices, state and federal scabies guidelines, current literature and the extensive
experience of Acute Communicable Disease Control Program (ACDC) staff.
II. GENERAL INFORMATION
A. BIOLOGY OF THE SCABIES MITE
Infestation begins when one or several pregnant female mites are transferred
from the skin of an infested person to the skin of an uninfested person. After
transfer from the skin of an infested person, or, rarely, from fomites, to the skin of
an uninfested person, the adult female mite travels on the skin surface at the rate
of about 1 inch per minute seeking a burrow site. After finding a suitable location,
she burrows into superficial layers of the skin, forming a slightly elevated narrow
tunnel where she deposits 2 to 3 eggs daily during her 4 to 6 week life span. The
eggs progress through larval and nymphal stages to form adults in 10 to 17 days.
The adults migrate to the skin surface and mate. The males die quickly and the
females penetrate the skin and repeat the cycle. The mite requires human skin to
complete its life cycle and is unable to survive off the host at room temperature
for more than 3 to 4 days.
