There are 2,400 new cases of scabies and crabs a year.

Scabies (the itch) isn’t actually a genital infection. However, it is often dealt with at GUM clinics because of the fact that it is frequently acquired through being in bed with someone who has the condition.

How is Scabies Caused?

It is caused by a little mite, which is just about visible to the naked eye. If your skin comes into contact with the skin of somebody who has scabies, some of the mites may well move across from the other person’s body to yours.
