Good evening, I would like to ask about the cause of the discharge from the skin affected by scabies, so what caused the discharge, and what fluid is it?

Hi AT,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Scabies is a layman's term used for scabies, which is a skin infection caused by the Sarcoptes scabeii mite. This disease is very susceptible to occur in people who live in densely populated environments, including Indonesia. The method of transmission of this disease is also very easy, namely through direct or indirect contact with other scab sufferers. This transmission can not only occur between humans, but also between humans and animals that suffer from scabies. Children, the elderly, and people with immune system deficits (for example due to diabetes, HIV, malnutrition, taking long-term steroids, or undergoing chemotherapy) are more at risk of contracting these infections.


When infecting the skin, the mites that cause scabies dig burrows that resemble tunnels to then nest under the epidermis (outer skin) and remove toxins. In this way, the mites will stimulate an inflammatory reaction on the skin which is characterized by skin that feels itchy, feels warm, reddish, swollen, and secretes fluid (generally resembles pus). As for this pus fluid can burst and come out when it is large enough, or also if you experience irritation, for example due to scratching or excessive friction with clothes. If this fluid then comes into contact directly or indirectly with other people, the risk of transmission is very large. Furthermore, an outbreak of a rash caused by scabies can leave red, black, or whitish marks which are generally more difficult to heal than the original rash.


If you experience symptoms of scabies, you should immediately see a doctor or a dermatologist. Enough through a physical examination, your general practitioner will be able to identify the cause of your complaint and then determine the appropriate treatment. If it is true what you are experiencing is scabies, then several types of medication, such as anti mites, anti-itching, and special soaps or ointments are likely to be given by the doctor so that your complaint will improve immediately. Also balance the use of these doctor's medicines by always maintaining personal hygiene, namely by taking regular baths, changing clothes (used) regularly, and diligently washing hands and feet.


Hope this helps ..
