Scabies refers to contagious skin diseases caused by scabies mites infecting the epidermal layer of the skin. In daily life, people can often be heard of scabies. Scabies is not a very serious disease, but it spreads very quickly and has a great impact on the body.

Most scabies can be transmitted to yourself by contact with people or things, so you need to be vigilant. So what is scabies all about? Caused by the following reasons:

1. Trauma infection

Sometimes accidentally scratching the skin can also induce scabies. For example, when the skin barrier is damaged, the papilloma virus will adhere to it. After a period of time, it slowly lurks into the body to multiply and spread, thereby attacking the immune system, causing people to get sick Therefore, if you accidentally fall or knock, you need to disinfect it in time, and don't give the virus the chance to be infected.

2. Sexual confusion

5. Smoking and drinking

There are many causes of scabies, among which smoking and drinking are the most common factors. Because the immunity of people who smoke and drink for a long time is very poor, this will allow the scabies virus to take advantage of it, greatly increasing the probability of contracting scabies.
