This is an itchy skin problem caused by teeny mites that dig tunnels underneath
the skin's surface. Scabies
mites have eight legs and a round body and are pretty hard to see. When they're fully
grown, each mite is no bigger than the size of the point of a pin. But for such small
critters, they sure can make you uncomfortable! The doctor gives kids who have scabies
a cream to help them stop itching.
