Immature mites can survive one week [6]. The mites and mite products (faeces, eggs and dead parasites) generate an immediate or delayed (type IV) hypersensitivity reaction with scabies symptoms typically starting 3-6 weeks after primary infestation and 1-3 days after re-infestation [7], [8]. In classical scabies there are under 5-15 mites/host. Crusted scabies is characterized by a much higher burden of mites
