Dermatology Image based MCQ
Answer: A - Scabies


Signs and Symptoms

Although the entire body may itch, the most common locations for the lesions:

The areas between the fingers (finger webs)
Inner wrists, inner elbows, and armpits
Breasts of females and genitalia of males
Navel (umbilicus)
Lower abdomen
Backs of knees

In young children, the lesions of scabies are most commonly seen on the:

Trunk, arms, and legs
Head and neck
Palms of the hands and soles of the feet

The most obvious signs of scabies are pink-to-red bumps, which can look like pimples or bug bites and may be scabbed from scratching. However, the tell-tale lesion of scabies is the burrow, which is small, subtle, and difficult to detect. Typically, a burrow appears as a fine, thread-like, scaly line (3–10 mm long), sometimes with a tiny black speck (the burrowing mite) at one end. When looking for burrows, it may help to use a 2- or 3-power magnifying glass.

Scabies is intensely itchy, especially at night.
