Scabies: A highly communicable skin disease caused by an arachnid, (itch mite) Scabies is transmitted by direct contact with infected persons.
it is very similar to lice. Just like your kids when they go to school, whenever you have many people in a confined area if someone has it when they come in the jail, (that is not always readily seen on booking) someone may transmit it to another inmate.
