Make an Appointment with our Pharmacist instead of waiting to see the GP. You can still get FREE NHS treatment if appropriate and get expert advice from a health professional.
Scabies is one of the conditions for which you can make a NHS Health Appointment. Scabies is a contagious skin condition caused by the infestation of a microscopic mite called Sarcoptes scabiei. These mites burrow into the upper layer of the skin, where they lay eggs and trigger an inflammatory response. Scabies is commonly spread through direct skin-to-skin contact, making it particularly prevalent in crowded environments such as nursing homes, schools, and households.
Scabies can be very uncomfortable so our Pharmacist can give you confidence that you’re treating your condition correctly.
