Scabies----a contagious skin infestation caused by the mite Sarcoptes scabiei

Magnified view of a burrowing trail of the scabies mite. The scaly patch on the left was caused by the scratching and marks the mite's entry point into the skin. The mite has burrowed to the top-right, where it can be seen as a dark spot at the end.
