increase scabies

Scabies on the increase
Radio Sintonia:

Cases of scabies increase in Fuerteventura.

Carolina Domínguez, dermatologist at the Parque Hospital alerted today in the microphones of Radio Sintonía of the increase in cases of scabies in Fuerteventura.

Domínguez explained that more and more people are coming to consultation for this pathology. "We are surprised at all the cases we are having. It is becoming almost a silent pandemic because of the stigmatization of the disease, always associated with poverty or lack of hygiene." In this sense, the dermatologist indicated that nothing is further from reality, since we are all exposed to this disease that is spread by skin-to-skin contact or through fabric garments.

"People think that it was already eradicated, that it no longer existed, that it was from another century and for nothing," said the specialist. From the pandemic when we were all locked up with the confinement, the disease made a boom of clear contagion, and since you could not go to the hospital, the diagnoses were delayed.

When the doors opened and the confinement ended, the cases increased by peak and "now we are seeing the consequences of a stigmatized pathology that people are not able to recognize that they have it or tell their relatives".

On the other hand, the dermatologist cited the monitoring of moles and atopic skin as reasons for the greater number of consultations in the facilities of the Parque Hospital in Puerto del Rosario and Corralejo.
