|Scabies and HIV
Feb 21, 2002
Thank you so very much for your question and answer forum. I have read that scabies is a common skin infection in HIV infected people. However, I would think that an HIV+ or HIV- person would have the same likilihood of contracting scabies. It seems that if you were in contact with the mite you would get it no matter who you are. Does being HIV+ make you more likley to become infected with scabies?
