Pictures of Scabies Eggs


You can’t see scabies eggs with just your eyes.  You need some pretty strong magnification to see these microscopic dots.  But in case you were wondering what they look like under the microscope, I dug up some pictures of scabies eggs for you.

This first picture shows a skin scraping with the mite, eggs, and feces present.  Take a look…

This next picture shows scabies eggs after they’ve been treated.  They are black because they are dead.  They are the black large ovals.
