The itch; a contagious disease of the skin in man and certain of the lower animals due to the presence of Acarus scabiei, which bores its way into the skin, forming little burrows in the epidermis the course of which, in certain situations, especially about the hands and feet, the penis, and the nipples, is apparent upon the surface in the form of little curved or straight lines of roughened or broken cuticle, while in all situations the presence of the parasite is attended with intense itching and skin lesions due to scratching. The typical locations are: the back of the fingers, the flexures of the wrists, the axilla, the nipples, and the penis. [Lat.]
