Diagnosis of Scabies

To diagnose scabies, your skin is examined by your doctor to find out the signs of mites, which include characteristic burrows. After locating a mite burrow, a scraping of that particular area may be taken by your doctor to examine it under a microscope. This process can determine the presence of the mite.

A scabies ink test (or Burrow Ink Test) can also help to spot burrowed paths in your skin created by the mites. To do this test, your doctor can drop ink from a fountain pen onto an area of the skin that appears to be infested. They then wipe away the ink.
