Hi, this is Angie for Pro Beauty at Pro Pilates in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and today we're going to talk about how to get rid of skin mites. First, I want to tell you that I am an aesthetician. My main focus is on skin conditions such as acne, dry skin and helping folks with anti-aging. I'm not a dermatologist, a doctor of skin disease so if you feel that you do have skin mites also known as scabies, you should consult your dermatologist. What skin mites are is an itch mite that burrows under the skin's surface to lay eggs and then they hatch and then they travel to the surface and grow into mites. The breakouts are red scabs around the skin and they can be itchy bumps. If you feel that you have this, you should consult your dermatologist. In the meantime what you can do because this disease is contagious within humans, you will want to clean everything around you and have very good hygiene skills. The first thing you want to do is purchase a pair of gloves and wash everything around you. You want to use gloves to clean everything around you and most importantly to keep your skin clean using an antibacterial soap and you want to bring this to a lather. You may need to scrub everywhere around your body particularly in the axilla, the armpit area, behind the knees, around the hair, that's where those skin mites like to hide. Often these skin mites are transferred in places such as warm damp environments where people use hot tubs, saunas so just use proper hygiene if you do go to some of these public places by placing a towel down and taking a shower afterwards. And now I'm going to apply this antibacterial soap using my gloves onto my client. So, you just want to go in circular movements to a lather using warm, lukewarm water and then rinse. And continue to do this until you notice that the red bumps are going away and again seek your dermatologist' advice. And again, this is Angie at Pro Beauty in Pro Pilates at Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Thank you.
