They spread from person to person usually from direct physical contact, though not necessarily. They can live in dust, bedding, towels, or clothing, just like any other mite, still transmittable for over three days. They are easily contracted from one person to another in crowded conditions, and more readily in less then hygienic of circumstances.
Because of their love for dark crevices, they are often found in the slits between the toes, armpits, in the fold underneath the breast, navels, genitals, and buttocks. Because they are commonly found in the genitalia and buttocks they are considered Sexually Transmitted, though you could get them from bed hopping, regardless of sexual encounter -Or another person being present in the bed at that time at all.
The condition is often compounded. The broken skin contracts other bacterial infections, most common, impetigo. Impetigo is a very contagious skin infection, said to be contracted more readily in those with scabies. It begins as tiny blisters, eventually bursting to reveal small wet patches of red skin that may ooze yellowish-brown pus. The bursts weep fluid that dries into a tan or “honey-glazed” scab that encrusts the soars.
The definition of “Scabie” is long- too long. But it gives the idea of how disgusting these parasites can be, giving illustration to the slang.
“Scabie” is an adjective describing someone, situation, or possibly generalized to an object. “Scabie” can be used synonymous with the word “Sketchy,” though more specific, and far more of an affront than a mere “Sketchy.”
A “Scabie” person, for example, is especially parasitic, doing something to another to their own benefit, or praying upon others. The wrongdoer transgresses all morality in a complete disregard to others. “Sketchy” is someone or a situation that you don’t trust, maybe that you raise an eyebrow to, where “Scabie”... If someone is “Scabie,” that’s down-right dirty!
“Scabie” is not only distrustful, but underhanded, cheating, scheming, rotten. -A person that will swindle you dry if they got the chance. The “Scabie” offender is Scandalous! Shameless! They are your scam-artists, liars politicians and lawyers.
In addition, because of it’s STD distinction, “Scabie” often can intend sexually sordid as well.
People: I don’t go to that bar anymore. It’s a total meat-market. -All those Scabie guys hanging on ya... Nasty.
Place: My roommate wanted to move there. Just last weekend some guy stoped me and asked if I wanted a bump. The West Sides, totally Scabie.
Dramatized: That bastard drank all my beer and ate all my macaroni and cheese. Dude is so Scabie sometimes.
