Unlikely, but. . .: Inflammation, rash, and scratching has a potential to cause your body to degrade and absorb some of the tattoo ink in localized spots. Cure the scabies, don't scratch in the meantime, and watch those sexual contacts. There are worse things that can happen than your tats fading a bit. Read more

Scratching Causes: Scabies is caused by a mite which burrows into the skin resulting in a very itchy rash; spreads person to person.

How long before scabies scars goes away?

How long before scabies scars goes away?

Never completely: A scar forms when there is healing of an injury to the tissues. Remember that with almost all wounds, healing continues for months and months as we change the stress on the tissues. A scar forms as a result and may have many different appearances and colors. Any dark coloration may fade over time but the tissues never are the same and so some scarring will always be there.

Prescription: Prescription medicated creams are used for treating the scabies. The most commonly used cream is Permethrin 5%. Cream must be applied all over the body even if they don't have symptoms sometimes all individuals that were in contact with the infected individual needed to be treated. Cream is applied as a one-time treatment or it may be repeated in a week. For severely infected cases, some dermatologists may also prescribe Ivermectin oral medication. Itching may continue for 2 to 4 weeks after treatment begins, but it will usually disappear if you follow your dermatologist's treatment plan. This condition should not be taken lightly and is highly contagious so I advise you go see a dermatologist. Read more
