This woman presented with a rash composed of pimple-like irritations on the abdomen and thorax due to canine scabies. If an animal is infested with scabies, or mange, and comes in close contact with humans, the mites can get under the skin causing itching and irritation. However, this form of scabies is mild, and the mites die in a couple of days without reproducing.
