Scabies can easily transmitted both directly and indirectly. Scabies was neglected by people because people thought thah this disease wasn’t a life-threatening disease, however this disease can lead to some complications such as impetigo, celullitis, abscesses, even sepsis, in the case of S. pyogenes, post-streptococcal glomerulonephritis and acute rheumatic fever can happen. In resource-poor countries, outbreaks of acute poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis coincide with outbreaks of scabies and may contribute to development of chronic kidney disease and subsequent renal failure.
