Arthropod infestations

Arthropod infestations

  • Centipede bite
    A centipede bite is an injury resulting from the action of a centipede's forcipules, pincer-like appendages that pierce the skin and inject venom into the wound.
  • Millipede burn
    Millipede burns are a cutaneous condition caused by some millipedes that secrete a toxic liquid that causes a brownish pigmentation or burn when it comes into contact with the skin.
  • Pediculosis
    Pediculosis is an infestation of lice (blood-feeding ectoparasitic insects of the order Phthiraptera).
  • Trombiculosis
    Trombiculosis, trombiculiasis, or trombiculidiasis is a rash caused by trombiculid mites which is often referred to as a chigger bite.
  • Myiasis
    Myiasis (/ˈmaɪ.əsᵻs/ or /maɪˈaɪ.əsᵻs/) is the parasitic infestation of the body of a live mammal by fly larvae (maggots) that grow inside the host while feeding on its tissue.
  • Head lice infestation
    Head lice infestation (also known as pediculosis capitis, nits, or cooties) is the infection of the head hair and scalp by the head louse (Pediculus humanus capitis).
  • Demodicosis
    Demodicosis, also called demodectic mange or red mange, is caused by a sensitivity to and overpopulation of Demodex canis as the animal's immune system is unable to keep the mites under control.
  • Pediculosis corporis
    Pediculosis corporis (also known as "Pediculosis vestimenti" and "Vagabond's disease") is a cutaneous condition caused by body lice (specifically Pediculus corporis) that lay their eggs in the seams of clothing.
  • Linguatulosis
    Linguatulosis is a condition associated with the organism Linguatula serrata.
  • Porocephaliasis
    Porocephaliasis is a condition associated with species in the closely related genera Porocephalus and Armillifer.
  • Tick infestation
    A tick infestation is a condition where a tick acts as an ectoparasite.
  • Scabies
    Scabies, known as the seven-year itch, is a contagious skin infestation by the mite Sarcoptes scabiei.
  • Tungiasis
    Tungiasis (also known as nigua, pio and bicho de pie, or pique) is an inflammatory skin disease caused by infection with the female ectoparasitic Tunga penetrans (also known as chigoe flea, jigger, nigua or sand flea), found in the tropical parts of Africa, the Caribbean, Central and South America, and India.
  • Hypodermyasis
    Hypodermyasis is a parasitic infection by the larvae of warble flies, most notably Hypoderma lineatum and Hypoderma bovis.
  • Acariasis
    Acariasis is an infestation with mites.
  • Arthropod bites and stings
    Many species of arthropods (insects, arachnids and others) regularly or occasionally bite or sting human beings.
  • Scarabiasis
    Scarabiasis is a condition where beetles temporarily infest the digestive tract of humans.
  • Mange
    Mange /ˈmeɪndʒ/ is a class of skin diseases caused by parasitic mites.
