Post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP)
Once the several week incubation period is complete, intense itchiness may manifest itself diffusely (usually begins in the body’s folds; armpits, buttocks, groin, etc.). This itchiness is typically worse at night. Minute burrows several millimeters long (corresponding to the migration of the parasite under the skin’s surface) appear between the fingers, on the wrists and ankles. Papules (pimples and bumps) may appear in the region of the armpits, the breasts, buttocks and genital organs. This latter manifestation is caused by an allergic reaction to eggs laid by the parasite.
