The microscopic human itch mites burrow shallow tunnels into the upper layer of the skin.1 The human itch mite is an eight-legged bug that is less that 1mm large, and is nearly impossible to view without a microscope.3 The mites then live and lay eggs in those burrows. An infected person will experience itching and a rash to the affected area.
