Yasha Levine, editor of the Moscow-based “eXiled” website, wrote an article yesterday where he detailed his bout with scabies following a trip to an Occupy camp — and the two days in a Los Angeles jail he spent as the result of it... ‘You have scabies,’ said the doc, sucking in his breath through his teeth and shaking his head. It took him no more than 30 seconds to diagnose my condition. ‘The track marks are a dead giveaway,’ he said, and pointed out a couple of elongated welts about a half-inch long creeping up the side of my right ring finger. These ‘tracks marks’ were actually burrows made by mother-parasites as they tunneled right below the surface of my skin and laid eggs in the process... As I stared at my hands in disgust, the doc moved to the sink and violently scrubbed his hands with medical soap.
