Here is a quick mnemonic ” MITE BITE “ to remember about the Scrub Typhus Rash
Scrub typhus, also known as tsutsugamushi disease, is a bacterial infection caused by Orientia tsutsugamushi. It is transmitted to humans through the bite of infected chiggers, which are mites found in areas with dense vegetation, such as forests and grassy fields.
One of the common symptoms of scrub typhus is a rash. The rash typically appears 5 to 14 days after the bite of an infected chigger.
This can be valuable for patients as well as medical doctors, nurses & students doing their clinical rounds. You can also find it very useful for med exams like USMLE, NEET PG, FMGE, NExT & NCLEX exams
