Scabies is just one of the many physical ailments Daniel Larson has obtained. Daniel began experiencing Scabies in early 2023, during his California Arc. At this time, Daniel was wearing the same clothing every day, not showering, and sleeping in porta-potties at night. All of these are risk factors for contracting this disease.

According to the Mayo Clinic, "Scabies is an itchy skin rash caused by a tiny burrowing mite called Sarcoptes scabiei. Intense itching occurs in the area where the mite burrows" [1].

Daniel Larson's scabies

In January of 2023, Daniel began displaying his scabies for his viewers to see, which created great concern for others in his community. Because Daniel's fingernails are long and filled with bacteria, scratching scabies put him at risk for infection, which can cause more health related problems. On top of his own health, scabies is a very spreadable disease. It was during this arc that Daniel went to Disneyland, rode many busy rides, and put many children at risk of contracting scabies.

Warnings of Daniel went viral on Facebook, and members of his own community became concerned of the possibility of a deep infection.

Daniel first sought medical attention the night after visiting Disney. He was officially diagnosed with Scabies and prescribed with an $80 lotion. Daniel went live on TikTok and received enough money for the medication, but instead elected to spend it on desserts at the Cheesecake Factory. He remained untreated for weeks.

Hospital Visit

The end of the Scabies Arc came in late January of 2023. Daniel posted an ominous video of him having extreme itchiness due to the bugs living in his skin. His scratches were so ferocious, that he caused himself to bleed severely. Within hours, Daniel sought medical help at an emergency room again, this time receiving a shot of Ivermectin and getting a washcloth bath from a nurse. After the drugs were injected, Daniel made a goodbye post to the creatures that had been living under his skin for the prior month.

Following this visit to the hospital, Daniel did end up getting a new t-shirt, and symptoms have died down. This isn't to say that the issue is gone, and considering Daniel’s overall circumstances, it’s not unlikely to assume that not all the scabies, or may eventually come back. Needless to say, it is not a good idea to make physical contact with Daniel.
