Scabies is spread from person to person by touch or contact with clothing or personal items of a person who has scabies. Mites can live for up to 3 days out of the skin.

Mites deposited on clothing die when clothes are washed in hot water and dried with hot air.

Mites responsible for scabies make deep tunnels in the skin, causing a very red rash that itches a lot. The itching is often more pronounced at night.

Typically, the rash between fingers, on the groin, between toes and around the wrists or elbows, but can be found anywhere on the body.

In children under 2 years, the eruption may make its appearance on the head, face, neck, chest, abdomen and back, as lines and curves whitish threadlike, tiny bumps red marks or scratches.

Scabies is treated using a cream or lotion that should be prescribed by your doctor. You may need to do 2 treatments, 1 week apart.

Your child may be itching for a few weeks after the end of treatment. The itching does not mean that the mites are still present.

Try not to use other people's clothing or bedding. As soon as you think you have scabies, treat it right away to avoid getting them over and over.
