Does anyone know anything about Scabies?

I know a child that has them wondering if you knew anything about them.

  • scabies are little mites that can crawl under your skin and, of course, when they do they itch a lot! they present with small red, itchy bumps and are highly contagious. treatments are topical and oral medications. :)

  • I agree with msmarie. I onced worked a summer job as a teenager, and another teen had it. She had topical meds, and had to take a few days off, per MD. The manager said, "Sure, take as long as you need, don't come to close, we don't want to catch it."

  • I wonder where these critters came from and why his brother hasn't gotten them then. I just found out this child had them yesterday & that he had them for a few days of course he hasn't been in school for a few days either. The school nurse had said they weren't contagious but I see that they are. Thanks
