  • If your Dr did not give explicit directions on how and with what to clean with call your local health department because scabies just like bed bugs do not react to regular cleaning products - before you use any more bleach get specific directions.  The first person I would call would be the gyno.  Babies are very reslient - call the dr and get advice.
