Me and my girlfriend have scabies like symptoms, I just went to the Dr. and the assistant looked at a bump on my hand and said it was most likely scabies, I was prescribed the ointment. My girlfriend just informed me she had some in her mouth this morning. It says scabies can t attack your mouth, so what could this be??

Apply permethrin . These creams are applied from the neck down, left on overnight, then washed off.

Ivermectin, an oral medication, is an antiparasitic medication that has also been shown to be an effective scabicide
Antihistamines, can be useful in helping provide relief from itching

Wash linens and bedclothes in hot water.

Treat sexual contacts or relevant family members
