Thanks for writing to us.
You and your child might have got scabies from your pet. Kindly get your pet treated.
Apply permethrin cream overnight just once to treat yourself and your child. As it is a prescription drug please make it a point to meet your dermatologist prior to starting it.
Hope that helped.
Take care
