Scabies is a contagious disease. One can get infected with it on close contact, share bed, towels and clothing with an infected person.
If you developed scabies rashes or in confusion You better take the following medications..
1. Permethrin 5% cream-e. g. Lotrix 5% cream-Apply on whole body (except head and neck) once at night and take a shower at next morning.
2. You should wash and iron your bed sheet and clothing after use of permethrin cream.
