Hi,

If it was scabies then it is better to treat all the family members because it can spread from one person to another. Also along with the treatment even the household things like the bedsheets, and clothes need to be washed properly with hot water.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Sushma Yadav
