Dermatologist 's  Response
Hi,

Scabies is highly infectious and contagious skin disease caused by sarcopties scabie. I would recommend you to apply ivermectin lotion at night daily for few days. It may be repeated if needed. Take ivermectin 12 mg once a week for few weeks. Take a bath in dettol mixed water. Let your clothes wash in hot water. Take all steps to stop the relapse. Improve hygiene and immunity.

Hope this helps.
