My son is at the doctors and his father just texted me saying he has Scabies! :( I don't know how he got it but when he cought it he was always at Grandma's house. Now I'm starting to get the same type of rash he has, I looks like bugs bites to me and then some of it doesnt, is it contagious??

Very contagious.



Wash everything in your house that's fabric. Take cold, cold, cold showers.

:shock:



I have never had it, but watched that show "monster inside me" and they featured it. Apparently it's contagious, very painful and takes a while to kick.



hopefully your dh has more info when he comes home from the dr.



Poor guy :(

Yes its contagious. You all will most likely be treated with a cream. Even those family members who are not yet showing signs of scabies may be treated as a precautionary measure.
