scabies is contagious and any of your family may get it if proper precautions are not taken. its good that u maintain a good hygiene. apply local creams and take the prescribed medicines. you will be cured of it

HI
YEAH, IT WILL GO AWAY BY ITSELF AS LONG AS YOU MAINTAIN GOOD HYGIENE. KEEP AWAY YOUR FOMITES AND SEGREGATE THEM FROM YOUR FAMILY. THEN NO ONE WILL HAVE SCABIES IN UR FAMILY. USE OINTMENT LOCALLY

hello there
iits very difficult to prevent a scabies disease from spreading to our close contacts. maintaining good hygiene can only control scabies to some extent. medicines aand local creams have to be taken. use soft milk soaps

About your family to catch it ot not..The skin-to-skin contact needs to be for a reasonable time to catch the mite. You usually need to be in skin contact for 15-20 minutes to catch scabies. Therefore, you are unlikely to catch scabies from an infected person by casual short contact such as a handshake or a hug. The more mites there are, the faster they can spread to another person.
2nd …they will not go alone a medical treatment must be continued fully to the end if infection.
Maintain high hyegine habits.
Wash clothes and towels at high temperature 50•
