Scabies is a very itchy skin rash (especially at night) caused by a reaction to a tiny mite that burrows under your skin.

Scabies spreads easily between people through close skin-to-skin contact and won’t go away without treatment.

Scabies is usually treated with a cream called permethrin which kills the scabies mite. Get this from your pharmacy or on prescription from your doctor. You need enough cream to treat everyone in your household, even if they don’t have any symptoms.
