Q) My daughter picked up scabies at her day care center. How should I treat it? And what can I do to make sure she doesn't get infected again? A) Scabies is a skin infestation by tiny, parasitic insects called mites.

treat your environment and everyone in it. Did you use at least two consecutive doses of each med, and did you use perm on face and scalp?
