Scabies is caused by tiny mites and it is a contagious condition. Itching occurs as an allergic response of body to these mites and may take 2-3 weeks to completely subside. Treatment of all the members of family and close contacts is needed for complete cure. Permethrin application is repeated after 7 days of 1 St application and not on consequent days.
