Had my sister to visit at the weekend who had a skin infection (told by GP) Has seen a different GP today and been told that it is actually scabies She did lots of cuddling, bathing and changing of DS1 (9 weeks). I have 2 questions
1) what is the incubation period of scabies 2) Other than keeping my eyes open for a rash on his torso is there anything else I should be watching out for?
Scabies is very contagious and tends to first present in the webs of the fingers as little scratch type rash. I am not sure of incubation period, but if it definatly is scabies then the chances of ds catching is prob high .
Treatment is easy though with a lotion. Maybe ring gp and ask advice, not sure whether you can pre treat ifswim
Not sure about breastfeeding. As for letting everybody know, I don't think there is anything you can do until you know. You can't just stay in for 2 wks just in case. Alos I think it has to be pretty close contact to catch. They don't jump so just skin to skin.
my neice had this and i was allway around her she caught it from her dog . and we all was treatd with a lotion which is used to treat nits to but dont worry hun its easley fixed hope u get it sorted any more nfo let me kno w
