The most commonly used cream is permethrin 5%. Wash underwear, towels, and sleepwear in hot water. Vacuum the carpets and upholstered furniture. Intense scratching can cause a secondary skin infection, such as impetigo, so if you get scabies, try not to scratch too much. :( I have this and it totally sucks. If you get any of the symptoms or are around someone with them, get treatment right away so you don't get them as well! They are beastly! :P Prevent scabies! D:
