My sister is 6 and she goes to kindergarden. She was recently diagnosed with scabies. I would appreciate some information about how does this condition occur and what is the best treatment. Thank you

Scabies is a common skin infection. It causes small itchy bumps and blisters due to tiny mites that burrow into the top layer of human skin to lay eggs. Scabies is contagious, and is usually transmitted by skin-to-skin contact and the infection spreads more easily in crowded conditions and in situations where there is a lot of close contact. The most common symptom of scabies is severe itching, which is worse at night or after a hot bath. A scabies infection begins as small, itchy bumps, blisters, or pus-filled bumps. These bumps break when scratched and itchy skin may become thick, scaly, scabbed, and crisscrossed with scratch marks. The most commonly affected areas of the body by scabies are the hands and feet, the inner part of the wrists, and the folds under the arms. However, it can also affect other areas of the body, particularly the elbows and the areas around the breasts, genitals, navel and buttocks. Scabies needs to be treated by a doctor, usually by prescribing a medicated cream or lotion to kill the mites. The cream is applied to the skin all over the body, not just the area with the rash. It must remain on the skin for 8 to 12 hours before it can be washed off.
