Can you kiss someone with scabies?


Scabies is a highly contagious skin infection caused by a tiny mite called Sarcoptes scabiei. It can spread from person to person through skin-to-skin contact, including kissing. Therefore, if someone has scabies, it is not advisable to kiss them until they have completed their treatment and are no longer contagious.

It is important to note that scabies can be treated effectively with medications such as permethrin cream, so it is recommended that anyone who suspects they may have scabies seek medical attention as soon as possible.
