Can you touch someone with scabies?


Yes, scabies is a contagious skin condition that can be spread through direct skin-to-skin contact with someone who has scabies. The mites that cause scabies burrow into the skin and lay eggs, causing intense itching and a rash. The mites can also be transmitted through sharing clothing or bedding with someone who has scabies. It’s important to seek medical treatment if you suspect you have scabies, as it can spread quickly and easily to others
