can scabie mites eggs still hatch off the skin?

After what?: Not sure what your question is. You have some question of hatching ability of scabies eggs. If you used the medication prescribed to treat the scabies, any unhatched eggs should become unviable, meaning dead and unable to hatch. If you have any doubt, repeat the original treatment 1 week after initial treatment. If different concern, please clarify question.

Wouldn't matter: Without an immediately available source of nutrients/moisture ( the skin) the mite would die.
