YES: Scabies is an extremely itchy skin disorder that can be passed from one person to another. It is caused by an infestation with a parasite - the scabies mite.Most cases of scabies are probably caught from prolonged hand-holding with an infected person. The hand is the most common site to be first affected.You usually need to be in skin contact for 15-20 minutes to catch scabies.http://patient.info/health/scabies-leaflet
