Scabies: 33 year old gentleman with scabies infection treated with oral therapy now with new red rash. You may require treatment with oral and topical therapy. You may be extremely contagious and you should avoid scratching the scabies rash. Contact your doctor and read the CDC decontamination protocol for your close contacts, bedding, clothing,etc. http://www.cdc.gov/parasites/scabies/prevent.html
