scabies can survive w/o being on a human for 24 to 36 hours. Clean the hard surfaces you have been in contact w (like furniture). Vacuum floors, rugs, mattresses & upholstered furniture. Med prescribed by health care provider are usually needed to treat scabies. Creams include: Permethrin 5%, benzyl benzoate, sulfur in petrolatum, & crotamiton.
