In brief: Still too common

Scabies happens in every town and every city in the United States.
No parts of the country are immune from scabies. Even one case is too many. The key is to treat patients early, when they first start itching, so they don't keep passing scabies to others. Also, treating entire families at one time helps get rid of the mites.
