In brief: 4 weeks
You will typically not feel or see anything during that 4 week period.
You should be treated if you were exposed to prevent infection.

In brief: Sarcoptes scabiei
Scabies are a contagious parasite which crawls onto another person's skin.
It generally takes weeks down to a few days fort this to start producing symptoms. Experts have said that there is a real paucity of scabies in the areas, but when i make this diagnosis, I have usually found a mite in almost every spot.
