Carli is a 2 month old infected with scabies I took her to the doctors they prescribed her with medicated lotion but where do I apply it?

In brief: Really

I have never seen scabies in a 2 month old in more than 3 decades of pediatric practice.
The meds we use for older kids and adults can be toxic when applied to infants. Without knowing what medicine you are asking about I cannot recommend you use it.
