Before age 30 I never had scabies. I've now had them 3 times in the last 8 years. Is that abnormally high? Am I more predisposed to them now?

In brief: Scabies

Are you positive these were scabies? If yes, would advise that it is not hard to get re-infected.
Scabies is usually spread by close physical contact. It can also be spread by using the same bedding or clothing as someone who is infected with scabies. It can also take a lot of effort to get rid of scabies infestation.
