There has been a diagnosed and treated case of scabies among our students at FRMS. Scabies is an itchy condition caused by tiny mites that burrow under the skin and found mostly between fingers and toes. The itching is usually worse at night. It is possible that your child may have been in contact with scabies. If you suspect that your child may have scabies, it is important to contact your child’s doctor or primary care provider. He or she can make the diagnosis and prescribe the appropriate treatment. Scabies will not go away on its own.
