During her visit to the clinic, she asks a staff nurse, “What should my family do?” The most accurate response from the nurse is:
    A. “All family members will need to be treated.”
    B. “If someone develops symptoms, tell him to see a physician right away.”
    C. “Just be careful not to share linens and towels with family members.”
    D. “After you’re treated, family members won’t be at risk for contracting scabies.”

Correct Answer: A. “All family members will need to be treated.”

When someone in a group of persons sharing a home contracts scabies, each individual in the home needs prompt treatment whether he’s symptomatic or not.

Options B, C, & D: Towels and linens should be washed in hot water. Scabies can be transmitted from one person to another before symptoms develop.
