The scratching from scabies and lice can cause the onset of secondary bacterial infections. In certain situations, a more severe form of scabies can develop called crusted scabies. Other complications can include spreading the infestation throughout the household as well as to other areas of the body.

Partners and Re-infection

Sexual partners should be tested for both scabies and crabs if you have it. However, it is possible that your doctor will recommend automatic treatment for them.
