It is caused by Sarcoptes scabei var hominis.It is a communicable disease which may be transmitted by skin to skin contact, through fomites.In such cases, I prefer to advise topical application of permethrin over body from.neck to.toe.You can take antihistaminics like levocetirizine for symptomatic relief.Visit your doctor so that he can examine you and give you a prescription.You can share my opinion with him.I hope it helps.Stay healthy
