Hello,

I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.

I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.

Scabies is not contagious 48 hours of complete symptoms resolution. So once the symptoms go away completely; 2 days later, it ceases to be contagious.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
