View Alla Gordina, MD, FAAP Scabies in internationally adopted children 6/27/2006

“I have heard that my son’s orphanage has a problem with scabies and that he is more than likely going to have them. What is the best way to be proactive about this? Should we treat him and us as soon as we meet (if he has them)? We may be traveling with our older daughter (4.5yrs) so we are worried that she would catch them.” ” My daughter came home from Russia last month with them, and after a delay in diagnosis I did the Nix treatment with her. It seemed to work well and the sores disappeared, but now it's two weeks later and new ones are appearing. A friend told me she'd heard there was a different strain of scabies in Europe that our usual medications might not treat."
