It is better to use PERMETHRIN 5% CREAM to get rid of scabies.
The cream should be left on for at least 8 hours.
Reapply the cream to the hands if they are washed within 8 hours of treatment.
The whole body should be washed thoroughly 8-12 hours after application.
And no need to be covered if you are using the cream. But without treatment, scabies will worsen and is highly contagious.

Until you and all the things that you come in contact with are treated, its necessary that you don't go near another person. Scabies are very contagious and the little bugs like to find a new host.
