Hi Sarah,

Thanks for your question!

While I am no expert, I can relay what Dr. Herzinger discussed in his talk. Concerning seeing a patient in the clinic with scabies, there is no need to disinfect the entire home. This is true because typically only 5-15 mites are found on the body at one time.

This is not the case for patients who have crusted scabies, which is very contagious.
