my child had gone to the dr and we were treating her for eczma. then 3 to 4 weeks later i called the dr to tell him it had not gotten any better but it had gotten worse... so he had me take my daughter to the dermotoligest ( spelling?) while there he did a skin scraping to find out she has scabies. so we got her treated i called everyone to let them know about it so they can get treated to... when i told her dad about it he said oh thats what that is i have it to.,.. i told him he and hsi family will need to get treated as well. i found out lastnight that he and his family never got treated and my daughter has been there since sunday ( today is friday). i told him he needs to get medical treatment and he told me that he will get turned down because he owes them $400 i told him by law they can not turn you down. and now he is still refusing to go to the dr and get treated. he refuses to let me pick up my child to treat her again. so i called the court commisioner and i am waiting on a call back from them.. i am so lost on what to do from this point. do you think i will be able to pick my daughter up and keep her from him untill he gets treated so she dont end up with them again and bring them to school?

How are they transmitted? If he doesn't get treated, what is the long term impact? Will hand washing help? I would do the research first. Then discuss it with him and ask him how he will prevent re-transmission if he doesn't get treated. He can't want to harm his child. Perhaps he thinks its harmless?
