Hello,
Diagnosis of scabies is made by scraping the skin and viewing the material under a microscope to see the characteristic mite or eggs. Treatment is specific and consists of permethrin topical and ivermectin oral. The role of infrared saunas in treatment of scabies is not medically proven and not doctor recommended.
I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and regards.
