It was scabies, which is transmitted person-operon.

dentist  did you get scabies from "burrows" and "night itching" +  
pg32  My question is where do you get scabies originally? I knew it was transmitted person-to-person, but thought it has to originate somewhere (a pet possibly?) so I went with pets. The internet only seems to say that you get scabies from another person with scabies, so the question remains: where do people contract scabies from? +

You think scabies bc they say he has severe itching esp. NIGHT, burrows was another hint, with scabies commonly seen in armpits, chest, wrist, groin (basically areas with frequent skin to skin contact, minus the face). I cant seem to find where one can originally contract scabies, to spread it person to person though. The internet just emphasizes that its contracted via person to person contact
