I used Dermisil, a non perscription cream and also a loquid I added to my bath water. Helped with the pain and also to dry them up. They also have a spray to use on the chairs U sit on and the carpet where you normally stand.

Scabie is a mite, a type of skin lice, they are caught from other infection people.

Treatment usually requires medications similar to those you would use to get rid of head lice. Your doctor can provide you with a prescription.
Most commonly used is a lotion called Lindane:

And yes, all clothing and bedding needs to be washed or sprayed, to prevent reinfestation.

Do you have any other questions?
