Contact Burger King's corporate office and tell them they have an employee at that location who is working with untreated scabies. If you don't want to go that route, you can probably file an anonymous complaint with the county health department regarding the situation. I'm sure they'd be very interested in the fact that management is knowingly allowing an employee with an infectious skin condition to work.

wow.. how can she brought scabies? did she rub elbow with the guy? isn't it very closed contact transfer? well, how did you know that she brought home the bacon? does anyone in the family has already scabies? your daughter for instance? well, yes just bleach everything but make sure you rinse them well too ... to avoid further problem. and seek a doctor in case there is someone in the family who has it already. the doctor is still the best person to consult to.

Here is a site with home remedies for scabies. http://earthclinic.com/CURES/scabies.html That is so disgusting that the guy isn't made to do anything about it.

I would have all my friends and family call the place (anonymously, of course) as concerned customers and complain about the guy that's always scratching. Then I'd call and say I had some kind of itch and I got it from there and I'm seeing a lawyer. The situation is just so absolutely disgusting and unacceptable. I feel so sorry for your daughter. It's hard enough to get a job, let alone one you like. I wonder what the other employees think about it? That site has good remedies for everything. Thanks for commenting!

If the guy has a transferrable skin condition and he has given it to your Daughter at work,She can't be the only one..Certain medical conditions should never be brought into the workplace,and this sounds like one of them,though I'm no expert.. Check out the food hygiene regulations where you live and see what the health inspectors position is on this..The guy might not have to lose the Job,but he better get that treated before he does lose it in case they'd have to shut the place down otherwise!

If the condition is a public health risk,and the Guy wouldn't take responsibility for his problem,the Employers can't just turn a blind eye to the situation in case they'd end up being prosecuted themselves..Whether he walked or was fired,it's good to hear the situation was resolved.I'd just hope that Guy didn't simply walk into another similar job (or any other one where he'd be in a position to transmit the condition!) without having treatment first...

I'm sorry I don't know how to help, but that is SO messed up that he went to work with something like that and gave it to other people! He should most definitely be fired! Especially in a place where they are dealing with food! I hope somehow he gets fired and I hope you get rid of those bugs!
