Well, 5 weeks ago, I was diagnosed with scabies. At first, I really had no idea what it was, so I went directly to the doctor and showed him my infected hands. There were irregular burrow tracks made up of tiny blisters or bumps on my skin and I just can’t help scratching them. Then I was diagnosed with scabies. My doctor prescribed me Elimite so as to get my infected spots cleaned up. 2 weeks later, all of the symptoms disappeared and I went back to work with relief. However, the symptoms reoccurred 1 week ago, only worse this time. It’s not just my hand that has been infected, they can also be found in the armpits and around my waist. I thought it came back just because I hadn’t washed them up last time, so this time I washed it really hard, hoping that it will go away as soon as possible. However, the more I cleaned them, the more new bumps and new tracks appeared. Right now, it has already reached my buttock. I went to the Dr. for help but he just told me to be patient and keep washing it. I think I’ll just follow his advice for the moment.
I had scabies over 4 years they were eating me from the inside out. Ivermectin for internal infestation and permethrin lotion for the entire body, nose and all. Bag all unnecessary clothing. Vaccume daily, new bed and furniture or wrap in plastic for few months. Wash clothes with amonia.
