I don't blame ya Dee, I realize life is like that. If you tell anyone you have it your not going home or to a hotel with anyone. Use protection, & tell the person after lets take a shower. You should hang out if your at his house & wash the covers or sheets you were on. I know if you take a shower after sex you'll get rid of it. Don't go for an all night sex session. Within a few hours they can't get into the body. It's like a rocky mountain tick, it takes time for the mites to attach & dig into the skin.
Maybe the problem is your computer area & your shoes & clothes. Anything that can be put in a freezer should be for 24 hours. Cold kills scabies like hot does.

Try a spermicidal like is used on trojan condoms. Seems odd but it helped for me.

I've been having bumps too, it will disappear and reappear on the same place days or weeks apart. I've discovered that using Cetirizine tablets 10mg work I take it at night and then the morning the bump is smaller or gone.

I was diagnosed with scabies about 3-4 weeks ago, I used "ascabiol" once a week and pharmacy produced cream twice a day. These nodules have however continued on my shaft, scrotum and worst of all on my "head"/tip. Any signs of scabies have disappeared off of the rest of my body except mentioned places. Should I continue to treat simply on my genitals? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Yours Sincerely.

If you aren't discovering any new nodules, I would suggest stopping treatment for a week or so to allow your skin to heal. If you keep putting scabicides & topical creams on sores, they're never going to heal.

Well, when I see someone scratch a spot more than a couple times, I'm going to have a red flag go up. There's that saying that goes, "I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy", well, I can say I would absolutely wish this on my worst enemy, in a heart beat.

ive been having this issue for a year befor i seen a specialist no doctor could tell me what was happening after std tests for 7 months,,i just have a question for anyone that has had this before,,, i was worried about herpes for the longest time,,and still kind of am,i showed the specialist my rash and she thought right away it was scabies so did i it looks just like it,but first my past symptoms

-just have a few tiny itchy bumps on the penis shaft (spaced out..not grouped)i get them every few weeks(and twice it was extreamly itchy for a few weeks)other wise it was never itchy till half way thru the year

-took up to 7 months before i noticed a large rash climbing up my left arm from the elbow and bumps on both hands that didnt go away (rash and bumps weren't itchy or anything for that matter)

-(important to me)Guys how often do you get the bumps back on your shaft? and i had gotten my first itchyness in weeks after treating my self i applied the 5% perthilin cream to the area that was itchy,,the itch went away the next morning i found 3 bumps/pimples a little distance out side were i applied the cream,,would that be normal? or maybe reinfected? i never had them any were else but the same area down there this is the first time that happened,,the rash and bumps on my arms is gone since my first treatment

either way here is my questions - with your guys experince does this sound like post scabies or possible herpes? i never had a scraping to know for sure my specialist and i both thought right away it was from that when i saw the large rash
help please

Hello Dr S Goswami
I have had a very bad experience with scabies. In August 2010, i developed scabies as my parents were visiting me from India and they had scabies. I applied Permethrin once and it seemed to heal but re-appeared few days later. This time my husband also contracted (Oct 2010) it as our dear GP didnt expalin that i had to change the linen/sheets of the entire house. So, this time we both applied permethrin and we took precaution. My husband also got it second time and he used permethrin second time. After two applications, scabies disappeared but itching continued for several days. And in Nov10, we both developed post scabetic nodules on our lower abdomen (exactly the panty line) and groin area. we showed it to our doctors but she prescribed some creams that never helped. it was really embarrassing especially at work as those nodules will each itch intensely every now and then.
After several appearances and disappearances, my nodules went on their own in August 2011, it took almost a year for them to disappear completely.
But my husband's nodules got worse as he scratched them badly out of frustration and they got bigger. His nodules were also exactly on the underwear line on his waist. We showed to a private doctor, he took a biopsy and declared it was B-cell Lymphoma, hell broke upon us and we were bewildered. I was not convinced as i had the same nodules but doctor wont listen. Then we contacted the Lymphoma specialist (best in Europe) and he examined the first biopsy again and did some additional tests. He then told us that it is a classic post scabatic nodule and it will go on its own. Thankfully, as he said the nodules disappeared in mid 2012. Now, every few weeks sometimes a red papule appears on that rash which itch slightly but disappear on its own. Its been 2 years now. i go crazy and feel very scared whenever that papule appears.
hopefully it will also go away soon. Do you have any suggestions/thoughts on this papule that appears sometimes? i will be grateful if you could please let me know your thoughts.
Many thanks

I'm wondering if anyone has experienced my issue. I no longer have scabies, confirmed by dermatologist, but like others kept thinking I was getting reinfested because I would get red nodule bumps on my genitals, head of penis and scrotum, not on shaft.
When the nodules would clear I felt comfortable to have intercourse with my partner and within two days the nodules would reappear and I would think I was reinfested. And treat again.
After seeing dermatologist three weeks ago and got the all clear and he explained what I was getting was post scabies nodules, and to use topical if dots reappeared. Well after 4 weeks of no nodules ventured into that arena again and bang nodules reappeared. I'm assuming the friction with intercourse is causing the reoccurance. I've decided that I will start using condoms for a while to take away the friction aspect and see if that works.
My question for anyone, males, does anyone else experience this issue when after intercourse and what timeframe did it end??
The post scabies bumps on the head, shaft and scrotum of the penis are very common. But lets face it, it is also very discouraging. I first tried neem soap on them, it actually inflamed them, making them worse. Then I tried tea tree oil, it made them look better for one day and burned.

Finally, my dermatologist gave me "ApexiCon & Cream" (diflorasone diacetate cream USP 0.05% emollient) made by Pharma Derm. I applied it twice a day, didn't see any results until day 4 and then the bumps really started to disappear days 6 and 7. Day 8, all the bumps were completely gone.

I hope this helps those with post scabies nodules on the penis shaft, head and scrotum.
Good luck and keep your spirits up!

Hey not sure if you check this thing anymore but did that cream put an absolute end to the bumps?

So I just want to say that after months of fighting these bumps I finally got Apexicon E Cream and it worked. It got rid of them in about 4 days. I tried many other steroid creams before this one and none worked except for this. Sometimes they can still flare up but they are not as bad and the cream makes them go down again. If you're struggling with scabies bumps I strongly suggest trying this cream out. I found it by looking on this thread and I just want to confirm that it did work.
