Since the past 2 years i only had sex with one woman..My situation goes like this, i had sex with my girlfriend 8 months ago, right after that she went out of town for 8 months..and i got scabies, got treated ,when she got back had sex with her again got scabies again.

She never showed any symptoms of scabies, no itching, nothing,she is perfectly normal, she thinks i am cheating on her.. which is not true..is it possible she can only be a carrier for scabies and not affected? please help

Hi Sam
I am not sure really but i was in a relationship for 7 yrs no one else either. We are still good friends also. But he had crusted knuckles, elbows and knees and sadi it was from working in the cold. but he never had it like i did if he had it. But it looked like pictures i have seen on net almost identical, and he still claims he hasnt got it because he had no itching or bites like i had. Read up on Norwegian scabies i think that its possible & i do remember reading that under the crust lives thousands of scabie. But i had not been diagnozed with it either Doctors said it was dry skin,excema,but you dont get that type of itch from dry skin. iT TOOK ME 3 MTHS to get a visit to dermo and i had it healed by then with permithrin. But my friend still has his crusty knuckles but treats them with benzl occasionally. You dont need to sleep with a person to catch them either but if you sit i a chair they have been sitting in for any length of time there is a possibility one could have come off them & onto you. Apparently it takes about 6 weeks for the symtoms to show if it is the first time and if not sysmtoms show very quickly on the second infection maybe only a day or so. I dont know if i have been of any help but go to the other posts and check them out and ask others for their comments & advice.Best of luck. Jilly

This area of scabies has not been well documented i believe some people can carry it and have very few symptoms, with crusted scabies apparently there is allmost no itch this is due to an auto immune system problem they cant produce the anti bodies that kill the mites,these people are incredibly contagious and really should be in hospital as they would really stand no chance of curing it them selves.

People that have normal scabies develope a rash which is your immune system producing anti bodies (that creates the itch) to kill the mites,now on that basis i'd say that there must be varying degrees of reaction to scabies based on there immune system response.

Fact is if you have scabies and you've slept with her she will have scabies! if she's is adament she doesnt have it and you have DEFINATLY been diagnosed with scabies then she has to treat!

Hope this helps.

Yep. That's why they say everybody in the household needs to treat at the same time, whether or not they show symptoms. As far as the girlfriend goes, if she doesn't want to treat, then stay away, you can get it back. (I think crusted scabies is different, they do have crusts, it's noticable), the people who don't itch with crusted/Norwegian scabies are severely disabled or have another disease or they have taken steroids and the itch is non-existant, so they don't scratch, but others can see their crusts even though the affected person may not feel them. Gee, I mean, I HOPE that non-reactors don't have more mites than regular people, but I'm ruling nothing out at this point. That is a scary thought.

I might be one of those people too! I haven't found anyone else on the web saying this, but I have a friend who came down with scabies and then I started dating a guy and he got something (might be scabies, not sure yet) and his sister started itching. I am going to treat myself. i suppose I have mild symptoms. Interestingly I am also NOT allergic to mosquito bites (or very mildily alelgic). I always thought mosquitos just didn't bite me. One day I watched a mosquito bite me and then fly away and I didn't develop a bump there either. It might be related. is she allegic to mosquito bites?

My boyfriend started showing symtoms of what the Dr. Called scabies, 3 mos. ago, sneezing terribly, sores w/trails came approx. 1 1/2 mos. ago. No skin scraping was done yet it looked & behaived as scabies. We both treated ourselves at the same time, did all that your suppossed to do. It was gone, as was I for 3 days. Once we slept together his signs & symptoms all came back, again, I showed no signs but treated myself & my home again. My daughter stays w/ me a lot & she sleeps in my bed & she hasn't gotten it. I'm going insane, I truly love & trust him. I know he didn't mess around. An I a carrier or what type of doctor should I see to determine this? Any info will be a huge help.

I got scabies last summer, and the girl I think I got it from she doesn't show any signs either, but I got them. I'm not as bad, but when you still itch after the 6 weeks is over with, do you still have them or is it just what is left behind? I need to know, and we are going to get sexually active here soon.
