What's the matter, Jeannie, you could not think of a name? you just used random letters. come on.... you can do better than that....Hi,
I had scabies from May 2010 - November 2010 and I recently got red bumps on my knuckles today that resembles scabies but they don't itch at all and some of them go away.
It concerns me cuz i've gotten about more than ten in the past couple weeks and some of them scar and some of them go away. i'm not sure if it's still post scabies or if i am re-infected. i've been showering twice a day and i put tea tree oil/hydrogen peroxide on affected areas.
my insurance doesn't cover dermos and my primary doctor prescribed a lot of scabies treatment when i had it last year, so i'm sure she won't prescribe me anything.
my main question: would post-scabies still show up 4-5 months after treatment is over?
my main question to you, jeannie, is that, if you so believe in getting all your help from doctors, then why are you on here? why not ring your doctor? the only way to tell is if you bought yourself a cheap scope and have a look for yourself. raised bumps means active scabies.
you can go to a low income clinic and have the doctor there take a look. pay out of pocket. oh, that's right, you are a med student, but asking us for help. I think you can answer your own questions on this forum, TROLL!!
