Hey everyone! I'm so thankful that I found this forum, what a great support system for people suffering from this nightmare!

So I have a question, maybe ya'll can help out!

I have moderate contact with someone (I clean their home, laundry, meal preparation, NO prolonged contact) and spend about 10-20 hours in their home a week. They have been diagnosed with scabies, more than once. Lately I have been feeling this generalized creepy-crawly feeling ALL over my body, like something crawling then little pinpricks! It is SO odd! I don't have any itchy rash, just two pimple like bumps on my thigh that itched a little the night I got them, they seem to be healing up. Anyways this feeling just won't go away!

Is this a symptom of scabies? I am really worked up over it, it is finals this week for school and this is all I can think about. I can't sleep, I just lay awake feeling prickly. Not too itchy, just crawling sensations.

I went to my walk-in clinic and the doctor knew less about scabies than I did, so that wasn't reassuring!

PLEASE help!!!

Sarah, insist that the Clinic do a skin scraping and look at it under a microscope to fully analyze
your condition.
My scabies started with similar symtoms and sensations.
my prayers are with you.
all the best,
