and BoB, my daughter and the baby both had the large white bumps that popped up a week after scabies, they lasted for several weeks ( hands and feet )
I'm thinking it's post scabies cause I see no new burrows, and the white blister that was on my hand last night is now gone. But I'm still getting lots of random bumps that appear in random spots. They are a light red color and itchy a lot! Also no one else in the house is itchy. I'm just a little worried, and if it is post scabies do you have any tips for calming down the itchy?

Flu d out my daughter and I had scabies on Thursday. Treated whole family with Perm 5% that night. My husband found spots while he was treating on his back. Cleaned and cleaned the house. Now we are all still itchy but the rash looks better. But my husband is getting new spots on his back but they look different. Like a cluster of pus pockets?? Is he still infested? And my dr said I should only have to treat once? Should I tell him I want to treat a 2nd round??

Ichfest,you should ALWAYS do the second treatment and make sure all your bedding is washed and dryed on hot. Bob, any antihistime will help you, my dr gave me zytec and the neem soap and lotion calmed my skin down atleast 80 percent, try theraneem maximum strength soap. a girl @ the dermatologist told me about this soap and it really helped me. The itching drove me crazy, I live in Charleston SC, and its hot and humid here,I could hardly go outside without itching. I think the heat makes scabies worse, it did for me

Ok I will call the dr. So the rash is getting dry and flaky and getting lighter in color. It's still itchy but not as bad. What can I put on it to help with the itching that won't irritate my skin more? Regular lotion? My skin is now just really dry. I am ready for this nightmare to be over.

Knocka on the doora,

Neem doesn't cure scabies, just as sulphur soap doesn't cure scabies. Why is is "great" for scabies.
The appropriate meds for scabies is Elimite Permethrin Cream and Ivermectin Stromectol tablets.

Neem doesn't do jack.

I just whispered this into your ear. Don't tell anyone. Just between you and I.

I got treated 4 months ago with premethrin cream for scabies so I don't itch anymore but I still get bumps on my genitals and my hands. I've had countless visits to different dermentologist but they all give me steroid creams (which are not working). I have no idea what to do. Help is needed.

Can't seem to find the answer to this anywhere, hoping someone else has some experience with this. I have had this curse for 2 years. Misdiagnosed due to initial location Dr said it was herpes. I know, nice right? Anyway I think it is now gone or almost gone, no more bumps or itches for more than week or so, BUT, I still have the electric shock type feeling deep in my skin. What is this? I have always thought it was tunneling, but could it just be residual nerve damage? Still happens everyday, but I have no other symptoms. Does anyone know what this is, or have any experience to go by? I know it is not caused by the meds, because I felt this back before I even had the correct diagnosis and started treating. Any insight is greatly appreciated!

I contracted Scabies 2 months ago I believe from my EX-BOYFRIEND. I had no idea what was causing my breakout..on my FACE!! Prior to Scabies I had perfect clear skin. Little to no make up needed. Friends kept asking me what was going on with my face but I thought it may have been a new hair color I was allergic to. Nope, went to the Derm and was told SCABIES. I could have died!! Talk about embarrased!! I was treated with Perm..probably too much because I used the first tube EVERY night until it was gone from my face to the bottom of my feet. I waited 7 days and treated again. Home top to bottom sterile! Its been a few months but I do still itch some but the re-occurring breakouts have me worried. I know I'm Scabies free but mentally...I'm still a prisoner. I've lost weight, I don't want people to hug or touch me. My Derm also prescribed Bactrim*(sp) orally twice daily for 30 days. Scabies has changed my life...in the worst way!! I even noticed one either coming out of my finger nail or attempting to go in. Finally got that sucker out!!! Mentally I'm getting stronger everyday. I hope this info helps someone. Yes new bumps appear but I'm using a topical steriod and staying PRAYERFUL!!

Seems that people should first make sure it is scabies they have. can only be checked by a doctor/skin scrape for sure.

Next, you have to do the treatments for that condition, which is permethrin.

If it is anything else, then the treatments probably won't work!

I am sure it can be tough in the summer as we can also all get bites from something else when we go outside, but can't really stop doing that. Bring on winter! If bites keep happening then, then we know it is scabies or another inside mite.

I'd give you my story but I am sure it is nothing like yours and I think people confuse themselves that way. Go see your doctor/dermatologist, and keep insisting they hunt for a cause until they find one.

I don't think you need to freak out as much as the others about getting rid of the mites. Keep asking everything in hot and drying on hot of course, and vacuum regularly. That's it.

"Ive had followup biopsies and there is no scabies but if you look at my skin, it looks like its still there, I woke up this morning with a new rash on my back"

Dermatologists are the worst choice for infections because they tend to treat only the skin when 99.9% of the time the skin problems are just symptoms of deeper issues.

The thing to do is get a western blot Igg and Igm test for borrelia and a PCR test for Bartonella. You'll need to find a doctor that knows how to read these tests.

No scabies in the biopsies doesn't mean you are not infected with the infections that mites pass on to humans.

Post scabies is not nearly as intense as it is made out to be on this forum. It is used to explain something by doctors that they don't generally understand though.

I feel for you! I have had this stuff for 8 long years. If everyone doesn't get it and treat, you just won't get rid of it because everyone has to help. If you treat, you won't get a diagnosis, so try not to. I know you have to suffer until you get a diagnosis. I'm 53. I just can't clean like I use to. Read this too. Look this article up on the Internet. It's " New International Organization to Tackle the Burden of Human Scabies". This article is on the site Medicalnewstoday. Doctors just aren't a whole lot of help. They don't know crap about Scabies and how you suffer alone in a family.
