Hello. I am going someone can help me. A little over a week ago my daughter brought home a note from school saying scabies was going around. I remembered her saying her tummy was itchy alot. I looked at it And saw tiny Brown scabs from scratching. Took her to Dr who said she didn't think it was scabies and if it got worse in a week to use the cream. Well that night I bathed her in neem oil, used neem soap, lotion and shampoo just in case. She had not itched since and her scabs are gone. I believe it was just dry skin add her skin trends to be very dry. I did the same but had a reaction to the oil and it caused me to itch like crazy until I showered again.
A few days later my knocked got very red, dry and irritated. This is normal as I get this during the winter. But then my stomach started itching like crazy. Tuesday I broke out in a rash, even had s bump that opened up when I scratched. Wed am I woke up and rash was gone with the exception of a few tiny Brown scabs. Went to the derm who said I had exzcema on my hands and scabies would get worse, not go away on its own. The tops of my feet also started itching, but no burrows or bumps. Since then I have started feeling pin pricks or bites on various places.. bottoms of feet, thighs, knees, chest a few times. And I itch more in b the evening. However, this does not interfere with my sleep. I have one red bump on my breast but it does not itch. My husband thinks I'm crazy and it's all in my head. Its more annoying than anything. I am also 6 weeks pregnant. Certain clothes make my skin feel prickly. Any ideas?

It could be but usually scabies spread. I would wait a week or two and see if it continues to itch and if it spreads. Meanwhile if u think it may be dry skin, then you should moisturize and see if it's that, I use virgin coconut oil. Im pregnant and my scabie rash was much worse than my familys. Even though i wasnt the first infected
