I posted here a couple of years ago... i had drivem myself mad trying to rid myself of scabies... 4 of us in the house - treated 10 times over 6 months, wrapped EVERYTHING in plastic, scabies cream, ivermectin, bleach.... after seeing several doctors and 2 dermatologists, i just stopped . Was clear within the month!!!

Roll on to this last week. 10 year old comes home with a dermatitis type rash on back of hands. Hurts, but no itch. Really dry skin. Goes away for 2 days, then reappears. Doc said contact dermatitis.
2 days after rash, one of his friends mentiones that someone in their class has had scabies. I immediately start itching!
Mine is more of a burn/prickle than an itch, with a little swelling and pins and needles.Mainly on back of hands and going up arms. NO RASH.
This came on after cleaning the back yard. That was 3 days ago, no change. Im not really itchy anywhere else- any normal type of iych is heightened though because i 'looking' for it

Thoughts?? I feel the mental illness creeping in again!

Have your doctor test you for bartonella.
