My 2 yr old foster child came to me with this condition and also lice. The medication seemed to work good so far. It has been 3 days. It did seem to burn in some spots. She also had clotrimazole betamethasone for the itch. She was reated at the ER for this.

I was diagnosed yesterday, and I don't know if it is mild case or not, but feels like is getting worse. I keep using tea tree shampoo to wash with and hydrocortisone creme along w/ medication. I hope this doesn't really take a month to subside, but I am glad I got the medication and diagnosed before it got worse.

I am a nurse who developed four spots of red itchy dots on my left inner forearm. I found out that my other co-workers complained of the same rash and theirs were worse than mine. I got treated w/ permethrine right after I discovered that it is scabies. However, 3-4 days after treatment my rash got worse-they spread everywhere. almost everyday I re-apply the cream after my 12 hr. application. I a ... Show Full Comment
