Multiple conditions: You have a number of conditions which may cause an intense rash, and if there is a response to ivermecin, scabies may be under control, but may recur. Wash sheets in hot water, monitor temperature and consider a virtual visit with Healthtap. Photos may be uploaded during the visit.
