My derm can't tell if I have atypical scabies or atopical dermatitis.I get relief but not cure from oral ivermectin and oral immuran, please help?
Hard to tell: It's hard to tell without examination. If you have (or your family) asthma, hayfever history and ezema in your childhood, the eczema you have now might be atopic dermatitis.

Rashes: Rashes are difficult to diagnose when a patient is not in front of me but I can say that scabies causes intense itch in most patients. I'm not sure an insect bite on cheek is associated with the rash, perhaps a coincidence. If there are changes in detergents, cleansers, or introduction of a new food, then that has to be taken into consideration. Any travel (sand fleas, bed bugs)? ...Read more
