Is there a way to distinguish the difference between atopic dermatitis scabies and pityriasis rosea?
See your doctor: These rashes can be distinguished by history, exam and perhaps testing.See 1 more doctor answer
Scabies: Scabies has the following:itching, especially at night rashes, especially between the fingers sores (abrasions) on the skin from scratching and digging thin, pencil-mark lines on the skin mites may be more widespread on a baby's skin, causing pimples over the trunk, or small blisters over the palms and soles. In young children, the head, neck, shoulders, palms, and soles are involved.
Big: Difference. You need a diagnosis first. See a derm.See 1 more doctor answer
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. However, if you live in a dorm, share bed with some one, and they happen to have similar itching problem, you might have scabies. Itching from scabies may linger for months after "cure". Atopic dermatitis comes and goes.
My dr says I don't have scabies/bed bugs but something is biting me she said contact dermatitis but I know it's big bites they are on forarm low back?
See dermatologist: It is time for you to consult your dermatologist to settle this issue. Bug bites and contact dermatitis are totally different. The former usually show up as itchy bumps, the latter flat patches with or without blisters.
Currently I have severe itching with no rash. Previously I had a rash, was misdiagnosed with scabies then with dermatitis, given steroids which helped?
Eczema: Is commonly known as the "itch that rashes" as opposed to rash that itches because the itching precedes the rash and it is the scratching that results in the presence of the rash. People with allergic problems, regardless of the type, asthma, hay fever, food allergy, all these are associated with eczema. The best treatment is to find out what you are allergic too. For now try Claritin (loratadine) and see doc.See 1 more doctor answer
Red, very itchy rash on forearms. Have photos. Diag as contact dermatitis but could it be scabies? Don't see burrows or tracks
Try: A virtual consult. Since the forum is for general questions, your question is more appropriate for one-on-one encounter; in which case photos can be shared. There are several common causes for itchy rash like this and answering a few questions will certainly help to clarify what is likely.
Toddler bug bite on cheek next day rash stomach down thighs, pedi said dermatitis and now scabies cuz now to wrist, p.a says no, no itch no fever?
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)?
Went to the ER & was diagnosis w/ contact dermatitis. Feared it was scabies. I now have pus filled yellow blisters on my hands. Could I have been misdignosed?
Ulcers vs itchy rash: Herpes rash is little blisters that break open to form an ulcer and is tender when touched. It is caused by herpes type 1 & type 2. Scabies is caused by a "mite", a bug, that tunnels under the surface of the skin. Scabies is not painful but itches like nothing else. Scabies doesn't form ulcers. Herpes is often on the face, genitals, or fingers. Scabies is often on the hands, arms, waist, or legs.See 1 more doctor answer
Scabies vs. Herpes: Herpes usually presents as painful, grouped or clustered small blisters. Scabies are usually very itchy and demonstrate linear red lines suggestive of burrowing. See a dermatologist and get an evaluation and / or biopsy for a definitive answer and treatment.See 1 more doctor answer
Location of sores: Scabies causes intensely itchy small bumps that tend to occur in skin folds (under the arms, below the waistband, between the fingers) if these area are not involved, your child probably doesn't have scabies. Scabies lesions will also occur in a line or track at times.See 2 more doctor answers
Closely related: Canine scabies also known as sarcoptic mange is a highly contagious infestation of sarcoptes scabiei canis, a burrowing mite. These mite can also infest other mammals for example cats, horses, sheep, and pigs. In humans scabies is due to a closely related species which is adapted to humans (sarcoptes scabiei, variety hominis).
By where the rash is: Most eczema occurs on the face, inner elbows, behind the knees, on the wrists, hands, and ankles. It is usually dry, red, itchy. Scabies tends to occur on the waist, arm pits, writsts, genital area, lower buttocks, front of the knees, sides of the feet, and on the sides and in between the fingers. It is always more itchy at night. Check for some photos of the rashes on medical websites.
