Can you die from scabies? My daughter may have scabies she is a virgin and she doesn't want to go to the doc the bumps only appear when she itches
Scabie is not lethal: However, I would really encourage that she see the physician as her condition doesn't sound like scabies. Scabies looks like lines of burrows on skin made with little mounds or blisters. They cause itching which is often worse at night. Although they can be anywhere on skin they like going into skin folds (waistline, axilla, breasts, between fingers, feet, wrists, knees, elbows,buttocks & genitals). ...Read more
Scabies on my feet itches to much and the cream that doc gave me seems to not be working cause im up all night with itches please help a shot maybe?
Treat the source: Scabies is a challenging problem to treat. Not only do you need to use the proper cream (ie: Elimite or permethrin) for the proper amount of time, you need to treat the source by washing all clothes, linens, towels, anything in contact with your body in hot water. Anything not washable needs to be sealed off for 3-5 days so the mite does not reproduce. Ivermectin is an oral medication. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not anaphylaxis: Anaphylaxis refers to acute allergic reaction with loss of blood pressure, passing out, tight airway, sudden difficulty breathing. The cause is usually known. You have something quite different. You need a diagnosis-----scabies or whatever----and your Dr should call a dermatologist for you to be seen on an urgent basis. ...Read more
Permethrin cream: You need to get proper treatment with Elimite cream (permethrin). And you also need to get rid of the source of the scabies which are the eggs and mites. These can hide out in the bed and linens. Everything needs to be washed and anything unwashable needs to be sealed off with plastic so there's no contact with your body for 3-5 days so the mites and eggs can suffocate and not repopulate. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Could I have scabies? I saw a doc but he wasn't interested but I have a rash. Hives itching blisters etc, i'm taking phernargan for the itching.
Yes: The question of whether you can have scabies is simple...Yes. These infections typically involve 4-6 mites. They can cause amazing rashes. You can do a shaved skin bx for diagnosis or find a burrowing tract. I've been fooled several times by scabies so its not a total no-brain er. Ivermectin oral or Permethrin topcal is used to eradicate it. ...Read more

Wash clothes, towels & sheets in hot water & dryer. Use ironing as needed. Itching usually persists for a while after treatment. ...Read more
