Do I have a bee sting infection? Been 3 days and still itches a lot. Is turning purple and sting site is whiteish and slightly raised. Also warmer.

Bell venom allergy: It's much more likely that you're allergic to the venom the bee injected into you. Itching is a hallmark of allergy - and if the area is inflamed like that, it's probably all allergy. I would try putting some ice on it (10 min on, 10 min off), take some benadryl or other antihistamine every 6 to 8 hours and see what happens. If you develop a fever, or the rash area extends, you need to show a doc. ...Read more

I never do sex. There a stinging on my scrotum. The point that itching hurts when walk its so painful. No other symptom I can't see a doctor. How get rid o?

Probably a cyst...: The clinical profile with limited information as described leads me to think about possible infected sebaceous cyst of the scrotum, which in time will rupture and drain itself but will reappear over time becuase its lining is still there, that is just like a pimple with recurrent infection.
Sorry for being unable to see doctors. But nonetheless, if in doubt, still go to see peofessional.

Absolutely.: I strongly disagree with the previous answer. Venom immunotherapy is absolutely effective for patients with bee sting allergy. Vit, administered to the proper patient, in the proper doses, by a bc allergist, reduces one's risk for anaphylaxis to "bee stings" from 40-70% risk to the low single digits. ...Read more

I: I assume you are talking about scabies infection caused by the human itch mite, sarcoptes scabeii. These infestations are caused from contact with an infected person (or their clothing, towels, linens, etc.). The best way to get rid of this infestation is to see a dermatologist and get a prescription such as Permethrin cream. There is also a pill that can work to clear the infestation. It is imperative that any persons that are itching in your household also be treated. Lastly, all linens, bedsheets, etc. Used in the last 48 hours must be laundered. I hope this helps! ...Read more
