Sir iam suffering from scabies even I used medicines for a week iam feeling itchy rashes and itchy pimples like on my penis please sir what should ido?

It takes 2-3 weeks: It takes 2-3 weeks for scabies symptoms to subside after successful treatment. Even though the treatment killed the scabies mites, your body is still reacting to the dead mites, eggs, and droppings in your skin. Just wait it out; your symptoms will clear up in the next couple of weeks. ...Read more

Pinky Tiny Pimples-like Rashes on the back of both hands & starts to feel itchy after few hours...spreading to arm slowly...can I take Cetirizine?

You could but..: A better choice might be diphenhydramine (Benadryl) but the cetirizine is less likely to make you drowsy so you can start with that and if it doesn't work try the diphenhydramine. You can also try 1% hydrocortisone cream that you can get at the store on the rash to see if that alleviates the itching and the spread of the rash. ...Read more

I have a pimple like rash only on the outter part of my arms it not itchy but it is really bothersome. What is it? I have had it for about a month now

Rash: It's very difficult to diagnose skin rashes without a picture, but it could be patches of eczema (which don't always have to itch). If it's symmetric on the upper arms, we think of things like keratosis pilaris, which doesn't itch, but can be cosmetically bothersome. It doesn't sound like an urgent concern, and getting it checked in the next 1-2 weeks should be fine. ...Read more
