New Bumps After Permethrin Treatment

Can a rash from scabies spread after permethrin treatment of the mites are killed? Just did treatment last night, rash on cheek now, not itchy

Scabies spread after 2xpermethrin treatment- new burrows/lines/clusters/bumps with tiny grey spots, how can I kill them?Doc just said use steroidcream

Give it another week, and your sites ought to be healing. Re-infection is a possibility if bed linen and clothes have not been cleared. ...Read more

Itchy rash recurring yearly from a horrible poison ivy patch 2 decades ago. This time with severe facial swelling. 2 wks in new spots daily?
See a dermatologist: Are you SURE of the diagnosis? If it is from ivy, it is an allergic reaction which can appear only on areas of skin exposed to the sap from the plant. Why have you not destroyed the ivy? Why are you exposed? You can get relief with clobetasol gel. Get a 60G prescription. If widespread, especially on face, I use prednisone: a 50mg tablet every other day for 3 or 4 doses. Learn how to recognize pois ...Read more
No: The manufacturer recommends to leave it on the patient's hair for 10 minutes.

Keep in mind that there is resistance to this type of drugs, thus follow up with pcp is important. ...Read more
