Diagnosed with scabies but Noone in the house has it and I feel she was misdiagnosed. The rash is on her face and none between fingers or toes.?

Return To Doctor: Scabies is caused by a mite that burrows into skin causing inflammation/itching. Close contacts can become infested however it is possible for household members to remain unaffected. A questionable diagnosis can be confirmed by microscopic exam of skin scrapings. See your doctor to discuss your concerns and for re-examination. Your doctor may also consider referral to a Dermatologist. ...Read more

I have white bumps inbetween my fingers. They are itchy. A doctor from online suggested scabies but they are not red or a rash. Clear fluid comes out?

Vesicular dyshidrosi: Vesicular dyshidrosis is one of the most common and benign skin conditions. It occurs when there is some difficulty in sweating appropriately and the fluid accumulates in tiny blisters on the fingers. These may itch and when they dry up the skin may peel. Sometimes low grade steroid creams may help, but should not be used for long periods. Other non-specific treatments are available. ...Read more

I was recently treated for scabies (last week) and now I have watery blisters appearing on my fingers. Is this a sign of scabies got treated twice over last 8-9 days, areas are clearing up but now I have clear watery blisters on the insides of my fingers

I was recently treated for scabies (last week) and now I have watery blisters appearing on my fingers. Is this a sign of scabies got treated twice over last 8-9 days, areas are clearing up but now I have clear watery blisters on the insides of my fingers

It: It certainly could be scabies, but watery blisters on the fingers is often a sign of "dyshidrotic eczema". This is form of eczema that is common on the hands and fingers. Treatment with a hydrating cleanser such as cerave hydrating cleanser, moisturize with cerave cream, and possible treatment with a steroid ointment would be helpful. It is possible that you have a reinfestation with scabies although that is difficult to determine without a skin scraping. I hope that helps. ...Read more

I work at a drs office. I just found out that a patient last week had scabies. I took his pulse by putting fingers on his wrist. Could I get infected?

Not likely: If you were going to get infected, it would have happened already. Any linens in the office that this patient used would be OK now, as the mites live only about 3 days away from human skin. Obviously, if you have developed any scaling, itchy skin lesions in the past week, your concern would be valid ...Read more

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

Pruritis.: Itchiness without rash is called pruritis. There can be many reasons for this. You need to see a dermatologist for a full workup. In then mean time, try sarna over the counter lotion as many times per day as you need to help with the itchy and start a daily regimen of zyrtec (cetirizine). Take consistently without fail to see if changes. The blisters on the hands may be dyshidrotic eczema. A derm can diagnose. ...Read more
