Hard to tell: It's hard to tell without examination. If you have (or your family) asthma, hayfever history and ezema in your childhood, the eczema you have now might be atopic dermatitis.

Atopic dermatitis comes and goes. ...Read more

Does ivermectin kill all the scabies I have on my body ? And how do I convince my family to treat themselves and the house ?

Does ivermectin kill all the scabies I have on my body ? And how do I convince my family to treat themselves and the house ?

YES: Treatment requires a prescription, typically of a topical medication such as: permethrins, crotamiton, or lindane . Ivermectin's use in scabies is effective but is "off label" ( ie. Not an fda approved indication). Convincing the family will be easy but space limitations can't do justice to this topic- go to the cdc website for the best answer-http://www.Cdc.Gov/parasites//scabies/. ...Read more
