Family & I contracted scabies from our dog. Can we use sulphur soap to help get rid of them? How long should it stay on in the shower? Safe for 1yr old?

Yes, but only kills: Live mites. Animal scabies mite does not reproduce on the human host, so a few days should take care of it. For human to human scabies, the sulfur soap will not kill the eggs, so the treatment will have to be repeated for several weeks. I recommend pymethrin lotion applied overnight and repeated in a week. It is safe for infants over a year old. See the label on one product: http://www. Cuticareproducts. Com/scabies_treatments_s/1820.htm ...Read more

Mites in Pregnant: Yes. Sulfur soap is safe. Better if you find a cream or ointment with Sulfur 6% to leave on and repeat in 7-10days. But, It would be best if you use this concern to start your prenatal counseling. A Health care provider will help you to monitor this problem and will be sure that you and the baby are doing well. With mites the other people living with you have to be treated as well or it'll repeat. ...Read more

Urine Odor: A variety of things can alter the smell of your urine. The characteristic sulfur smell is attributable to certain foods such as apsaragus among others.

So if your urine is also funny looking and u are experience bladder discomfort, see your doctor. ...Read more

My wife recently started having constant itching all over her body. She does not have any rashes on her. She has not changed any medications, soaps,?

See a Doctor: There are many conditions that cause diffuse itching without rash. Most of these situations probably represent early stages of what will eventually cause a noticeable rash. These conditions include allergies, dry skin, liver and kidney disease, and certain B cell malignancies such as lymphoma. Keep her skin moist, use cool compresses and try an anti-histamine (which will also help her to rest). ...Read more

You: You likely had an allergic reaction to the soap you used. Try over the counter Hydrocortisone cream to the external vaginal area. If this persists you may be dealing with a yeast infection, you can then try a yeast infection cream. If you still have symptoms visit your doctor again.

Iam with fair complextion but iam not satisfy with my complextion please please suggest me any skin whitning drug or soap which is available in india?

Sunscreen: There is nothing that will permanently give you a fair complexion, unfortunately. If your complexion is already fair, then your main goal is to keep it that way by using a broad-spectrum sunscreen spf 50 or higher and stay out of midday sun between hours of 10 am and 4 pm. Any creams or meds that you use to lighten complexion can actually lead to mottled pigmentation and more problems. ...Read more

Does provigyl contain sulfur I am allergic to sulfur drugs and I have been on provigyl for years but now developing blisters on my hands

No: Most people are allergic to sulphonamides, or sulfa medications, not medications that contain sulfur, which is different. Provigil does not contain a sulfa group and so would not be related to your sulfa allergy. However, very severe rashes have been associated with provigil, and this could be a different type of reaction. You should see your doctor immediately. ...Read more
