Common Questions and Answers about Bactroban for scabies

bactroban

Your girlfriend should be examined as well, just to be sure she doesn't also have staph, although your condition doesn't sound as though it was caused by that bacteria (even though the culture showed it.) Your rash does not sound like an allergy. You should continue the Bactroban and Keflex for the duration your doctor recommended. You should also tell your doctor that your girlfriend is itchy too.
Hello, Without examination,confirmation of a diagnosis is tough but it can be folliculitis,contact dermatitis,rash due to friction rub with clothes, dermatitis (atopic, contact, allergic) , scabies or excessive sweating causing sweat dermatitis. You may try calamine lotion on the rash. You should also maintain hygiene and try to keep the area clean and dry, wear loose-fitting cotton clothing. Also use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove.Avoid any kind of cosmetics.
I've been taking antibiotic creams, such as Bactroban, for the past two weeks, and it has been helping, but whenever an infected hair follicule heals up, it seems a blister appears, then when the blister goes away, another blister appears. If the antibiotics don't work, is there any other things i should consider? Like, laser removal or draining?
Itching of scabies persists for a few days after completion of treatment also and sometimes there may be recurrent and chronic cases which may require oral treatment of ivermectin. It is basically reserved for very severe, chronic and stubborn scabies that does not respond to conventional therapies. So you should continue the permethrin treatment after consulting a dermatologist and if the symptoms persist then oral ivermectin may need to be prescribed.
He did not examine my penis, but assumed - based on my vivid description - that I had some sort of bacterial irritation and prescribed Bactroban ointment. I used it for two days, during which time the irritation seemed to worsen, and the site on the shaft of my penis now seemed to display what looked like a very mild rash over about a 1/2 sq. inch area. Still no lesions or sores, however, and no pain, no myalgia, no fever or flu-like symptoms.
When the itching got worse I stared taking Allegra and Pepcid, and hydrocortisone cream since it started showing up other places too, which only provided minor relief. Then I wondered if I had bed bugs or scabies (I'm a nurse in a busy ER), or an allergy to my detergent, so I changed to All Free and Clear Detergent/Fabric Softener and washed all my bedding and clothes in hot water and dried them in the dryer on high. Also got a mattress cover, and pillows and pillow covers.
Anti-itch drugs, often antihistamine, may reduce the itch during a flare up of eczema, and the reduced scratching in turn reduces damage and irritation to the skin. For mild-moderate eczema a weak steroid may be used (e.g. hydrocortisone or desonide), whilst more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid (e.g. clobetasol propionate, fluocinonide). Eczema can be exacerbated by dryness of the skin. Moisturizing is one of the most important self-care treatments for sufferers of eczema.
I washed my personal bedding and ALL of my clothing in hot water twice and then dried it on high for over 2 hours. I aired out my room for all three days. I was also given hydroxizyne (sp?) for the itch. Cut to 7 days later and the rash is still here, still kicking, and still driving me crazy. The medicine barely helps the itch. I literally am burning off patches from scratching of skin which is painful.I take cool/warm showers everyday before bed.

You need to get her into doctor as it could be MRSA but in any case it is highly contagious and she will need antibiotics for it. Try to not share towels and wash anything in contact with it in hot soapy water. Wash hands frequently. Try to keep her hands off of it.
About 10 month ago i was having sex with a girl who seemed to be clean and the condom broke, we continued on for around 3 minutes before realising and stopping before finishing with oral sex. The next day the head of my penis became itchy and then began to shred, I then began to search for possible causes and discovered that was was most likely just friction burn.
Hello, From the symptoms it can be due to insect bites, hives, heat rash or scabies bites if the lesions are itchy and folliculitis if they are non itchy or painless and herpes sores if they are painful open sores that tingle and scab over. Take some oral antihistaminic like Benadryl or Claritin if there is any itching and apply some calamine lotion on the rash. Also wear cotton clothes and apply a topical antibiotic cream like Bactroban.
They are red all around the area for a few days and then subside and dry up. There are still marks from the first few. I seem to get one more every few days. The bites were on the back of my arm, on my forearm, on my wrist, on my breast, and today on the top of my leg near the edge of my underwear. What else could this be besides bites? I do live in the mountain area. Any help would be great.
it take time and effort. Even after gone the symptoms will appear.
They are not hive looking and do not burn, but they do itch! Some bumps do not heal, but have been there for several months. Did I mention that they itch! I have been suffering with this for 3 years. I am using hydrocortisone cream, clindamycin phosphate gel, and antibiotics per Doctors prescription. This medication has had no effect on the bumps.
At first i found an itchy patch under my arm and thought nothing of it till the next day, it had developed into rashes and had spread to my neck and shoulder. When i went to see my GP, he had to ask for a second opinion as he though they were some kind of bites but the send GP had put it down to Shaving infections, even though i had stressed that i only use tweezers, he insisted that they were the same thing!!! And was prescribed anit-biotics both orally & cream form for 7 days.
Hello, Thank you very much for your post and apologies for not having replied sooner. It is difiicult to give you an answer about diagnosis with examining you and if your symptoms perist, my advice to you is to consult with the doctor. From your description of the symptoms, they seem consistent with balanitis. The cause of balanitis could be fungal, but also bacterial, and sometimes mixed, but it can also be casued by a skin problem.
eczema, bacterarial tests (staph aureus), even did tests for scabies (negative), did all tests on STDs and HIV... and nothing. went on a full course of Pristinamycin and 2 weeks later, it is back... One reader of the forum (CindyNelson) suggested tests for thyroid and altho the TSH looked normal, we found anti-bodies (anti TPO) higher than normal.
It is hard for me to say without looking. In general, widesprad, aymmetrical, red and itchy bumps tend to be caused by a virus, rather than an allergy. They often hang around for a while, and go away without treatment. If yours have lasted weeks and started to spread, I would advise that you show them to a doctor, since only in that way can you get a definitive diagnosis. Best. Dr.
E-mycin, Bactroban, Psorcon-E .05%, Triamcinolone ointment .5%, Lubriderm with betamethansone valerate, and had two cortisone shots in August. The cortisone shots were my only true relief, which lasted exactly two weeks. I received 80 units of some sort. The Psorcon-E helps, but the second dermatologist I saw thought it was two strong to keep using. Now I have chickenpox-like scars on my legs and lesser scars on my arms. My right leg is flaring up just like it did in Feb.
Some originally thought it was scabies and the treatment for that did seem to work. We have used the natural treatment of mixing 4 parts neem leaf powder (not neem oil they are not from the same part of the tree and though it can help with the dry patches of skin it does not work the same to kill the infection as does the neem leaf powder) to 1 part turmeric and making a paste with water. We apply this nightly for 1 to 3 weeks and it seems to go away.
I had for about 10 months now. But I was told that it meant be Scabies? (Heard from one of my friends). I keep telling my Doctor whats wrong, but everytime I go see her, they heal up, and she doesnt see anything, than they come back. I was worried maybe they were scabies sooo I asked her for treatment. She said I did'nt need it, and she was right the creams didn't work either. She thinks its all in my head? But why?? I never had any problems with my skin before & I hate it.
looking substance called keratin.They may occur anywhere on body but scalp, ears, back, face, and upper arm, are common sites for sebaceous cysts. A cutaneous horn is a conical projection above the surface of the skin that resembles a miniature horn. Cutaneous horns usually are asymptomatic.But sometimes they can become inflamed and cause pain. I suggest you to get an evaluation done from a dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis.
I found a person on the MSN body odor support forum who had a bad odor for a long time and then the odor went away after being treated for H. Pylori, but then the coughing and sneezing started after that. Interesting. Another person on the MSN board said he was also treated for H. Pylori and then the coughing/sneezing started! Question: Do any of you burp a lot? Here is a thread that should be read: http://curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=561071#i Read the replies to that link also.
