They itch like crazy and there is a small rash that is barely visible around my belly button and I itch around my thighs and butt but do not have a rash there. I have been putting mupirocin ointment on it that was given to me for the infection on my leg. The blisters are not very visible unless I masturbate and then they get inflamed and itch like crazy. Is this scabies or herpes or just carry over from the staph? Please help.

And after shower no itching also. She went to a doctor and the doctor said she has scabies. The thing is I live with her, our coats are in the same closet, we share blankets, we sit next to each other sometimes, we use the same chair for hours when we use the computer, we sit on the same couch when watching tv.

Hello, For these itchy bumps, I would like to rule out scabies. The non itchy bumps can be just irritated hair follicles or folliculitis. Scabies is an infestation of the skin with the Sarcoptes scabiei mite. It is characterized by intense itching, usually at night and by small insect-type bites lesions on the skin. Diagnosis of scabies is made by scraping the skin and viewing the material under a microscope to see the characteristic mite or eggs.
Topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or neomycin containing ointment are also useful. But if the symptoms are severe and there is severe itching then scabies needs to be ruled out. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
It appeared to be white, then red when i stretched the skin. I have not been sexually active for three months, and used a condom then. Before that it was October of 2008. I do no shave, but I do sweat a lot. It doesn't itch enough to ruin my day, but is noticeable. At this point I do not think it is scabies since it did not itch until this morning. Any thoughts?

Hi, About three weeks ago I had a friend come stay with me who had scabies but did not know until she went home. I of course freaked out once I knew she had scabies and analyzed my body continuously. A few very red blistery looking bumps showed up on the back of my knee about a week later and I immediately went to the doctor, got the cream, applied it to my husband and I and thoroughly washed everything in the entire house. I then went out of town for a week and just got home last Sunday.
About 10 years ago in college I had scabies, but these bumps do not look like that. I have not had any sexual contact with anyone in three months, but did travel internationally in July, where I was intimate but safe. In reading online some of the symptoms seem to align with bed bugs, however my bumps do not really match the pictures I have seen. In certain places they are linear, with three marks.
She told me with utmost certainty that it was scabies. I know it wasn't on several levels, but she didn't listen. For one, no one around me, including my girlfriend whom I sleep with every night, has never got them! And scabies are suppose to be highly contagious. So, its not scabies! For a good while, I thought it was heat rash, but it comes on when I haven't been in the heat. It's come on during the winter even.
We used at LEAST 10-15 applications of Permethrin 5% cream, all over, left for 12hrs at a time over a good few months... The Scabies took a LONG time to get rid of. Now, thankfully the Scabies has gone. However, everytime my partner stays over, he has an awful outburst of what looks exactly like folliculitis and the doctor has given him antibiotics and every cream you care to mention (steroid, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial... everything).
I have had an isolated itchy rash for almost a year now, it was just on my abdomen for 6 months but now it is getting more widespread, on my ankles, underarms, thighs, now my wrists are beginning to go for the first time. It started when I moved away from home and I wondered if it was a change in the water, maybe more flouride or harder water?
earlier we(my husband ,son and myself) were diagnosed scabies so we overcome it with KWELLEDA LOTION FOR SKIN but after that these lumps pop up again (for my son only) every time we change the basement ,we treated him with the same lotion he recovered but this time again we r worried how can we overcome it completely .
I tend to masturbate regularly and hadn't had sex for a good 4-5 months before this. She has no signs of anything so I am thinking this could be some kind of irritation. There is no white spots or anything like that. And they only stay red for a little bit and then fade but are still noticeable. There are no signs of any hair follicles, and wouldn't think there would be on the head. There is no signs of anything on the shaft or anywhere else.
I recommend a consultation with a board certified dermatologist for proper diagnosis and treatment. Scabies, an infestation with a mite, Sarcoptes scabii, for example, is very itchy, looks like small red bumps with a linear scale (burrow), can spread all over and often involves hands, feet, underarms, waistline, genital area. Burrows can often be seen between the fingers and on the wrists. Disclaimer: Dr.

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 thought it may be scabies but noone else in my family has been itchy for has any signs of scabies my infant has no signs either.. so im pretty clueless about what's wrong..
Avoid any kind of cosmetics. Topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or neomycin containing ointment are also useful on the bumps and for the itching you can take antihistaminics like Benadryl. In case the symptoms persist consult a dermatologist in that case. If the symptoms persist then get bed bug bites and scabies bites ruled out.

Then I visited my daughter in florida and we went to the beach often I was there for almost a month and noticed they had almost gone. When I came back to Nebraska and stopped going to the pool I noticed they are coming back. I thought it might be dry skin but, it is not. I thought it maybe scabies but, they are not as I did have them one time. I am washing everything once again and going to use the petty egg and soak in oatmeal with tree oil as this does keep the itching down.
I had blood work done in general and specifically for syphilis both coming back negative. This began when I slept with my dog who I am allergic to but I no longer am living with the dog. I also have been cleared of scabies and herpes. It really appears as thought the majority of the bumps start with my follicles. Also It must be contagious because my girlfriend had recently gotten a rash on her arms and glutes. Does anybody have any idea what this is? or what could be causing this?
