Eczema vs scabies

Common Questions and Answers about Eczema vs scabies


Avatar n tn I've seen 5 different doctors, who after looking at it, have told me that it's not herpes. They said that it's maybe an allergic reaction to something, or friction, or eczema, or folliculitis, or scabies, and one even said "I don't know what it is, but it doesn't look anything like herpes, so just wait and see if it goes away". I've also posted here and even called my dermatologist in my home country for advice.
Avatar n tn I've had the same problem for about two years now. It's embarrassing. I blame it on my eczema but my eczema cream doesn't help it at all. I wish a doctor would respond to what exactly it is. I hate to point to places for people to sign or initial at work to find them staring at my hand, or when my husband caresses my hand came brushes across a patch of skin as rough as cement. Some advise please! !!!
Avatar n tn so i went a doctor (which was not my regular doctor) and she said it was eczema and she prscribed me 3 different meds for it. the only one that worked was the one for the itch. so i called the doctors office back and saw my primary care physican and he said it definatly was NOT eczema, and that he had never seen anything like it and refered me to a dermatologist. but i cant get in to see him for another 3 weeks! my hands and feet really itch and my hands look like some kind of monster.
Avatar n tn i found this looking for a cure to my bumps...Scabies is a common skin infection that causes small itchy bumps and blisters due to tiny mites that burrow into the top layer of human skin to lay their eggs. The burrows sometimes appear as short, wavy, reddish, or darkened lines on the skin's surface, especially around the wrists and between the fingers. A child who has contracted scabies can also develop a bumpy red rash.
Avatar f tn Hello, It can be due to contact dermatitis to the herbal supplements, vascular eczema, stasis dermatitis or scabies bites. For these rashes, do not use any cosmetic products at the sites. You can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin. Also take some antihistaminic like Benadryl and apply a mild steroid cream on the itchy bumps. Also keep the area well moisturized. If the symptoms persist then get an evaluation done from a dermatologist.
Avatar f tn The list of things that produces blisters and lesions genitally is huge.... yeast, molluscum, scabies, eczema. ringworms, shingles, folliculitis etc.
Avatar n tn Anyway, I also read something about the raw food diet helping people with eczema. I know eczema is different than what most of us have but it does have to do with the skin so it may help with what we got too. I dunno though, anyone know anything about that?
Avatar m tn Day 3 I noticed spots (almost like freckles beneath my skin on the head of my penis - very faint but noticeable spots/dots) Went to urgent care, doc told me no way it was herpes and prescribed scabies and fungal creams. Somewhere around day 4-5 I still had all the symptoms + white/yellowish stuff on the bottom of my pubic hair. Was difficult to scrape off and it smelled strange. Day 5 went to planned parenthood and was screened for STI's. All negative including HSV-2.
Avatar m tn Been to a dermatologist and he thought it was scabies. Was not. Still looking for an answer... Not Morgellons, not scabies, not dry skin. Need help.
Avatar f tn I have experienced all the same nastiness of this syndrome as you. I thought I had scabies, dermatitis, psoriasis or some other crap,etc., People think you're insane, and I have scratched my self bloody and scabby too. I have scars all over my upper and lower arms. All the topical stuff in the world for skin does not work, except for what i read about capsacin (sp), as it all has to do with nerve endings from your damaged C-5 and C-6 vertebrae, and impinged nerves.
Avatar n tn I also have the same problem (since pre-puberty) and have not found anything that works. My dermo says that it's eczema and I'm currently using a hydrocortisone cream which alleviates the itch temporarily. I find that it gets worse when I'm stressed and when it's really hot out. Unfortunately, it's something that's here to stay. I actually prefer to use a pantyliner everyday as the skin is so sensitive that it either hurts or feels funny rubbing against my panties.
181575 tn?1250202386 He explained to you that if you fight them with medium-sized arrows they will find a way to escape the arrows. He then says that at that point you switch to bigger arrows. Problem is that the virus already knows about arrows and before too long they can figure out that these are the same arrows...just bigger. They can find a way to escape the larger ones too. Then, your quiver is empty.
Avatar n tn Since i've always felt this prickly itchy feeling whenever there is a rise in my core temperature, i figured it was just something that happend when people get hot and that everyone felt the same sensation (I have eczema so im used to feeling itchy anyway). I mentioned it to my mum a few weeks ago (she works in a pharmacy) and she told me my dad has always had the same thing. It's been annoying me more than usual recently but im fairly used to it now and dont really know any different.
Avatar n tn As of dec my back gets this red spots that do look like bug bites, and as they go away the area seems a little darker than my skin. I will look up!
Avatar f tn (Double and triple blades are kind of like bringing a bull dozer to a delicate garden in need of a small shovel...overkill!) -Try the epilady siggestion to. I might compare using that only vs. following up with a single blade within 24 hrs (much like you do when waxing). The follow up is to avoid or reduce ingrown hairs or skin layer that seem to produce following a wax. What ever works right?? - Good luck everybody!
472570 tn?1274689487 I am only interested in providing evidence vs just treatment or capturing a true live specimen(which is impossible, except in my body fluid, salive, sputum etc (really!) Also, if someone lingers long enough STILL one would notice them too. I did not 'see' them at first either, I rather felt them first for while. Now, there are gzillions, even after horrendous battles and ammunition, gadgets, dollars by the thousands. I feel infested and my health is failing.
Avatar n tn It could be is eczema. I've had discoid eczema for about two years, and have just recently begun itching in and around my outer "lip" area. I have been using cocoa butter and coal tar cream "extremely sparingly" and it seems to help. This could explain not having any other symptoms other then the itching.
Avatar n tn even my heart rate increases. Later I will get eczema on my hands/fingers and terrible hangovers including ear ache. I can drink other beers such as Guinness without a problem (phew). Interestingly I also feel bad after eating white bread so it could be either the wheat itself or perhaps the yeast that causes the problems. Interesting to test diff combos and see how your body reacts (I'm a biologist by training so I got some satisfaction by playing around and narrowing it down).
Avatar n tn I went to EVERY type of eye doctor and they know that it's not herpes, but they don't know what it is. It got soo bad I started using my Son's cream for eczema (fluticasone prop 0.05% cream) and as long as I use it once every day it keeps it away. If I skip a couple of days it comes back. I'm waiting to financially be able to go to a Dermatologist (of course lying to him stating it's on my cheeks) and just saying "look, this WORKS. But it's not strong enough to stop whatever this is".
Avatar n tn I was so worried that I had his pediatrician treat the entire family for scabies thinking we all had something living on us. It didn't help at all. He still itches and almost cries when I ask him to take a bath. It's sheer torture for both of us. I have no idea what this is....... I live in fear when I hear stories of liver failure, etc... I had been diagnosed with elevated liver enzymes...has anyone else had the same problem?
Avatar n tn I myself have the same problem. but i suffer from eczema. After i get out of the shower i have red spots on my body that itch and itch for quite some time after i get out. I usually get a mild soap and a cream to help the dryness and itch. hope this helps!
Avatar f tn I have my 2nd app't with my family doctor today, but I can tell he's clueless. He thought it was possibly scabies (!) or a mild case of shingles---sorry, wrong. I don't know why I'm going back there, but but maybe it will make him aware of brachioradial pruritus.
530191 tn?1214166411 I was on that for seven years and finally got a sensitivity to it and it was no longer effective. With autoimmune urticaria vs. chronic idiopathic urticaria (which they said was what i had for eight of the ten years) I couldn't use antihistimines at all with effect, doxepin was the only one! Plaquenil is our next option. However using synthroid (synthetic thyroid) daily has done more for my hives than anything used thus far.
