Possible scabies? Ahhh!

I am uninsured, it takes a lot for me to go to the doctor. After almost a week of a rash on the tops of my thighs, knees and left forearm, that was to the point of bleeding from itching I went to the doctor.

He said it was a allergic reaction to something I came in contact with, good great, wrote me a script for steroids and for the itch. All meds are gone and still have it.

I went back today and she said possibly scabies, DESPITE not having ANY red bumps/marks on hands, feet, behind knees, armpits, none in the groin area, or butt area.

So I have to get a prescription cream, she said she has a refill on it just in case, she said if it's not scabies she doesn't know what it is.

I am a stay at home mom, I don't go out a lot, my oldest is in 1st grade, NO-ONE else has it, NO ONE we know, we are VERY clean (I actually have OCD with cleaning).


Since 10am, my arm has only itched, not my thighs at ALL. (I haven't picked up my prescription yet)

Could it still be scabies?

Re: Possible scabies? Ahhh!

Wondering why they didn't scrape the area and look at it under a microscope? That would have confirmed the diagnosis of scabies. It is painless, easy, cheap, and would save you from using a poison on your skin that you may not need.
