Itchy Skin after scabies


Last July i started getting all these itchy red dots all over my body, i went to the doctor who did a blood test (all clear). She told me it was probably scabies (im not 100% convinced it was coz i didnt have any bites in any crevices just on my legs, torso and arms) and to complete a treatment. Well i completed the treatment and all the dots are gone but the itchy is still there 7 months later. Its not all the time and its not too bad but its annoying.

Is it possible that it wasnt scabies and could be something more sinister? (even if the blood test was clear?)

Could my skin just be more sensitive now that's why it still feel itchy some of the time?

Any advice would help......

Re: Itchy Skin after scabies

I had somethng similar last year, it started on the back of my ear and spread. I tried a lot of creams and what finally helped with the itch and dryness was whole milk :S
I used a cotton to put the cold milk, then let it dry for 15-20 mins, then I just washed with fresh water. I avoided using other creams like for a week. It was a miracle! the downsize... well the smell while it dries.
When I felt better, I just started using non-allergenic / non perfumed body cream and baby oil.
I hope it helps!
