Hello, good evening. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Scabies is a condition characterized by the appearance of a very itchy feeling on the skin especially the toes and hands, where itching especially at night, accompanied by a rash of spots resembling pimples or small scaly blisters. In general, the location of these lumps can be found in the armpits, wrists, waist. Buttocks and soles.
Mite transmission, namely:
• Direct contact, such as through hugs or sexual intercourse. Shaking hands only has a small potential to transmit mites.
• Indirect, for example sharing the use of clothing or bedding with people who suffer from scabies
Patients can do simple treatments at home to reduce the itching that results from scabies. Among them:
• Soaking in cold water, or putting a wet cloth on the problematic area of the skin.
• Using calamine lotion. However, consult in advance about its use with a doctor.
For drugs, topical permethrin can be applied which must be applied overnight. The dosage and method of using the drug should be consulted by a doctor or specifically with a skin specialist to get optimal results and the best treatment.
