Hello, I would like to ask about the after effects of using the scabimite drug. After I treated scabies all over the body, especially on the buttocks and I left it for 12 hours, the next day I felt that the bumps on my buttocks did not decrease but instead increased. Is this natural? I’m not allergic to permethrin. Please answer, Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
It needs to be clarified beforehand, what are the symptoms of scabies that you are experiencing? Have you ever seen a doctor and been diagnosed with scabies? Do you use the drug based on a prescription directly from a doctor?
Scabies is a layman's term that generally refers to scabies, which is a skin infection caused by the Sarcoptes scabiei mite. Scabies is characterized by the appearance of a very itchy rash on the skin area, especially in the folds of the body, such as between the fingers, buttocks, groin, under the breasts, genitals, and so on. This rash is often reddish or brown in color, rises from the surface of the skin, contains fluid or pus. The itching will be very intense, especially at night. Scabies can be easily transmitted from person to person, either through direct or indirect contact.
A doctor or dermatologist can easily diagnose scabies based on a regular physical examination or it can be assisted by taking a sample of skin scrapings for microscopic examination. However, not with ordinary people. Therefore, if you have never checked your complaint to a doctor, it is not certain that scabies is caused by scabies. In many cases, there are many conditions that can cause complaints like scabies, for example miliaria, impetigo, folliculitis, contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, and so on. So, handling this condition is not necessarily appropriate to do using permethrin ointment (for example scabimite) as you do. This improper handling can make your complaint even more spread. So, not only due to allergies.
The right step that you should do at this time is, first check your complaint with your doctor. Here are some suggestions that you can do for a while:
Not scratching, handling, or forcibly breaking rashes on skin Wash your hands and cut your nails Diligently Boil your clothes, towels, and sprays in boiling water to kill mites, eggs, and mite droppings that may still be settling. Diligent baths, do not rub Excessive skin Avoid contact between the body and substances that may trigger allergies or irritation Clean your home furniture and also improve the sanitation of the environment where you live. If you feel itchy enough in the rash that appears, you can sprinkle salicyl powder so that the itching subsides.
