The Body Itches Especially When Sweating. Symptoms Of Scabies?
Hello, I want to ask again. Continued from my previous question r nDoes scabies get more itchy / spreads if the sufferer sweats ?? r nFor example like this, every time I sweat it will feel very itchy and once because the itching is not restrained I scratch, it gets wider (a rash appears reddish rash). And often very itchy at night. Am I infected with scabies (scabies) or tinae cruris (ringworm)? The most severe areas of infection are in the groin and under the armpits. I have been using ketoconazole cream and tablets for 3 days. R n r nAnd every time it feels very itchy and scratches on the itchy area a rash / reddish spots appear, but it doesn’t resemble a ring (unlike the characteristic tinae cruris / ringworm). If I really have scabies (scabies), is ketoconazole right to treat it. R n r nThank you.
scabies or scabies is an infection of mites. Scabies infection is usually transmitted through objects that contain mites, such as clothes, pants, sheets, towels. Scabies can cause symptoms such as itching, especially at night, itching can worsen with sweating, and usually scabies is accompanied by a history of the same disease in people who live in the same house. Scabies can occur in various parts of the body, including the groin and armpits. So from your situation, maybe the situation you are experiencing is due to scaies.
If it is because of scabies, it will require treatment using certain antiscabies drugs.
Diagnosing scabies cannot be done based solely on the symptoms you mention, it must be examined by a doctor directly. Fungal infections such as tinea cruris can also cause similar symptoms.
Therefore, it is recommended that you temporarily stop using ketoconazole drugs, because taking inappropriate drugs can actually make complaints worse. Immediately consult a doctor, so that the doctor can provide the right therapy.
