Hello Tuti suarni, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Previously it needs to be clarified again about complaints and the journey of the disease from your child. When was your child diagnosed with scabies? What ointment is given to your child, is it skabimite? And how long or how many times has the ointment been given? Are there family members who have scabies or have similar itching?
Scabies or scabies is a disease caused by lice or mites. Sarcoptes scabiei. This disease is very contagious and can spread through direct contact (touching), dressing clothes, or the same bed with fellow sufferers. Usually itching is felt especially at night , rashes or spots scattered in the hands, between fingers, armpits, stomach, or other body parts.
You should first find out whether it is indeed scabies or other diseases such as allergies, contact dermatitis, skin infections, or hives (urticaria). Usually if it is scabies, then other family members usually also have similar complaints and must be treated in order to avoid germs that continue to develop prickly.
You are advised to consult with your previous doctor or dermatologist to determine the exact cause of your complaint. If it is proven that you have scabies again, the doctor will give you drugs to kill the mites such as permethrine (the active substance or component of scabimite). You should also follow instructions from your doctor, about how to use and it is usually recommended to be given the drug twice with a gap of 7-14 days in order to kill all existing mites.
Care must also be taken to treat others around you who may be infected with scabies. You are also advised to clean all your clothes, belongings, bedding, carpet by washing with hot water and drying in the sun.
Hopefully this information can be useful for you, thank you.
