The Use Of Scabimite And How To Get Rid Of A Rash Due To Severe Scabies?
I want to ask, is it true that the use of scamite is only one use, and is used again a week after? Then how to get rid of rashes caused by scabies? Because the rash used to heal and disappear completely, but now after a few days I felt an extraordinary itch all over the body, and the rash appeared again even whole body. Please help, because sudsh can’t take it anymore, counted already 3 months.
Hello Taufik, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Scabies or also called scabies is a disease caused by Sarcoptes scabiei mite infection in the skin. The recommended treatment for scabies is to use Scabimite (Permethrin 5%). Permethrin must be applied to the entire body (from the neck down) and allowed to stand for 8-14 hours (or all night) and then washed afterwards. If symptoms persist, treatment with Permethrin can be repeated 1 week after. The instructions given by your doctor are correct.
You need to know that the mites that cause scabies are mites that are very easily transmitted. To prevent the recurrence of your scabies, here are some other important things you need to do:
People who live in one house with you or someone who lives in one room with you (if you live in a dorm, for example), should receive therapy at the same time as you if you have similar symptoms. All bed linen, pillowcases, bolsters, towels and clothes Your underwear must be washed with hot water to kill mites in these places. All items that cannot be washed (such as pillows, bolsters, beds, sofas) must be covered with plastic until tightly and kept out of reach for 2 weeks. Comb and all hair accessories must soak in hot water and soap for at least 5-10 minutes, do not use it together with others Do cleaning the house (including carpets) with vacuum The things above must also be done to ensure your treatment is successful and the disease does not recur back.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
