Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
It needs to be clarified beforehand, did the doctor who examined you said that your skin condition was indeed caused by scabies? Or have you concluded that you have scabies?
Scabies, or more commonly known as scabies, is a skin infection caused by the Sarcoptes scabeii mite. This infection is often characterized by the appearance of a rash and rash on the skin that is red, itchy, and often contains pus in it. If you look in more detail, you will be able to observe the presence of tunnels under the skin which are an opening for the mites to spread and reproduce. These nodules are more dominant in the body folds, such as between the fingers, armpits, groin, buttocks, knees, and so on. However, it does not rule out the rash due to scabies spread to other areas of the body.
However, not always itchy red rash on the skin is caused by scabies. It could also be that these nodules appear due to other infections, for example folliculitis, impetigo, tinea cruris, tinea corporis, and so on. Contact dermatitis, drug eruptions, atopic dermatitis, and several other skin conditions can also cause a scabies-like appearance. Therefore, you should not make a diagnosis too early.
If you feel that there is no significant improvement after undergoing treatment from a doctor, you should check your complaint again to a dermatologist so that further observation and treatment can be done. If necessary, the doctor may take a tissue specimen from the pimple that appears for examination in the laboratory microscopically.
At this time, all you need to do is:
Improve personal hygiene, namely by showering 2 times a day, use antiseptic soap, wear clean towels and clothes, wash your hands and cut your nails diligently.Avoid squeezing, peeling, or gouging a rash that appears on the skin Avoid using other therapies that are not prescribed by a doctor directly Hope this helps ..
