Customer Question

Two months ago I caught scabies and was treated. I hadn't had any rashes or symptoms until this week I went on antibiotics and broke out in a rash on my elbows, knees, and feet. My scabies rash spread on my skin in a few weeks while this rash showed up in less than two days. I'm worried this could be scabies again, or could it be an allergic reaction to my antibiotics?

My scabies rash was also really random across my torso, back, and arms while this rash is symmetrical on my elbows and knees.

It is too fast for scabies. I think it is an allergic reaction to the antibiotics. You should stop taking it and take antihistamine such as benadryl, zyrtec.
